We know the holidays are a busy time for families. However, for many homebound seniors, they’re often forgotten or unable to celebrate the holidays the way they used to. Consider taking time away from the hustle and bustle and send a nice holiday card to a senior in your life.

If you don’t have a senior in your life, but you still want to spread holiday cheer, consider joining the  Ready to Care® Pen Pal program.

Just visit https://www.readytocare.com/take-action/pen-pal/. Then, write your letter, let us know if you’d like to receive a letter back, and it’s ready to send! No stamps or envelopes needed.

Merry Christmas how are u doing?!? As fore me l am excited to have a new friend that I would love to talk to. They were lighting our tree and all of a sudden I had a memory come up when I was younger I get excited about the Christmas lights and decorations. It brings out lots of fun, laughter. At night it’s so quiet calm to sit and talk about the decorations and icicles. My GOD, is good. Always, always Amen

Yesterday I told my 15 year old niece about this caring mission. She is shy. She liked the idea and immediately spoke to a senior lady in Walmart and told her to have a nice day. So proud of her!
Danelle is the best girl!

I am writing a Christmas card today to Shelba Franklin. She was a wonderful caretaker for my father for many years. We all loved her and loved to sit around the kitchen table and drink coffee and gossip.
