It’s Here: A Personal Touch’s Resolutions Contest!


New Years Blog1 Its Here: A Personal Touchs Resolutions Contest!Did you know that one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions that people select is to spend more time with family and friends?

We love the idea of making time to better keep in touch with loved ones but know that it’s not always easy when you have a busy schedule and family or friends who live far away.

While email and text messages have helped to keep long distance friends or family members in touch with each other, we think they lack somewhat of A Personal Touch. Which is why we’d like to challenge our readers too add a personal touch to their resolution and to make time to stay in touch with family and friends by using hand-written letters!

We love the warm and fuzzy feeling you get from receiving a hand-written note, knowing that your loved one was thinking of you. The act of hand-writing a letter is becoming rare and we’d like to do something about that, so would like to challenge you with the “2012 Resolutions with A Personal Touch Contest!”

All you need to do is send an email with the subject line “Resolutions Contest” to before midnight Wednesday, January 25th with the following information:

  • The name and relation of the person you would like to keep in touch with more often in 2012.
  • A brief sentence or two as to why this person is so important to you and why you’d like to keep better in touch with them.
  • Your full name and email address that you’d like to be contacted at if you are selected as the winner.

The contest winner, who will be selected by the A Personal Touch staff, will win their very own set of Personally Yours© Personalized Note Cards & Envelopes that will help them get started with their resolution! The staff will be looking for the most touching entry and we will announce the winner in a post Thursday, January 26th so be sure to get your entry in before then!

We can’t wait to hear all about your loved ones and how you plan to send them love with A Personal Touch one letter at a time!

Good luck!
