About The Event

Are you a school principal, owner of a company, pastor of a church, aspiring eagle scout, college applicant looking to boost the resume, or simply someone looking for a way to give back? You have come to the right place! This Valentine's Day, our goal is to deliver 10,000 Valentine's cards to disabled vets, active duty military stationed overseas, children who are currently hospitalized, and homeless people living in Washington, DC. Organize your own card-writing initiative among our family, friends, classmates, work colleagues, etc. to help us meet our goal of 10,000 Valentine's! Register below to help us out!!

Event Details:

Valentine's Cards: You and your team have control over your card making process. The cards can be made from scratch or bought at the store. Please include a handwritten note that you feel would be appropriate for the group that you are writing to. Ideally, something inspiring and uplifting works great. Feel free to also include drawings, especially from kids.

Sorting: Please make sure to sort all of your cards in appropriate groups: i.e. disabled vets cards in one group, active duty military in another group.

Sealing Envelopes: Please do not seal the envelopes, as we will be reviewing all of them to ensure that they are appropriate and sorted correctly.

Delivery: Please send all cards to "Barbera Foundation" PO Box 2293 Reston, VA 20195

Deadline: Please have your cards in the mail by 2/5.

Spread the word: The success of this event is contingent on volunteer participation. Please spread the word to friends and family who you think would be interested in helping out. Please follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn as well (links at bottom of website)! We can't do this without you!!

Number of cards: Whether it is 1 card or 1,000, the quantity of cards you contribute is completely up to you. Every card counts!

Note: We have received many cards for hospitalized children, and are in need of cards for disabled vets, active duty military, and the homeless.

Thanks again, and please let me know if you have any questions,

------------------------------

Valentine's Day is right around the corner and this year our goal is to deliver 10,000 handwritten Valentine's cards to disabled vets, active duty military stationed overseas, and sick children at local children's hospitals.

Imagine if you were fighting to defend the US in a foreign country and received an uplifting handwritten note expressing gratitude for your service. Or if you were recovering from an injury at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and received an inspirational note thanking you for your sacrifice and inspiring you to continue pushing forward to recovery. Or if you were a child suffering from cancer and you received a Valentine's card from a total stranger who was sending their prayers, love, and support your way.

A simple handwritten note can make a huge impact on someone's life and help them through a very difficult time.
