Right. So, a few times fandom has done a thing where it has sent people postcards. So many postcards. From everywhere. Fandom did this to David Hewlett in 2006 and Martin Freeman in 2012.* An amazing number of postcards were sent. [So, stealing that idea from [livejournal.com profile] slodwick:]

Let's do it to Denna Laing in 2016.

Denna Laing is a hockey player for the NWHL's** Boston Pride. On New Year's Eve at the first ever Outdoor Women's Classic she suffered a serious spinal injury.

Two of her teammates have started a thing they're calling #Cards4Denna, where they have been collecting cards for Denna. She is a fan of the cards thing, it seems.

"So we thought, what better way to show support than to gather cards from all of our fans? That way, Denna knows just how far her support system reaches and how much she means to us and all of her fans. We hope to collect as many cards as possible for Denna to keep her smiling during her road to recovery." - Kelly Cooke


I want her fucking flooded with cards, from everywhere. She's rehabbing now and I want everyone to tell her how awesome she is.

So, yeah, let's do this thing:

SEND A POSTCARD TO:

Denna Laing
c/o National Women's Hockey League
67 West Street Suite 401-C11
Brooklyn, NY 11222
United States of America


WRITE:

You are awesome.


Those words. If you want, you can also tell her why she's awesome. Yo can doodle hearts, or a tiger, or whatever. Maybe a dog. Wish her well.

DO IT:

The week of the 24th***. January 24 - 30.

MAKE SURE:

You get the postage right and the address is correct and legible.

If you're making a postcard yourself, make sure that it's the right size and you've put the address and stamp in the right place and left places that need to be blank, blank.

I'm sending this from Canada, so it's gonna cost me $1.20 CDN, which is less than a coffee around these parts. Postage varies in different countries to different countries, so check it before you send it.

If you want to help more:

There's a website and they're taking donations. (American healthcare system, what even are you?) You can also sign up for a newsletter there.


But yeah, let's cheer her the fuck on. DO IT. SEND DENNA LAING A THING. TELL HER SHE IS AWESOME. SHOW HER YOUR SUPPORT.

*David Hewlett proved to be more awesome than Martin Freeman, but that is a side tangent.
**National Women's Hockey League. This is their first season of hockey and they pay their players, which is very exciting.
***It's her Pride jersey number, and also next week.


ETA: I made a tumblr post.
