I recently got an email from Jessica telling me about “The Friend Send”. If you’ve never heard about it – you are in for a treat! I absolutely love this idea!
From their website:
“The Friend Send is an initiative helping kids 12 and younger feel less alone. We send cards with supportive messages to kids who are bullied or going through a rough time, to let them know there are always people out there rooting for them!”
This project started back in 2017 when the creator, Jessica, and her twins Jeremy and Tamara decided to do something special for kids that had not received any RSVPs to their birthday parties. Since then, they have sent out over 500 cards!
There is even a facebook group
you can join to send cards to those that need them most! This group has sent out well over 1000 cards!
Isn’t this so cool? I know I’m going to sign up and send some cards- you should too! For more information on how to get involved you can visit The Friend Send website HERE.
