Many Many Thanks


I have been overwhelmed by the response to our Cards for Just Because campaign. I was up to the wee hours (watching an epic Phillies win) addressing envelopes to send out to you all & am still not done! The emails have been so positive, sweet, and at times touching & moving. I'd guess that 60% of you mentioned you had someone specific in mind to receive this card. We had a great international response, thanks to a few blogs that posted on our behalf (thank you!!), and almost all of them said that they'd understand if we weren't sending them out of the US, but thanked us for the gesture. Amazing.

This whole experience has been simply heart warming. Thanks to you & anyone who passed this along, we're sending out about 400 note cards all over the world. That's a lot of simple gestures and I thank you from the very bottom of my heart.

Back to addressing...

The idea alone was the perfect way to honor your mom on its own, the result times 100. Congrats on an amazing tribute.

I was truly amazed at the speed at which your card made it here to the UK and right out to me in the middle of no-where in the countryside. It really brightened my morning because I had been put on bed-rest by the doctor - perfect pick-me-up! A massive thank you xx

This was such a lovely tribute Liz! I sent my card out to my 91-year old grandad the other day.
