American Greetings understands that holidays and calendar occasions are not always celebratory for everyone. With that in mind, the company is highlighting aspiring parents and their journey as a very real, and all too common, life scenario where support and acknowledgement make a difference. In the second installment of its 'Give Meaning' campaign, a video entitled 'Not Alone' serves as a rallying cry, encouraging people to show up for each other in everyday moments – especially during times in our lives when the response isn’t always intuitive, like infertility.

To raise awareness of the importance of offering support to those experiencing infertility, the brand has partnered with Resolve: The National Infertility Association. Together, they hope to spark a thoughtful conversation that influences and inspires others to show up when it’s needed most. According to Resolve more than seven million people of childbearing age in the United States experience infertility. American Greetings realized this topic was one that many people can relate to, whether personally or through friends and family members, and joined forces with the 43-year-old organization in our efforts to encourage meaningful connections during times when a response is not always instinctive because Resolve was created to connect those feeling alone in their struggle with infertility by providing a community of empathy, kindness and support.

To join the conversation, consumers are asked to share a real moment that really meant something to you with #GiveMeaning.
