Love For Our Elders


2020 has been tough on us all, but one group in particular has been left extremely vulnerable this holiday season. Tens of thousands of seniors will be isolated and have no visitors due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the restrictions may be put in place to help stop the spread and keep them safe, it also means they will suffer in other ways.  Many will not be able to see family and/or friends to experience that form of connection like they’re used to which could lead to a lot of confusion. However still have an opportunity to make their holiday season a little brighter!


Love For Our Elders is a global nonprofit founded by Jacob Cramer collecting handwritten letters for isolated elders amid the pandemic and beyond. 


“Take a few minutes, sit down, and write a letter to an elder (a stranger). Tell them about yourself, maybe say a joke or a riddle and let them know that they are loved.


It might feel difficult at first to be writing to someone you don’t know. Our advice: just pretend like it’s a conversation! What kinds of things would you want to talk about to a stranger?”

At Notions we decided to make this a part of our virtual holiday party. We put some kits together with all the supplies needed to create their own versions of a Christmas card. Here are some of the outcomes which might spark some inspiration on your end and help you get started on a letter today!


 

Message included inside: 


2020- the year we left the caroling to the snowmen!


Hope you are having a safe, cozy Christmas.


Sending Love,

Message included inside: 


The pandemic outside 

is frightful


But staying inside 

is so delightful


And because we have 

no place to go


Let it snow

Let it snow

Let it snow 


Wishing you a healthy and happy Holiday Season! -Tessa 


Here are a few more from our Notions family!










We wanted to shed some light on this amazing idea that could put a smile on someone’s face and be the reason they stay motivated during these scary times. Christmas is around the corner so whether it’s through this specific program or simply making a card and throwing it in your neighbors’ mailbox who might be feeling lonely this Christmas/New Year’s, showing them you care goes such a long way. 


From all of us here at Notions, wishing everyone a safe and healthy Holiday Season!
