PLEASE READ THOROUGHLY!

WOW~ I just ran across this amazing Senior Residence on Facebook (My cousin posted it for me to see!)

https://www.facebook.com/VictorianSeniorCare/

They are asking people to send postcards and happy mail to their residents! Scroll down a bit for the address and PHOTOS of each resident and their interests! This is SUPER AMAZING! I'd LOVE for each of us to send THREE (or more!) residents a postcard or letter or some happy mail!!!

Go to that facebook and SCROLL DOWN - there are several posts of people requesting happy mail - you will see their names on their photos and they are holding up their posters asking for pals! I LOVE THIS SO MUCH!!!!!

The addresses can be different as there are several Senior Living Centers featured! This is SO AMAZING!

Easy too -- Just post in the comments below after you've sent your happy mail and to whom you sent and why you chose those three residents. - Nothing to send to your partner - Just to someone at one of the Senior Centers listed on the link!

If your partners posted below in the comments telling which three people they sent to and why--- then rate them with a 5 -- but I hope your partners will rate you a 5 and a Heart coz wow this is one heartfelt project!!

There is no reason to rate lower than a 5 if your partner has posted below in comments and said to which residents they have sent!

Simple and easy and will mean SO VERY MUCH to someone who needs a smile!!

****NO NEED TO WAIT FOR PARTNERS TO BE ASSIGNED TO START -- YOU CAN SEND YOUR HAPPY MAIL OFF AS SOON AS YOU CHOOSE YOUR THREE (OR MORE) RESIDENTS ON THE FACEBOOK LINK ABOVE!****

Are they member of swap bot? Just wondering how we would get rated

ScrapHappyGabi 06/30/2020 #

@tammielynn1969 -Thanks! I just re-read and updated the swap to make it more clear :)

If your partners posted below in the comments telling which three people they sent to and why--- then rate them with a 5 -- but I hope your partners will rate you a 5 and a Heart coz wow this is one heartfelt project!!

If your partner has posted below in comments and said to which residents they have sent, rate at least a 5 :) Hearts for this swap would be lovely and in the spirt of it! But at your discretion! ;)

Sent happy mail to 3 lovely people today: Juanita, Priscilla, and Vivian! Also am planning on sending mail to Dorothy, Tom, and Gertrude.

I chose to send to the first 3 ladies because they are around the age my great Bubbie would’ve been, had she not passed when I was 11. I just want them to know someone cares for them!

I chose Barry from the Lenoir center because who would not want to talk about food, I chose John D from the Center of Concord because I grew up listening to Blues so he reminded me of my dad, and I chose gloria also from the Center of Concord because I love how she says she wants to stay active, I love people with that energy!!

Will take pics of the envelopes in case is needed, I am writing to them right now!

kikakreativa 07/12/2020 #

The wonderful residents I chose are Evelyn, Annarah and Benji! My parents are in an Assisted Living and with Covid not allowing visitors, they get lonely! What a great Swap Idea! Thank you!

Ciao ! I am preparing the envelopes for 3 people, but I think I will send many more. I chose Mike (to whom I sent 2 postcards, a small magnet and two Italian candies), Barbara (who has the same passions as me, I send her a postcard, a letter, an origami) and phyllis to whom I will send postcards designed by me so I can color them). I am really enjoying it !!!

Such a great swap! I sent to Marva a former teacher,and Murray who loves gardening from the Edenton Center and Teresa who loves tattoos from the Archdale center

TrixieShakewell 07/30/2020 #

I wrote to Eugene because he's Asian like me and likes to drive and listen to the radio so I sent a postcard of my home state where we have lovely roads to drive through the forests. I wrote a letter to Annie because she looks AWESOME and listed painting and sculpture as her interests. And I wrote Barry, who wanted to talk about food! My daughters also sent some letters and I think we'll send to others too :)

Thanks for hosting this swap! This is such a great way for us to use our talents and share our hobbies.

I'm writing to Joe, because he reminds me lot of my Dad, and he seems like a fun person. Also writing to Bruce. He didn't have very many comments, so I think he could probably use some extra love. And Frances..... Because she is absolutely adorable!

CraftyShana76 07/31/2020 #

I’m writing to the following ladies:

Barbara- I’m in healthcare and would Love to trade stories with her. I also love James Patterson.

Linda C — I love chocolate and crime shows too

Sharon — I would love to trade stories with her as she used to work at a hospital and I work at one currently.

I chose to send to:

Mary (not contrary) - she seems fun and her smile made me happy. I had a book journal to send to log her favorite books since she loves to read.

Pat T - has small town values and believes variety is the spice of life. What a great combo! Plus, she was an educator ❤️

Phyllis - she looks so sweet, and she didn't have as many likes and comments on her photo. I wanted to brighten her day!

This is such a great swap and it feels so rewarding to send some love.
