As the Covid-19 virus is keeping most of us indoors, we try to keep our most vulnerable safe as well. For these most vulnerable, especially in nursing homes, this most likely will mean little to no visitations for the next few months. Loneliness and depression among the elderly is already extremely common, and the restricted visitations won’t help. Handwritten letters will alleviate the sense of loneliness and isolation, and calligraphy is bound to make anyone feel extra special. Which is why I am putting together these letter kits, so you can brighten a loved ones day with thoughtful calligraphy and a personal note!
Each letter kit contains:
- A high grade, colored A7 envelope (colors at CalliRosa’s discretion), addressed in calligraphy with your loved one’s address, and a return address label on the flap, to make it easy for them to write you back.
- A 4.75×6.75″ flat, deckled edged card, with your loved one’s name in custom calligraphy at the top to start off your love note (ink color matching envelope). Write an encouragement, or share how much you appreciate them!
- Postage for the letter and shipping is included for your convenience. Local pickup is possible.
