CaringBridge & Hallmark Cards -“Caring Messages” card contest #MC #sponsored

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

If you are a caregiver or know someone who is one, you know how much time, energy and love goes in taking care of another.   When I was a child, my grandmother moved in with us and while it was great to have grandma living with us, we all had to pitch in and help take care of her.   Not too long after she moved in, she was diagnosed with lung cancer.  As a family we all pitched in and made sure grandma was well taken care of until her last day with us.  If there would of internet and CaringBridge back in the day, it would of been a great way for family far away to stay in touch and up to date on grandma's health.

To celebrate and support caregivers, the strong personal heroes who tirelessly help families get through one day at a time when experiencing a hardship, CaringBridge, the nonprofit caring social network, and Hallmark Cards are kicking off the “Caring Messages” card contest during National Family Caregiver Month.

From now through November 17th, the “Caring Messages” card contest is going on.  It 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

  • 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 them on. 
  • 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.
Winners will be announced in February.  They will receive a cash prize, and their entry will be sold at with in-store sale to be determined.
