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.

|As easy as 1-2-3 for you!|
|Here’s what you can do:
1) Make or buy as many Valentines as you wish.
2) You may distribute them to people in a nursing/retirememnt home or give them to their staff. (Alternatively, you may send us your Valentines for distribution) Take a photo of the cards, then take them to the recipients. If at all possible, take a picture when you hand it over, or after they received it.
3) Upload your images here >>
Important, please read:
Make neutral cards, or mark for “boy” or “girl” on the envelope, if you like.
If you wish to distribute your Valentines yourself, you must respect residents’ privacy. Do not take pictures where the patients/residents are visible and recognizable. Follow the staff’s rules at all times. If you’re not sure, mail us your goodies and we’ll see to it that people get your message of love.
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.
Now accepting cards for the coming Valentine’s Project!
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.
There are people who never get any mail, leave alone a caring note for Valentine’s. You’ll earn 100 KR Points and you’ll make someone’s day! VIP Members of the Love & Peace Society™ and President Members of the Love & Peace Executives™ get 200 KR Points.
Happy Valentine’s Day to all!
