Free card packs help people send paper hugs to those who need it most

KANSAS CITY, Mo., March 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Hallmark Cards, Inc. announced today that it is doubling its one million card giveaway to two million cards after an overwhelmingly enthusiastic response from people who want to put more care into the world.

"We are inspired by how many people are using these cards to spread encouragement, love and gratitude around the country." 

Anyone in the continental U.S. can go to Hallmark.com/CareEnough and sign-up to receive a free three-card pack, while supplies last. No purchase necessary. Kindness and intent to put more caring in the world is all you need to participate.
