The story behind the site

Three years ago, I was in quarantine for a month due to acanthamoeba keratitis. During that time, I experienced an incredible amount of loneliness and anxiety, and so it meant the world to me whenever I received a get-well-soon card. There is something so powerful in receiving a physical note in a time of need—it shows that you’re not alone. Hence, I was inspired to create Notes for Support to show patients and healthcare workers that there are people out there who care.

The person behind the story

Hi! 👋 I'm Gina, a high school student from Northern California. When I’m not in school or fulfilling the thousands of wonderful notes that have come through our site, you can find me working on side projects, jogging on the Guadalupe River Trail, and reading magazines. I am a sister, a daughter, and a friend. Thank you for visiting my site and supporting those on the frontlines! 😊
