⠀ Be always blooming.⠀ ⠀ Sprinkle Kindness!⠀ ⠀ We started the sprinkle kindness notes campaign Friday….and we are ready to begin filling the bin!⠀ ⠀ If you have notes to drop off in the bin to help sprinkle kindness to those that are feeling isolated and alone in nursing homes and other facilities, we have a bin at the front door – you can simply drive around the circle and drop off. ⠀ Leave the heavy lifting to us….just drop your notes (local CT people) or send them to us and we will bundle and send out.⠀ ⠀ *we are taking every precaution necessary before sending the notes to nursing homes. They may remain in quarantine at the facilities until this virus passes, and then receive the notes. The facilities will follow the proper protocols. ⠀ DM me or @taxler14 for address to send notes or to drop off! ⠀ ⠀ #sprinklekindness #compassionateridgefield #flattenthecurve
