Hospital Staff and Communities Pray Over Hospitals

Medical workers join together to pray over their local hospital in Miami, Florida.

In Cartersville, Georgia, the community circled the hospital (in their vehicles) to show their support, and to pray over the healthcare workers and the patients inside. From the roof, nurses and medical staff joined the community in a display of solidarity.

Baby Born During Pandemic Receives a Roof Party

When Bryson Frye was born in Duncan, S.C., his parents were not permitted to receive visitors due to the hospital’s current coronavirus restrictions. That didn’t stop the family’s excitement over the baby’s entrance into the world, however. This past Thursday, the new parents discovered a surprise outside their hospital window: extended family and friends had taken to the parking garage roof to hold a long-distance party, complete with cheers and homemade signs to welcome the little one.

Hallmark Encourages Keeping in Touch

In a time of social distancing, we are all leaning on technology to communicate and keep in touch. But during this time, I believe we’re also being made keenly aware that there’s nothing like seeing a friend in person, talking face to face, and sitting in one another’s presence.

Hallmark Greeting Cards is making it possible for us to keep in touch in a personally handwritten sort of way.

The company is giving away 2 million cards so that you can mail a card to someone you care about.

Wow! Thanks to your amazing response, we've decided
to give away twice as many cards to help even more people reach out and put more care in the world!

Don’t have any stamps? Stick a card in your neighbor’s mailbox, or head over to the USPS Store and purchase a few.

Thank you, Hallmark, for helping us all spread some hope.

Math Teacher Teaches from Student’s Doorstep

When a middle school student just couldn’t seem to grasp her math lesson during the pandemic quarantine, she emailed her teacher for help. Being a teacher accustomed to teaching face to face, math teacher, Chris Waba, figured there was still a way to help his student “in real life.” With marker and whiteboard in hand, the teacher rang Rylee Anderson’s doorbell (a rare sound for most people in the United States these days). Teacher and student shared a personalized math lesson through a glass door.

Now that’s a TEACHER.
