Norma’s Valentine Project

 

Here is Norma – always happy, always ready to do some good.

2019 was the Inaugural Year for this lovely Project

It was a spontaneous idea, born out of a sweet story from a childhood experience. Norma Shearon, the initiator (if not instigator) of Norma’s Valentine Project, had wanted to continue with a tradition that was started by her Mom.

Her mother would take Norma to go see people in nursing homes and bring home made Valentine cards to make them feel special. Mostly, they wanted to search out those who had little contact with family or were alone altogether.

So her idea of bringing love into the lonely rooms of the elderly and infirm was brought to life. That was on January 31, 2019, with only two weeks to plan, organize and get everything ready.

It was a no-brainer to ask social media friends for help, and it didn’t take long for people to respond.

Morgan Root was first to respond with a stack of hand written cards. And they were so much appreciated by all who received them.

But we could always use more.

If you wish to mail us Valentines, you may participate during any time of the year, as often as you like. For each batch you’re sending to us or distribute yourself, you get awarded KR Points.

The loving family of Sandra Dominguez was one of the first to participate as well. And how wonderful of an idea it was, to include the Teddy bears and light-up roses.

Sandra stocked up nicely with light-up roses and Teddy bears.

Only after we encountered a blind man, did we realize how precious such a Teddy bear would be. Since he couldn’t read the card, he was able to feel the soft plush and enjoy that sensory experience.

There are people who never get any mail, leave alone a caring note for Valentine’s.

Sooo… if you have an extra card or two lying around, perhaps you can write a nice greeting inside it and we would be glad to keep them ’til we go and take them to a home with less fortunate elderly residents.
