Thank you to our joy creator community for the cards you continue to make with care and kindness. You have spread joy 12,000+ times to vulnerable older adults!
Join us to spread joy and reduce loneliness year-round with special emphasis on Valentine's Day & the December holiday season.
People ages 3-93 are hand-creating greeting cards that we deliver to local older adult living communities.
As a community, we are bringing joy to isolated older adults, mitigating their feelings of loneliness, and letting them know that someone is thinking of them.
We accept general cheer, Valentine's Day and holiday cards year-round. We know that Valentine's Day and the December holiday season can be an especially difficult for older adults. We ask you to strongly consider making cards for these holidays if you can. We will save them for delivery during those times.
For ease of distribution of December holiday cards, we accept 'Happy Holidays' and 'Season's Greetings' cards (as opposed to cards reflecting holidays celebrated by specific faiths).
We have delivered cards to:
If you are employed at a central Connecticut adult living community or senior center and would like the opportunity to receive cards to distribute to older adults, please contact us using the form below.

Anyone interested is welcome to make cards at home (if including envelopes, please leave them unsealed), place them together in a larger envelope, and mail them to us at: For All Ages, P.O. Box 61, Simsbury CT 06070.
If you are local to Simsbury, CT, you may drop your cards into the bin outside the lower level of the Simsbury Public Library.
We will ensure that they are delivered to older adult residents in central Connecticut.
After receiving your information, we'll contact you to discuss receiving cards.
