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


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!!

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!

I will be sending 2 a week for as long as they keep posting on their facebook!

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.
