Help write notes

INSTRUCTIONS

We're always in need of handwritten notes in Chinese, Korean, Japanese, or Tagolog with English translation to attach to our care packages. The goal is to let our elderly recipients feel the joy from your decorations and brighten their day with our deliveries. For illustration inspiration, take a look at the Notes highlight on our Instagram.​​

Instructions

  • Volunteers supply their own materials and supplies to create the handwritten notes. 

  • Dimensions of the notes should stay within/around 7" x 5".

  • Write legibly, clearly, with large characters/letters in black/dark ink. 

  • Add variation to your positive and uplifting messages each time you volunteer. Email notesandbags@heartofdinner.com for assistance.

  • Don't read/write Chinese or Korean? We encourage Google Translate or feel free to email notesandbags@heartofdinner.com for easy-to-write characters.

  • Write in batches of 50 notes (50 notes, 100 notes, 150 notes, 200 notes, 250 notes, etc.) Please use rubber bands or sheets of paper to batch each set of 50 notes.
