Merry Mail Social 2017

Oh what fun it is to craft a card and send a smile!

Thank you to all who attended the second annual Merry Mail Social hosted by Bates Creative on November 15th! We spent the night celebrating the start of the holidays by handcrafting holiday cards for Operation Gratitude, Cards for Hospitalized Kids and Sunrise Senior Living.

Colleagues, friends, family and more gathered around to embrace what the season means: Sharing joy for all.

During its first year in 2016, nearly 75 members of the community decorated, glued, wrote and personalized 120 one-of-a-kind holiday cards for our three organizations. With great support from the DC community, the second annual Merry Mail Social welcomed nearly 100 attendees to handcraft 193 holiday cards!

Because even though nearly two billion holiday cards were sent in 2016, no two cards crafted at The Merry Mail Social were the same. We hope to see everyone again next year!
