VISIONS invites you and your family to join Aoife and Nuala in sending Valentine's Day cards to older adults with visual impairments living in Staten Island! 

Here's all you have to do:

Icon of colorful papers

STEP 1

Grab some of your favorite construction paper.

Icon of a folded heart

STEP 2

Fold your card in half, or, cut out a heart shape.

Icon of a pen

STEP 3

Write your message in BIG, BOLD print for easy reading.

Icon of a sparkly jar of glitter

STEP 4

Decorate your card with stickers, glitter, and/or paper doilies.

Icon of text reading "Your name here"

STEP 5

Sign your name along with your age, and send it to us.

When writing your message, you can simply say “Happy Valentine’s Day,” write a poem, or send another personal greeting. Remember, many older adults experience vision loss as they age. The bigger and clearer you write, the more likely they can enjoy your message.
