Hallmark Cards is donating two million free greeting cards to encourage people to send to friends, family and others who now, more than ever, need to feel loved and supported. The company had planned to give away one million cards but doubled the number because of the strong response.
Anyone in the continental United States can go to Hallmark.com/CareEnough and sign up to receive a free three-card pack while supplies last.
“Hallmark has been in the business of caring for more than 100 years, so lending a hand to help others connect is part of our DNA,” said Lindsey Roy, CMO of Hallmark. “During a time of unprecedented social distancing, we hope these cards will be shared across neighborhoods, towns and the country to help lift spirits.”
For more than 100 years, family-owned Hallmark Cards, Inc. has been dedicated to creating a more emotionally connected world. Based in Kansas City and employing 30,000 worldwide, the approximately $4 billion company operates a diversified portfolio of businesses. Its global Hallmark Greetings business sells greeting cards, gift wrap and related products in more than 30 languages with distribution in more than 100 countries and 100,000 rooftops worldwide.
How a greeting card is born:
