Thinking of You Week (September 23 – 29, 2019) is just around the corner. First launched in the U.K., this weeklong celebration seeks to create awareness for the positive impact a greeting card with a handwritten note can have on the recipient—especially when it’s unexpected—and to encourage more meaningful connections and caring interactions throughout the year.
While greeting cards are often sent to friends and family, this fun week encourages us to reach out to other special people in our lives—a favorite teacher, important public servant, emergency room doctor, nursing home resident, mail carrier, and the barista who always remembers how we like our coffee. Embrace the challenge to create a wave of happiness and make someone smile with just three little words: “Thinking of You.”
Once again, the US Postal Service (USPS) is supporting the event with a Thinking of You postmark. Last year over 500 million residences across the US saw the commemorative postmark on first class mail during the month of September.
