CINCINNATI — Valentine's Day is fewer than two weeks away, and if you plan on celebrating with a loved one or your single friends, you can make a patient's day with an electronic card.

The Cincinnati Children's Hospital is asking people to send Valentine's Day e-cards to their patients to help brighten up their day.

People can pick from six fun e-cards to send to patients at the hospital, and you can send as many as e-cards as you want. Plus the service is free.

In 2019, over 500,000 e-cards were sent to patients from all 50 states, 130 different countries and six continents, according to Liz Smith, the manager of annual giving at the hospital.

"It just warms my heart, because each one is someone who took the time to think about our patient families and submit a message," Smith said.
