ORGANIZATION: AmeriCorps Seniors RSVP

Image_202201170928

AmeriCorps Seniors RSVP is partnering with Revive and Thrive Project to collect cards of encouragement for individuals and families in our community who are dealing with an acute health challenge such as cancer, heart failure or organ transplants. These households often have other barriers to healing and thanks to Revive and Thrive Project are able to receive 12 weeks of nourishing, free, home-delivered meals to help them heal.

It's already been a long winter and isolating especially for those vulnerable to COVID complications due to a health crisis such as cancer, organ transplants, congestive heart failure and other conditions. A few encouraging words from you are sure to brighten their day and go a long way to helping reduce their isolation and boost their mood.

Draw a picture, include a quote, introduce yourself. Be creative, encouraging and positive. Write from the heart, or use some of the example messages below. RSVP has cards and envelopes available upon request.

  • Sending you a hug for a great day today
  • We hope you have a great day
  • Good thoughts and warm wishes to brighten your day
  • Keep your chin up and keep fighting
  • We are thinking of you
  • Sending cheerful thoughts and a little sunshine your way today
  • We are thinking of you and hope for your continued healing.
  • We hope to put a smile on your face today
  • Sending a smile your way today
  • Our thoughts and encouragement are with you
  • Stay strong as you keep fighting through it.
  • You are doing a great job
  • Just wanted to say Hello and tell you I’m/we’re thinking of you
