When we announced Part & Parcel’s social mission last spring, we couldn't wait to start spreading even more happiness into the world. Little did we know how excited you all would be too! We've sent handwritten notes to women newly diagnosed with breast cancer through the extraordinary organization Girls Love Mail. We've written cards to seniors who need a little extra support or sense of companionship.
Now, we're excited to announce next quarter's partnership: A Million Thanks!
And this one has an incredible story behind it. When Shauna Fleming was 15 years old, she began a community service project with the goal of sending one million cards and letters of appreciation to U.S. military serving around the world. The local project turned into a national cause and within six months, she reached the initial goal of one million letters.
Today, A Million Thanks has sent more than seven million letters U.S. troops stationed around the world.
For every new Part & Parcel subscription purchased this October through December, we’ll send a handwritten card to a U.S. military member. A Million Thanks will help facilitate the delivery, making sure each letter gets into the hands of someone who could use that special pick-me-up that a handwritten card provides.
Prefer to send your own note? We’ll include a pre-addressed, pre-stamped card in your monthly subscription delivery to make it easy. Don’t have time? No biggie – we’ll happily write a note on your behalf.
We’re thrilled to be working with A Million Thanks to send a little more happiness to those who serve, and we hope you’ll join us in supporting this wonderful organization.
