We are really excited to launch the #hellofriendproject today. Actually that is an understatement - we are super excited. Ridiculously excited. OVERWHELMINGLY EXCITED!
The #hellofriendproject came about because we wanted to do something to help people connect with those in their lives that they care about.
Everyone lives in busy, bustling worlds, and sometimes life gets away from us and we forget to let people know that they are important to us. To us, the idea of social connectedness with our friends and community forms part of “wellness”, and living a whole life. Random acts of kindness and appreciation to those you care about go much further than we all realise.
(And did we mention that we both really love stationery? :) )
We have created a postcard that you can send to someone you care about, just to say hi, or to send them some love, or just because. Emails, texts, tweets and Facebook mean that it is easy to send someone a quick electronic message. But the act of putting pen to paper, sealing it with a stamp and putting it in a postbox shows someone that you really care enough to make an effort.
You can imagine the wonderful feeling you would get when you discover this beautiful card in amongst your mail. There is a saying that “when not expressed, gratitude is like a present that is never unwrapped”. So let your friends know that you are grateful to have them in your life. Create some sunshine in their day, and this will make some in your own life too.
Anyone on our mailing list is entitled to two free postcards. Just send us an email to let us know you would like some, include your address and we will send a couple out to you. Or, if you sign up to our mailing list we will send you two postcards if you want them. If you want more than two then just head over to the shop on our website and you can buy some in packs of 5 or 10. This also helps to support our little business.
So please join in, reach out to the people you care about, and be part of the #hellofriendproject.
PS. Please post some pics of the card on social media, and let us know
how you feel about the project or giving or receiving one of these beautiful cards, so that we can spread the word and help more people get involved. Let’s create a ripple effect of kindness to those around us.
