Day 2 - what does the #justacard message mean to me? I love that this initiative aims to support independent retailers because they bring so much more to our communities than just a great range of products. It’s the smile & conversation you get with your purchase or visit. They bring diversity to the streets of our towns, villages & cities. They contribute to the character of a place don’t they? & when that’s done with creativity & passion it can benefit the whole community. They attract customers to an area, who might spend some money in other local businesses. I appreciate all of this. It’s about human-ness, something that helps all us humans thrive! Connection, expression, creativity, diversity - love! Yes. It’s something quite close to my heart. Amen.
