National Thinking Of You Week Event
National Thinking of You Week has been launched by the Greeting Card Association to highlight the emotional power of sending and receiving greeting cards. 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. We're so happy with this initiative as it's just exactly what our cards and our philosophy is about. We've never been about birthday cards; we've always been about special cards for special people (and that's all of us) for any occasion and for "just because" occasions. So completely out of character, we are joining in the celebrations and are holding a week long event at our HQ - it's actually quite exciting! This is what we are going to do, and it would be fab if local people could come along and support us:
- Pick up your address book and come to our HQ in Garboldisham between 9 and 12 every morning in the week of September 22 - 26
- Choose up to 7 of our woolly cuddly cards at half price - what a great opportunity to have a good look at all the zillions of woolly animal cards we do, and to discover that we're more than just about sheep and dogs.
- Sit at our lovely big kitchen table and write each of the cards to someone special in your life. We will have some creative help on hand to help inspire you
- Drink our tea or coffee, eat our cake (I must improve my baking skills, so am keenly watching the BBC's Bake Off series for some hints and tips!)
- Enjoy some time out of your normal routine to sit and relax.
- We will post the cards for you - we will have stamps available.
- For every card you write and send, you will receive a free raffle ticket. So 7 cards sent gives you 7 chances to win the raffle (which will be some sort of stationery products from our portfolio)
We will also be highlighting how we will be supporting our charity of the year. This year we have chosen to support Nelson's Journey, a Norfolk charity supporting bereaved children. You can read about the amazing things they do hereWe will be showcasing these 2 activities at the business exhibition in Diss (open to the public and to businesses), Diss on View so do pop along and find out more It's going to be a really fun week, and we would love to see lots of people queuing at the door with pen and address book in hand. Will you be there?
