Hallmark has a neat program called, Get Carded Challenge to help bloggers connect with loved ones. Now while the Challenge is specifically for bloggers, we wouldn’t want to leave you, the Review Wire Readers, left empty handed! You can enter below to win your very own Get Carded Prize Pack!


About The Challenge

  • Send 7 cards in 7 days to 7 special people in your life. Tell them how much they mean, how much you miss them, how you’ll never forget that time…

Challenge Accepted!

I received an assortment of cards from Hallmark of which I was able to use all but two. I sent out 7 cards to family and friends and the kids were excited when some of them even wrote back! When was the last time you penned a handwritten note to a family or friend? Every time my kids receive a gift I make them sit down and write a personalized thank you letter to the gift giver and I always send them out within one week.

Get Carded Challenge

Etiquette requires you to send a thank-you note in the following situations:

  • Wedding gifts
  • Bridal shower and baby shower gifts
  • Holiday, birthday, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, graduation, and housewarming gifts
  • Sympathy letters, flowers, mass cards, or donations made in the deceased’s name

I also write my son who lives in South Carolina, I live in MO. I want these people to know that someone cares about them. I last wrote on Sunday night. September 15th.

    Since my mother – who wrote great letters and corresponded regularly with a long list of people she hadn’t seen in years – passed away, I gradually degraded to phoning and eventually to posting Happy Birthdays on Facebook rather than writing. The last time I hand wrote a card was probably six years ago when I wrote thank you letters to people who sent condolences on the death of my husband.

    I know I’ve done it since then, but the main letters I remember writing were 6-7 years ago when my Granddaddy would write me at camp when I worked there during my college summers and I’d write back. I hope it hasn’t been than long ago but those are the last I remember. Those are so special to me now that he’s gone, his wisdom, prayers and love poured out on the page. I’d like to get back to those days.
