Thank you to our joy creator community for the cards you continue to make with care and kindness. You have spread joy nearly 13,000 times!
Join us to spread joy and reduce loneliness this holiday season.
People ages 3-93 are hand-creating greeting cards! As a community, we are bringing comfort and joy to those who need it the most, mitigating their feelings of loneliness and letting them know that someone is thinking of them.
We're focused on the most vulnerable among us - assisted living and memory care patients, hospitalized patients, low income isolated adults aging in place at home, and veterans.
We accept holiday and Valentine's Day cards year-round. We know that Valentine's Day and the December holiday season can be an especially difficult time for so many. We ask you to focus on making cards for these holidays. 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).
If you are employed at a central Connecticut hospital or assisted living/memory care community or are associated with a veterans' group or Meals on Wheels delivery organization and would like the opportunity to receive cards to distribute, please contact us using the form below.
We invite everyone, regardless of where you live, to participate in making Joyful Notes. 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.
