I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for CaringBridge. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
Have you heard about a site called CaringBridge? It's an easy way for people to keep up with friends and loved ones who have life-changing health issues and hear about their progress.
My sister-in-law used a similar site to keep friends and family around the country updated during her husband's car accident. (You can read more about Marne's story here.) It was a blessing to our family to be able to leave supportive messages for her during such a difficult time. And for friends to coordinate meals and visits for her and the girls.
Now through Nov. 17th, CaringBridge, the nonprofit caring social network, and
Hallmark Cards are kicking off the “Caring Messages” card contest during
National Family Caregiver Month. This is to
celebrate and support caregivers, the strong personal heroes who
tirelessly help families get through one day at a time when experiencing
The “Caring Messages” card contest
encourages participants to draw on personal experiences as a caregiver
or as someone receiving care and create a message of love and support
appropriate for a caregiver.
Participants can submit one card idea in
each of the following categories to www.hallmarkcontests.com:
Support and Encouragement:
What can you say to lift someone up or help them get through the day?
Let them know you’re thinking of them, send happy thoughts and cheer
Compliments and Appreciation: Let someone know how much you admire them: What they do and how they do it.
Words from the Wise:
If you’ve experienced something yourself you understand what it’s
really like. Write a supportive message for others based on what you’ve
learned or what you needed to hear.
partnership aims to provide patients, caregivers and supporters with
love, hope and compassion. Winners announced in February will receive a
cash prize, and their entry will be sold at Hallmark.com with in-store
sale to be determined.
