Just 1 Card To Say Happy Birthday… December 12, 2011 – Posted by crosby2126
I have a Aunt who is deaf and lives alone. To communicate with her when we visit we write in her notebook. Her birthday is in March.

Last year she was 96 years old. I thought about things I could get her but aside from food there isn’t much she needs. So, I decided to I send emails out to a few friends. I told everyone about my Aunt and asked them if they could please take a few minutes and help celebrate her birthday by sending a card to her.

Little did I know how this one request would impact so many, especially my Aunt! My friends asked their own friends to join in. The cards started arriving every day for a month!! My Aunt was so excited! She couldn’t believe so many people were thinking about her. She recieved over 50 cards!

Something so little, that takes just a few minutes to do, ment the world to her. Many peoples lives have been touched by this gesture, not only my Aunt’s. A card really does say it all. Here we are approaching March… her birthday is here … I can’t wait to send out that email….My Aunt is going to be 97 on March 13th.
