May Flowers- 1,000 Letters of Support
According to a Pennsylvania State University and UC Irvine study, “small gestures in everyday life,” like showing compassion, performing random acts of kindness, and smelling a beautiful flower help us feel loved. During the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever to fight loneliness with love for our elders and support our healthcare workers.
That is where you come in. Join us as we work towards sending 1,000 “May Flowers” to elderly and workers.
You can submit by yourself, with friends, or even at school or the office. We are not all Hemingway’s, but we can all make something beautiful for ourselves and others by putting pen to paper. “May Flowers” to send include:
• Drawings (of flowers, or anything that brightens your day!)
• Window decorations: a handmade window “flower” and words of encouragement to display in and around the facility
The CDC, World Health Organization, and Surgeon General have indicated that there is currently no evidence that COVID-19 is being spread through the mail.
To make sure that facilities are not overrun with mail, your school or community organizations will fill out the below contact form and we will coordinate with your organization on the name and location of the facility you will be sending your May Flowers to.
Any questions or if you are a healthcare facility that would like to partake can be directed to PenPal@WorthyInsurance.com
Will your church, school, athletic team, or community join us in sharing our may flowers? If so, fill out the form below and lets get started!
Before sending your letter(s), here are some helpful guidelines:
1. Letters must be legible (large print) and handwritten. No worries if you’re not artistic– make your card something you’d like to receive.
2. Do you best to avoid Politics and Religion.
3. Exclude the date (day, month, and year).
4. Embrace creativity! Recipients love it when the letters and drawings are personal. We encourage you to make your letters detailed, thoughtful and heartfelt. We have also included a few coloring pages that you can print out here. (Stay Positive Coloring Page )(Thinking Of You Flowers)
5. Be kind and thoughtful (more than talking about yourself). This is a one-way letter exchange, meaning you may not receive a letter back, so remember that no reciprocation attached is part of the beauty of your act of kindness, and the recipients don’t feel burdened by feeling obligated or being unable to respond.
6. Envelope your letters if you can! It’s so much nicer to open up an enveloped card, don’t you think? If you’re sending more than 1 letter, leave your enveloped letters unsealed and unstamped and put them in a larger envelope or box to send.
7. Share your act of kindness! We love seeing photos of your letter writing, and it helps promote our cause more than you know. Tag us @worthyinsurance
