I am here to ask you a favor! And, seeing as how I don’t ask you for a lot of favors (even though I always want to ask you to send me chocolate or ice cream or wine), I’m hoping you’ll take the fact that I don’t ever ask you for those things into consideration. And that it will lead you to want to do this favor for me.
It might even feel like you came up with the idea instead of me!
Jon is about to have a birthday! He is going to be 8 years old on January 30th, and his family thought it might be nice if he received a lot of birthday cards! And I want him to receive A TON OF BIRTHDAY CARDS! I’m probably going to send him eight. Or nine. Or twelve.
But that’s just me.
I’m hoping you could send him one. And then you over there could send him one. And then you there on your couch could send him one. And you reading this on your phone while you’re driving (which is dangerous so you should stop right now) could send him one, too. And then if everyone who reads this post sends him one, and I send him twenty, Jon is going to get a lot of mail.
I love mail. Especially the kind that does not look like a bill. Or is a bill. Or asks me for money. Now imagine how much kids love mail. And now imagine Jon.
I wanted to make this easy for you, too. Because I know we’re all busy and we’ve got report cards due or progress reports due or IEP paperwork due, or you have to help your own kids with their homework, or drive them here or there, or your husband keeps asking you how in the world can you watch this crap and he changes the channel and hides the remote control from you and so you have to stop everything you’re doing and go look for it. I get it. Believe me.
I made some cards for you.
All you have to do is print the card you like, cut it out, and write a quick message.
If there was any way in the world for me to address your envelope and stick a stamp on it, I would. Really. I would.
I made two sizes of cards. One size is for the long kind of rectangular envelope that you probably have on hand, and the other is for the short kind of envelope that you probably have on hand, although I didn’t have that kind on hand and I had to text several people to figure out the dimensions. And I had to text several people because no one had the short ones on hand.
What is up with that? There is nothing wrong with the short envelopes. Ahem.
The “designs” were made with super cute Melonheadz Clipart and the ones seen below are for the long envelopes.
