PIKE COUNTY, Ga. — The family of a Georgia woman who turns 105 next month is asking the public to send birthday cards to help her celebrate the big day.
According to WMAZ, Helen Mangham's family normally plans a big birthday bash for the Pike County centenarian but decided to shift gears amid the coronavirus pandemic.
"This precious lady, my grandmother (Helen Mangham) will be turning 105 on August 2," Mangham's granddaughter, Pam Vickers, wrote in a Facebook post Thursday. "Due to COVID, we are having to scale down our celebration a bit. I would love for anyone who is willing, to please send her a birthday card to my address, and I will give them all to her on her birthday. Please share this post if you will. I would love for her to get cards from all over the world. Thanks so much!"
Vickers told WMAZ that she plans to surprise her grandmother with the cards during a small celebration with family members, including Mangham's three little sisters, who range in age from 94 to 103, and 85-year-old son.
"She's just going to be over the top," Vickers told the news outlet. "She'll enjoy looking at each and every one and reading them, I know for sure."
If you’re interested in sending Mangham a card, mail it to Vickers at 257 Wallie Road, Molena, GA, 30258.
