Although FaceTime, Zoom and other forms of virtual communication have helped during these difficult times, sometimes it just doesn’t feel like enough. Let your friends and family know you are thinking of them by sending something personal, so they will have a piece of you with them.
SendAFriend is a stuffed animal delivery service that lets loved ones know you’re thinking of them. This is a great gift for grandparents and grandchildren, for parents to send to their kids at college or just a random gift for anyone special in your life.
To send a friend, you have to pick the perfect “friend” for your loved one. Choose from options like a lion, otter, fox, dog, hedgehog, chicken, sloth and more — they are all adorable, so it may be difficult to pick just one! Next, write a personalized message to let your loved one know you’re thinking of them.
You can also send a Bundle, which includes a friend, a pair of adult-sized socks and three different stickers.
If you don’t see your loved one’s favorite animal on the list, click on the website’s animal requests page to let them know what animal they should add and they will email you once it’s available.
When you use SendAFriend, you not only let someone know you care, you also benefit communities nationwide. Each month, SendAFriend donates 10 percent of its total sales to care facilities and pediatric hospitals around the country.
