It’s International Friendship day
30th July 2022
We all love & need our friends.
Whilst boyfriends, husbands, wives & girlfriends can come & go throughout our lives, our friends can be a constant rock spanning decades of love, memories, laughs, tears & support.
Celebrated across the globe, this day allows us all to treasure not only our own close friendships, but to reflect on the important values that make the world a better place, by bridging different cultures & nations together.
How can we best celebrate the International Day of Friendship?
1) Phone a Friend
Its so easy these days to substitute a phone call with a text, WhatsApp message or a Facebook comment – but when was the last time you actually spoke & had a laugh with your friend?
Hit the button & make that call – or even better, a video call!
You’ll connect so much more with a live chat & really show your friend how much they are valued.
2) Send a token gift
This isn’t about splashing the cash – real friends don’t want that. But sometimes the smallest gift full of thought, are the best!
Why not send a photo of a bygone memory shared together that’ll make them smile each time they walk past it.
3) Send a card
Nothing says it like a card and even better a personalised animated e-card sent with LOLVE!
Just select a stunning card with either preselected music & special effects or choose these options yourself- to send a truly personal message to your friend by Facebook, WhatsApp, email & more!
4) Just tell them you love them!
Yes we all know we love our friends & they love us, but have you actually ever said ‘I Love You’ to them?!
We’ve probably uttered those 3 little words to partners, kids & grand children over the years – but have you actually told your friend who you love as much, if not more?
Whether its by phone or video call or by e-card, let them know how loved & appreciated they are by telling them you love them.
5) Make a new International Friend
Want to reach out a global arm of friendship?
Then why not help out friends you don’t even know around the world & buy a gift for them.
With an Oxfam charity gift you can help educate women & get more children into school.
Many of the poorest children around the world don’t have access to schools or a decent education, leading to a life trapped in poverty & servitude.
The gift of the power of education is priceless and lifelong, so why not reach out that international arm and know that you have helped a friend you’ll never meet, but will always thank you for helping them.
However you celebrate the International Day of Friendship, we hope you celebrate your friends in style!
