Here are four convenient ways to show someone you care, no matter where they are.
Just because you may be geographically separated from your loved ones doesn't mean you can't reach out to them. While we're all staying home, there are plenty of ways to stay in touch.
Can you hear me now?
Forget the phone calls; video meetings are where it's at. You can use a free platform like Zoom, Skype, or Facetime, just to name a few. Get the whole family in on it and catch up with all the cousins and kids.

Have you eaten yet?
Nationwide delivery services like Instacart make it easy for you to send groceries to just about anyone. Simply open an account, put in their address, and shop the virtual aisles of a grocery store near the recipient.
If you've got elderly family members who can't make it out to the store themselves, this is the perfect gift. The best part is, you can watch the driver online and see as the delivery is made in real time on a map!

If you've got Amazon Prime, you can even try using Amazon Fresh for grocery delivery in certain areas. Mrs. Fields is also still shipping if you'd prefer to send dessert. You don't have to go to the mall to get their amazing cookies!
Shop 'til you drop.

Start a virtual book club.
With platforms like Audible and online books, it doesn't matter that your library is probably closed. Get a bunch of friends together to listen to or read a book and then get together to video chat about it! Socializing and reading make a great combination.
