From CNN's Carol Costello:
There are Hallmark cards for everything, from birthdays andKwanza, to depression and divorce. Hallmark's latest? Unemployment.
The company has launched a line of "job loss cards," ranging from the humorous to the thoughtful, that give consumers the ability to send cards to loved ones who have lost their jobs and may be experiencing financial troubles.
In explaining their decision, Hallmark says, “Cards for people who have lost their jobs are a reflection of the times. Hallmark customers were asking for these cards to offer support to their friends or family going through a difficult time. People in times of need always look for ways to connect."
However, with unemployment being perhaps the biggest fear in America right now, some are doubtful as to whether a “Hallmark moment” can make it better.
