Treat a long-distance friend
If you know someone special who is celebrating a birthday or promotion, send them money to buy coffee or lunch for themselves. This small act will demonstrate that you are thinking of them from afar and as the old saying goes, “the best ship of all is friendship.”
Call your parents and grandparents regularly
The days are slow but the years are fast, which means you should check in with the people who matter to you most. Picking up the phone for a check-in is a nice departure from a quick text message.
Send a pizza from far away
Order a pizza and have it delivered to out-of-town friends dealing with a birth, death, or another major life event. A heartfelt and delicious food delivery will put a smile on the faces of people dealing with a major life event who often don’t have time to sit down for a nice meal during the hectic period in their lives.
