How easy is it to send an online get well soon card?

When you’re under the weather, having the support and love of family, friends and colleagues is a great comfort. Organising an online Thankbox card is extremely easy and messages can be added quickly and with no fuss. 

Being online anyone with an internet connection, anywhere in the world can contribute to the Thankbox.

Follow these simple steps to help with someone’s recovery:

  1. Create. Get started with one click 
  2. Add the ‘patient's’ name and give the card a title e.g. “We all wish you a speedy recovery”. Say who it’s from and then decide to pay up front or later.

How easy is it to customise and manage my get well soon Thankbox?

Thankbox is designed for you. It’s personal, efficient and meant to be fun.

Making changes, upgrading and managing your get well soon card is super easy - right up to the point of sending.

From your dashboard as the organiser you can:
  • Customise your Thankbox - backgrounds, titles, icons. Upgrading to Premium allows more customisation.  Video in messages; raised gift collection ceiling; handcrafted backgrounds and a host of user uploaded customisations.
  • Change the Thankbox send date.
  • Decide who sees the collected amount.
  • Create reminders. To either set up a Thankbox and for specific annual events.
  • See what all those fab messages look like as the recipient.
  • Copy and share the Thankbox sharing link.

Contributors to a Thankbox card can:
  • Edit their message
  • Change any GIF, photo or video
  • Change their choice of font
  • Add to collection contributions

And throughout the life of a Thankbox everyone is kept informed of progress all along.

What are the advantages of an online get well soon card compared to a traditional paper one?

Traditional cards are great on a one-to-one level. Anything more than that and they run into big limitations. 

When a group - work team, friendship group, extended family, social clubs, church, voluntary group - wants to share wishes of support or any personal message a Thankbox is the best option.

Online, or virtual, cards are:

  • Inclusive - everyone, anywhere in the world can add a message. An internet connection is all that's required. With nobody excluded, the  card is so much more meaningful and valued.
  • Efficient - click, create, share, customise, send. It takes seconds to invite people to add messages and contribute to the collection. A virtual card saves a huge amount of time and hassle.
  • Unrestricted. No limit on contributions - there is no limit to the number of contributors or the length of their messages. No cramming tiny writing into what’s left of the space in a card. The Sir David Attenborough birthday public Thankbox is a great example. Thousands of people signed and shared their love and appreciation.
  • Fun. A Thankbox features photos, GIFs and videos, different fonts and emojis. There is no restriction on anyone’s creativity. All guaranteed to make anyone feel brighter.
  • Flexible. Messages can be edited, and collection pot contributions added to right up to the last second before sending.
  • Forever. The unique Thankbox link is always live. An option to download as a PDF is available.
  • Great value. One payment opens up a world of possibilities and creativity for online group cards. No sending fees, no extra costs. And with a Thankbox a collection pot comes as standard so no added organisation or duplication of effort. 
  • Share the cost. A Thankbox can be paid for from the gift collection amount if one is enabled. Fair to share.
  • Environmentally friendly.  A Thankbox is good for the planet. No emissions. 100% renewable electricity. No offices, no delivery or commute miles. No paper means no wasted energy, water, or chemical disposal. We also plant a tree for every 10 Thankboxes sold 🌲.

Only a Thankbox allows everyone, anywhere in the world to send personal messages, add to a collection and all without limits.

What to write in a get well soon card?

No-one likes feeling under the weather. Getting a Thankbox ‘get well soon’ card from friends, family and colleagues will lift anyone’s spirits.

However, it’s not uncommon for people to suffer writers-block when it comes to writing a personal message in an online group card. No space limits and the opportunity for fun and creative messages mean it can be tricky to know what to add.

An online ‘get well soon’ card allows for complete expression. Here are some broad tips on writing your message and what to include:

  • Be happy! A positive outlook and message is a must when sending a ‘get well soon’ card to someone ill or in hospital.
  • Be funny. An injection of humour (depending on how well you know the person) is always welcome. Just be cautious - you don’t want to cause any discomfort with laugh out loud recollections and comments. 
  • Be personal. This may sound odd, however, because you are not limited to ‘get well soon’ you have free rein to be yourself and add personal memories.
  • No rights or wrongs. There really are no different do’s and don’ts for a virtual card compared to a paper one. Being conscious of who else is writing is always a good tip to avoid any embarrassment.
  • Show empathy. It’s often the case that when someone is unwell, having an empathetic thought shared is a great comfort. And remember, everyone feels different so sympathy with a condition may not be the best approach. Empathy yes!.

Whatever you write will be a great source of support. Knowing friends, family and all those in their life are ‘with them’ is a wonderful pick-me-up.

Is a collection for a get well soon gift included with my Thankbox?

Yes it is.

Every Thankbox has a gift collection option included as standard. 

It's optional because for some occasions it may not be appropriate. For others it absolutely is. For example a farewell card for a coworker will always need a collection. It makes no sense to go elsewhere for the collection. 

  • When you create your Thankbox all you do is click the ‘Add a gift card collection’ button and you’re all set. 
  • Decide too if you want to pay for the Thankbox from the collected amount.
  • Everyone invited to leave a message can add to the collection pot at the same time. Saves everyone time and hassle
  • Not all online group card services provide a collection service. 
  • The majority of online cash collection services don't include a group or virtual get well soon card.

Is my Thankbox secure and private?


Only people with the sharing link can access a Thankbox and only to leave a message. Thankbox links are not visible to search engines.

Thankbox servers and software are secure and compliant with best practice security protocols. We've partnered with the best payment processing service to ensure maximum security of payment details.
