Send a card!

Due to the Corona virus outbreak a lot of elderly care homes took the difficult decision not to accept outside visitors anymore. Many elderly in The Netherlands already feel lonely quite often. Due to the lack of visitors because of the virus this issue will become more pressing. In order to help out and give some much needed extra attention you can send a postcard to the elderly care homes. This way you can let a person know someone is thinking about them in these strange times. A card with a positive message can mean a lot to many people. Should you like to you could even send a long a nice poem, or a magazine.
