Care packages can send love, support, and joy in a box! Giving care packages and sending correspondence to loved ones who live near and far can help maintain relationships and make us feel closer to one another.
Join us as we send our love across the state and the country and earn the Care Package & Correspondence Badge. The Care Package & Correspondence Badge taught us tips and tricks for sending thoughtful packages and showed us the history of C.A.R.E. packages and the role they played in post-war Europe.
In our next couple of posts we share tips for organizing important dates, remembering to reach out to friends, and selecting items to include in a care package. We interview a fellow blogger and Etsy store owner who specializes in care packages, and pack and send our own care packages. Head over to our Instagram or Facebook to read some quick correspondence tips and be sure to follow our blog posts for more in depth reporting on our experience earning the Care Package & Correspondence Badge.
