Random acts of card-ing

A group of us ninjas gathered in a super-secret location (OK, one of our dining rooms) this week to do some good, old-fashioned card bombing.

We came with stacks of blank cards and one (here’s the old-fashioned part) actual phone book. Over some wine and music, we wrote notes in about 150 cards. 

We paged through the phone book, selecting recipients at random and coming up with notes that were as cheerful and multi-purpose as we could muster. We hope the people who receive the cards with some Journey lyrics in them find it as hilarious as we did at the time. “Don’t stop believin'” seems to be a message that fits any season and any reason, don’t you think?

Dozens of the cards are headed for individual households across Lansing, and dozens more will be mailed in bulk to Edgewood Retirement Center and Teen Challenge, were we’ve included a note for a staffer explaining where the cards came from and asking them to please distribute them to residents.

Being away from loved ones this time of year is hard, so we’re hoping some ninja greetings will brighten their day.

If you find yourself with some leftover holiday cards this month, why not send some out into the universe to make someone smile? All it will cost you is a stamp and a moment to look up a random name and address in the phone book. Who knows? You could be providing just the bit of uplift someone out there could really use.

Happy holidays from the Lansing Ninjas!
