52 Weeks of Mail: Week 3 Care Package

Good Evening!  This week certainly turned out to be extra busy so I am a day behind on sharing this week’s mail.  I hope you weren’t holding your breathe waiting on me.  😉  As I shared here- Week 3 theme is a care package.  There are SO many cute ideas on Pinterest it was hard to pick a theme.  Before I could pick a theme I needed to decide who I was going to mail to.  The night I was making my plans, I learned about a family who lost their home to a fire.  This hit home for me as my family as been through this unfortunate situation before.  I instantly knew who I wanted to send my care package to.

So, I ventured to the store and collected a basket full of items I thought they may need.  What do you buy for a family that has just lost everything?  A hard shopping list to compile indeed.  I kept my eye out for practical items that might be useful in their temporary living arrangement.

I also included a handmade card and a little note for them.  While I’m sure my care package won’t fix everything, I hope it brings a smile to their face during this difficult time.  Also, a non-mail related note for my readers:  please test your smoke detectors tonight (and often).

Did anyone else send out a care package this week?  Thanks for reading!
