Thinking of You Week takes place in September every year. This event is designed to harness the emotional power of cards, to create a wave of love, caring and happiness, by encouraging everyone to send cards to different people during the week, just to say ‘hello’ share a joke, ‘thinking of you’.

Thinking of You Week encourages everyone to send cards, reminding them of the joy of receiving and sending cards. Launched in 2014 by the UK GCA Thinking of You Week has now spread to other countries such as the USA and Australia, who have their own websites, but use our branding.
