Carpe Diem. Live for the day. Seize the moment.
Life is made up of a collection of moments that, whether happy or sad, come together to create the here and now... that go by extremely quickly. We've all been in the situation where we wish we would have told someone in our life what we were feeling or that we cared about them or just said hi, but we missed the chance.
Thanks to Hallmark, the company that has always focused on relationships and the emotional connections their products and experiences represent, we now have even more of a reason to tell those close to us how we feel thanks to their Tell Them greetings program.
With a focus on "vowing to tell" the ones close to you what they need to hear to make them feel special, Tell Them is all about letting the people you care about know exactly what they mean to you. Whether that is typically an easy thing for you to do or something that you struggle with, Hallmark can help you share your voice, your thoughts, and your feelings.
The Tell Them vow itself is easy: simply visit Hallmark's new Tell Them Facebook page and "vow to tell" someone in your life what you think he/she should hear. You already have someone in mind, don't you? What will you tell them?
Tell Them you miss them?
Tell Them you need them?
Tell Them they're still the one?
Tell Them they're your superhero?
Tell Them you love them?
I love the way that Hallmark is introducing Tell Them to the world (keep an eye out for this commercial to appear on your television soon!) and, even though this video makes me tear up, I just have to keep watching it!
I'm not the only sappy one who is reaching for a tissue right now, am I?
When it comes to turning your "vow to tell" into a reality, Hallmark's greeting cards are a wonderful way to do just that... and, with Valentine's Day right around the corner, there's no better time than now to pick out the perfect card to send to someone you've been longing to reconnect with, who you think needs to hear a supportive voice or who you treasure with all your heart.
I'm continually amazed with the innovation and creativity that goes into Hallmark's cards and their collection of Valentine's Day cards are no exception. From simple and sweet to extravagant and humorous (to pretty much everything in between), they are sure to have just what you're looking for to get your message across.
And, if you're like me and you've ever wondered about the artistic minds that come up with the intricate designs...
...or the cool sounds of Hallmark's cards...
...then you've got to check out the answer straight from Hallmark Card Writer Cat Skorupski! I had the opportunity to send over a few questions to Cat and she was great enough to send over a video response answering how greeting cards have changed over the years!
(P.S. ever wondered how to pronounce my name? Cat has it down perfectly!)
Through thick and thin, the good times and the bad, it's important to know that life is a special occasion, and Hallmark can help drive the emotional connections that make all your relationships meaningful. Instead of keeping your feelings bottled up, share them! Now is the time to Tell Them and let the people we care about know it - head over to Tell Them and vow to do it, too!
And, thanks to the generosity of Hallmark, one person will be able to do just that in style, because...
