During this time of anxiety and uncertainty, I wanted to reach out to say we are thinking of you. As we navigate the current health crisis together, I also wanted to let you know that our company continues to prioritize the safety and well-being of our team members, their families and our customers.
We value the role we play in helping you express, connect and celebrate with the important people in your life. In this unprecedented moment, being connected with each other is more important than ever. While we may be practicing social distancing, staying healthy means not falling into an unhealthy pattern of social isolation. Taking care of our emotional well-being, prioritizing self-care and staying engaged with the important people in your life are among the most critical things we can do right now.
Whether you are telecommuting, taking care of children home from school, enduring quarantine, or simply being cautious, here are just a few ways you might consider connecting with friends, family, co-workers and others in the days and weeks ahead:
Video chat versus texting - seeing your face will bring a big smile
Send a complimentary e-card - “Just saying ‘hi’”
Make a list of 10 people you’ve been meaning to call – and do it
Call a neighbor or distant relative, just to see how they are doing
Write a hand-written letter to an old friend
Now is a time to think of each other, to connect with each other and to care for each other. We just want you to know that we care about you and your continued well-being, and that all of us at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, Inc. are thinking of you.
