Woman-owned Company Launches 'AffirMAILtions' Service To Foster Connection In The Midst Of Social Distancing
Founder Shannon Cohen [Shannon Cohen, Inc] is repurposing her Tough Skin, Soft Heart line of greeting cards to launch a custom service that enables clients to celebrate, connect with, and extend support to those they care about without violating shelter-in-place protocol. Her new "AffirMAILtions" service seeks to close the human connection gap in this season of social distancing.
"Even in pandemic, human beings still have an innate desire to connect," says Cohen. "We want to celebrate birthdays, support friends in the loss of loved ones, and uplift colleagues and community health workers in this time of crisis. We may be shut-in, but expressing love, care, and concern is never locked out."
"Words heal," says Cohen. "Words allow us to touch the heart and soul of others. The realities of COVID-19 make physical distance necessary, but we can still nurture social connection and interpersonal touch through greeting cards."
