Saturday, December 17th, 2011

I don’t know Carolyn.

But, she heard about Hope is in the Cards and sent me an email.

a little bundle of HOPE cards on their way to Carolyn in Anchorage!!

Soon, she’ll get a bundle of HOPE cards to spread the feeling! Sometimes you just have to spread it around!

One of my family members was moved to write this poem when she learned about my whole project. How cool is that?!?!?

Thank you Patsy!

Hope is in the Cards

A card of joy will bring a smile,
And leave happy imprints for a while.

A card of love to one so true,
Will always leave traces of you.

A card of sympathy, to know you care,
Will send the message that you are there.

A card of remembrance is so dear,
It keeps your family and friends very near.

A card of encouragement, when in need,
Will give hope a place, to plant a seed.

A card of regret is better than none,
Easing the guilt for what you have done.

Send a card of Hope today,
Just a little part of you,
And you may find that one day soon,
You will get one too!

Send me a note this week and I’ll send you 5 HOPE cards!

Had a great conversation on Lauren and Carmel-Ann’s awesome teleseminar! A full hour of HOPE!!

If you heard the show, you know I believe that a tiny action of Hope can have a big reward. If you hit contact on my blog between now and Sunday, December 11th, and email me your address at, I’ll send you five HOPE cards you can send to others.

Thank you all so much!!

Just when you think it doesn’t matter…

There are times when you question if your work even has the tiniest impact.

I was reminded it indeed does. A few days ago, I was on the BART from San Francisco airport to a client meeting. A person sat across from me and WHOA — they had a sticker on from the HOPE IS IN THE CARDS project!

How about that?! HOPE keeps on going!

I haven’t given out these stickers in ages — they were originally sent to retailers who participated in a promotion I dreamed up.

I had to ask, and sure enough, the guy got it from a card store who had them by the cash register.

Made my year!
