Come join our Christmas in July Holiday Card Swap!

 

YIPPEE! IT’S HERE!! Our Inaugural Christmas in July event! This FREE card swap is open to ALL chronic warriors. Since 2020 has been riddled with angst, isolation and upheaval, NOW is the perfect time to come send a card of holiday hope & cheer to a fellow warrior. Plus, it gives our warriors in the southern hemisphere a chance to celebrate Christmas in winter! ❄️🎄⛄️

Our card swaps are usually via snail mail. However, if postal service is interrupted in your country, you may chose to send a digital email card instead of a snail mail card during this disruption of service

Register before June 30th. The Card Swap officially kicks off on July 1st. (Be sure to read your confirmation email for all the details plus a printable card.)

What is the Chronic Warrior Card Swap?

So glad you asked! The Card Swap is a FREE monthly event where chronic warriors  send “snail mail” messages of hope and encouragement to one another. Warriors gets matched with two unique connections each month- one to send TO and one to receive FROM. To date, we’ve had participants from 21 countries. What are you waiting for?  Sign up today – the next card swap starts on the 1st!
