Everyone deserves
A Bright Spot in the day!

Who doesn’t like surprise mail? A Bright Spot sends uplifting messages to anyone who could use a kind letter, note, or card.

Simple as that. 

We aim to make others feel seen, heard, appreciated, supported, and loved.
We do this through supportive cards and notes. Who doesn’t like a surprise “Bright Spot in their day?”

We send free cards to individuals, caregivers, hospitalized children and seniors,
deployed service members, or anyone who needs a reminder that they are loved and appreciated.

What people are saying about us …

A Bright Spot gave my daughter an opportunity to serve her community. Even though she is little, she is very mighty and is eager to get involved in community service.

With love, a proud Mama from Ashburn.
