    TSR's Rainbow Cards Collection

    Write a message for the cause, and we'll send it for you!

    :party:


    As part of Pride Month here on TSR, we're running a collection of messages for The Rainbow Cards Project. They're a fantastic charity that sends birthday and holiday cards to LGBT+ people who have been disowned by their family, as a way of tackling isolation and loneliness within the community. They run on donations and from cards people write and send in, which they then send on to those who sign up for its services.

    So how can you get involved? To get involved in the TSR collection, all you have to do is write a message to either a general recipient, or a named one, and post it in this thread. We'll write the messages up in a card for you, and send it on to The Rainbow Cards Project, who will send it on to it's final destination... that means you can write as many messages as you want, without having to worry about buying cards, or paying for postage! :woo:

    If you're writing for a general recipient, start the message with something like 'Hi there' rather than leaving it blank. If you're writing to a named recipient, you can get their first name and their interests from the Rainbow Cards website, and tailor the message to them. For more information and ideas, check out their Writing Guide.

    For an additional bonus challenge for this collection, we'll be offering a reputation point prize for whoever submits the most messages to this thread! Each message has to be different, and they must all be appropriate and positive to count towards your total. The person with the highest total at the end of the month will win the reputation point prize! :woo:

    Unable to write any messages, but still want to support the cause? The Rainbow Cards Project is still in it's early stages, so if you're able to promote it on Twitter or Facebook, that's a great help too! If you're able to donate, you can also do so here

    Would anyone else like to post some messages for this? It doesn't have to be a long message, even a "Happy birthday, have a great day!" style one is great and would be gladly received by people

    ALEX

    Dear Alex,

    I just wanted to drop you a note to wish you a very Happy Birthday! I know from my own experience that birthdays can sometimes be painful and involve difficult or conflicting feelings. But I hope that - wherever you are and however you may or may not be marking this special day – you know you are wonderful, special and valued, and that there are people across the world thinking of you! I cross my fingers that there will be a big rainbow across the sky on your birthday. Take care and Happy Birthday again!

    Shan (London, UK)



    GABRIELLE

    Dear Gabrielle,

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Although you cannot hear it from where you are, I am singing the ‘Happy Birthday’ song to you whilst writing this message! I am probably not as good a singer as you, but I love music too. Plus it’s the thought that counts, right?!

    I hope that wherever you are, there is a piano there so someone else can play the ‘Happy Birthday’ song to you. Or perhaps strum it on a ukulele instead! If I were there with you, I would play you ‘Happy Birthday’ on the piano and violin (afraid I’ve no ukulele skills at all!).

    I hope you have a lovely day – know that there are people across the world thinking of you.

    Take care,

    Shan (London, UK)




    CLAIRE


    Dear Claire,

    I just wanted to write and wish you a very Happy Birthday, from one ballet fan to another! I used to learn ballet from ages 4-11 but had no talent for it. I still enjoy watching ballets though at the Royal Opera House in London, which is not too far from me. My favourite ballet production is Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake, which I saw at Sadlers Wells Theatre (also in London). I hope if you haven’t already seen it, that you get to one day – it’s incredible!

    I’ll be thinking of you in early August around your birthday time. I hope you have a great day!

    Take care,

    Shan (London, UK)




    Maëlys


    Dear Maëlys,

    Happy Birthday! I hope that you are able to celebrate today, and that you know many people are thinking of you. If you see a beautiful sunset on your birthday, followed by a clear starry night, know that it is there because I (and surely many other people across the world too) have wished that for you, as a sign of our affection for and solidarity with you.

    Hope you have a lovely day! Take care,

    Shan (London, UK)

    Dear Gabrielle,

    Happy Birthday! I hope you have a great day full of loads of presents! From one ukulele and piano player to another :> Make sure to blast or play your favourite songs on your birthday so that the whole world can celebrate along with you!

    You are valid and loved by all LGBT+ members.

    All the best,

    Maryam:

    Dear Maryam,

    I'd like to wish you a grand birthday! I hope your day goes well with all your wishes coming true :> Like the Pillars of creation in the Eagle Nebula, you are ethreal, unique and appreciated!

    Did you know in August there should be a partial solar eclipse! Now that's what I call a celestial gift. Hopefully, you'll be able to view it, I've only seen one partial eclipse in my life, but honestly it was spectacular and worth it.

    Always remember, you are valid and loved <3

    Best Wishes,
    Teddie(UK)

    Dear Kylee,

    I am just writing to wish you a happy birthday! I hope the day goes well with cake and loads of anime and overwatch merch! I love anime too, so I know how good of a feeling it is to get some merch from your favourite series

    You are an absolute star, amongst many others who love and appreciate you!

    Take care and I wish you the best,
