Maybe you are limited by transportation issues. Postage services aren’t limited; that is their job. So write a card. Let them deliver it.

Maybe the question you are asking, “Who should I write to?” The sick (refer to that list on the front of the bulletin); the discouraged; our Leadership; or just a random member you just want to encourage.
So? Write a card.
