The Easiest Way to Send a Valentine to a Child in the Hospital

Trending Now


No matter your feelings for Feb. 14, most everyone can agree they love receiving a sweet Valentine’s Day card. This year, in addition to sharing the love with family and friends, why not make some Valentine’s Cards for kids in the hospital?

In honor of the big day, children’s hospitals all over the country are holding Valentine Drives where anyone can send a free digital valentine to a patient. Each hospital has their own designs––many of which are designed by patients––and are such an easy way to brighten up a patient’s day!

Sending a valentine is easy: all you need to do is use your desktop computer, phone or tablet to access the hospital’s page. Then just fill out the e-card with your info and a sweet message before pressing send. Some hospitals even have pre-written messages if you’re at a loss for words to make the process even more simple.

Now that’s sharing the love!
