Etsy! Once again, Etsy decided to share the love with a project they're calling Special Delivery. This Valentine's Day, Etsy is again teaming up with Citymeals-on-Wheels to bring nutritious meals, handmade greeting cards and companionship to thousands of home bound elderly New Yorkers.
Want to be involved? Great, we need your help to supply the cards. Citymeals-on-Wheels serves over 18,000 people, so we need as many as we can get. There are two ways to do this. The first is to make your own card and fill it out with a nice message. See Etsy's post HERE for more info.)
Mail it to:
Attn: Katie Rose Crosswhite
55 Washington St.
Brooklyn, NY 11201
And second, if you don't have time to make cards, or you live far, far away and think your cards won't make it to New York in time for the Tuesday, February 7, 2012 deadline, you can buy them from me HERE and I will ship them for no charge! (I'm in New Jersey.) The deadline for Etsy to receive the cards is Tuesday, February 7, 2012. I will have this listing till Thursday, February 2, 2012. Please note the owls may vary slightly(in color) than what's shown.
Etsy buyers, with your purchase of these Valentines, I will include a note with your Etsy Username and ID# so that YOU (not me, although I'm sending in my own Valentines) will be credited with sending in the cards you purchase here.
Then comes Special Delivery! Etsy collects all the cards and brings them to Citymeals-on-Wheels, where each will be delivered along with a meal on Valentine's Day. Several of the Etsy admin will be volunteering that day tromping around the city with hot meals and friendly conversation to brighten the day of local seniors.
Let's put a smile on someone's face this Valentine's Day!
Thank you to those who participated in Etsy's Special Delivery for Citymeals on Wheels in NY in 2009, 2010 & 2011!! xoxo
