As Seen on the Today Show: Napkins = Love From Garth Callaghan

By Kathy Zucker • Thursday, January 30, 2014

Update, 3/9/14: After Garth’s appearance on the Rachael Ray show, Bounty contacted him to spread the Napkin Notes love. Write a note for your family and change lives.


Here is the note I wrote for my second grader.



Garth Callaghan has been packing notes in his daughter’s lunch since the day she started school nine years ago. And he is determined to make that happen every day even if cancer prevents him from writing them.

Check out a sample here.

A reader sent me an introduction to Garth since he is his blog “The Napkin Notes Dad” recently went viral and he is in New York for the Today Show. Garth would love to speak to local parent groups – if you are holding a New York or New Jersey meeting in the afternoon or evening of Friday, February 1, please email me at Kathy@MetroMoms.Net so I can put you in touch with him. He is also available for return trips, so speak up now to snag him to speak to parents at an upcoming event.
