Launched in 2018 with the sponsorship of the GCA, Thinking of You Week encourages everyone to send a card a day for a week, Sep 23-29, 2019. The U.S. Postal Service’s Thinking of You postmark in 2018 helped spread the message to over 500 million households! Nicky Burton, owner of Calypso Cards, will present ideas and suggestions about this opportunity to get involved in your local community, to encourage people to reach out to others, and, incidentally, raise the profile of the greeting card industry, which, after all, is all about personal connection.
