Spreading Kindness

By now we all know that care facilities are locked down meaning no visitors or volunteers may enter. It also means that residents are confined to their rooms 24/7, including for meals. Imagine living every day with limited personal interaction and not seeing your friends, family, or friend down the hall.

When we understand that many long-term care residents do not have their own radio or TV in their room, let alone a computer or cell phone, we realize the boredom and fear of the virus or being forgotten are real issues. Those with dementia or disabilities may think they are being “punished.”

That is why we are launching our “Spreading Kindness” initiative to provide cards, letters and activities to residents in local living facilities. Residents in these facilities are used to fairly active lives and are missing their families, friends, Sr. Center lunches, church services, etc.

Won’t you considering participating as a way to keep yourself engaged in community or your children creatively occupied? Don’t be put off by perfectionism or lack of materials. The simplest note on a piece of paper will brighten someone’s day. Children might draw pictures or include a paper craft. Do not go shopping, but instead use what you have at home.

What to do?

  • Send cards and notes with encouraging messages, such as “We’re thinking of you!’ and “I hope you have a great day!”
  • Tell them a little about yourself, if you wish. Are you a farmer getting ready to plant fields, do you have a hobby or a pet, or did you take a vacation to an interesting place last year? Give them something to think about.
  • Include an activity if you can. You might print out an activity page from online sources.
  • Include a stamp and envelope if you wish. You may get a return note or make it possible for the resident to write a letter to their loved ones.

**Please DO NOT send food or candy. Many residents have special dietary needs or are diabetic.**

Where to send?

Any out-of-home living facility you know of in your area.  Address your mail to:  Any Resident – Spreading Kindness

When to send?

Now! And as this situation continues.

We thank you!

Strike Force Georgia

Remember Rosie?  Rosie traversed the country in 2016 to help Republicans win the Presidency.  Now Rosie is back on the road headed to Georgia for the June 20 special election to fill the congressional seat previously held by Rep. Tom Price, who is President Trump’s choice to head Health and Human Services.
 GOTV is vital to the effort to elect Georgia’s first Republican woman to Congress.  Karen Handle is a fiscally conservative committed to election integrity with photo ID.  She needs your help in the runoff election.  Grassroots work is what Republican Women do best!
NFRW Strike Force Weekend is June 9-11.  If you can travel to Georgia, please contact Political@NFRW.org.
Can’t travel?  No problem!  You can help from home.  Sign up at karenhandle.com to make phone calls or donate.
