A bunch of my friends decided to set up a pseudo trust fund for my children a few days after my husband passed (in lieu of flowers).  What is your take on the etiquette on my behalf?  Do I have to send thank you cards?  Lots of the people I don't even know.

I'm in the same boat. I have no idea how to even contact these people. Many of them are total strangers.

Exactly, half the people I talk to say yes and half so no.  I wonder since I don't know so many of the people if a FB/momsgroup message would be sufficient?  I can't imagine doing up so many thank you cards, let alone within 3 months which is what an etiquette site I found suggested.

A short letter/note to the local newspaper thanking everyone.
