Celebrate Father’s Day more than ever
As our nation continues to recover from the pandemic, we are reminded just how important family is in our homes and in our communities where struggles continue with stay-safe orders, social distancing requirements, quarantines and ongoing health risks.
Clearly those on the frontlines keeping us safe are true heroes, but heroics also happens in our homes where parents and children have had to face new challenges around home schooling, job loss, shortages of basic supplies and more.
But thanks to mothers and fathers it’s not all doom and gloom. We have a chance each year to stop the treadmill for a day and honor our fathers during a special day set aside just for them. And now more than ever, it is a deserved and special way to say thank you.
You may not realize it, but while our nation’s first Father's Day was celebrated in 1910 in the state of Washington, it wasn’t until 1972 that a day honoring fathers became a nationwide holiday in the United States.
There are a lot of great ways to say thank you to the most important people in our lives. At NGC we focus on that idea through our easy-to-use digital or physical gift card programs. Our goal is to always take the challenge out of honoring someone by offering a wide range of card options.
And now with NGC’s newly expanded greeting card service, it doesn’t get any easier to say thanks to the men in our lives. There are hundreds of great options, including the always popular Amazon card from the country’s largest online dealer. For adventurers there is REI, one of the nation’s top outdoor gear retailers. Or why not simply let dad choose something for himself with a VISA gift card.
No matter the approach, NGC is ready to assist as we thank our fathers and, really, all of the important men in our lives.
As a poet once wrote, “Dads are most ordinary men turned by love into heroes, adventurers, story-tellers, and singers of song.”
We can all do something extraordinary for the ordinary heroes we call fathers.
