Spreading Hope and Brotherly Love Through Greeting Cards

Lilla Roger's Greeting Card from the Hope Collection

In anticipation of the Week of Hope, which kicks off on Tuesday, there’s been a lot of talk around the office about who people are sending their free Hope greeting cards to.   Once I heard about the program, I knew exactly who would be on the receiving end of mine, my sister.  I’m four years older than she is, and I think it is fair to say I was a little hard on her throughout our childhood (aren’t older brothers supposed to pick on their sisters?).  She has recently been going through some difficult times and I thought I would try and cheer her up a little.  I found this perfect card from Lilla Rogers… although I hope it doesn’t cause any flashbacks from when I held her upside down in our tree house.  I added a photo of us on summer vacation in 1984 (I can’t believe I wore shorts that short!) and a message saying that if she can survive me as a kid, she can get through anything.  It may not change her situation, but hopefully it will brighten her day.

    This is such a great idea- I think I’ll send mine to my cousin who is the most positive, giving person who is dying of cancer.

    And hey, I’d actually like to see the photo being used in this card above! Hysterical!

    Thanks for this opportunity, and Hope cards

    I am sending a card of hope to our 18 year old God daughter who is currently attending US Army Basic Training. I am not quite sure a card will make the gruelling days any better, however, just thought a card letting her know that we are out here, lifting her up, would be a wonderful sweet spot during mail call.
