The aim is to create a wave of love, caring and happiness across the nation by getting everyone to send a card a day during the last week in September.
It’s been scientifically proven that receiving a handwritten card makes people feel much more special than receiving texts, emails or Facebook messages. And it feels really good to send them too!
Cognitive neuroscientist, Dr Lynda Shaw firmly believes that receiving cards helps to stave off feelings of loneliness and isolation, increases self-esteem and even to ward off the early stages of depression.
Events will be taking place across the country – so look out for posters and flyers in card and gift shops in your area.
Let’s all get happy by connecting in this most meaningful way!
