When the going gets tough, the tough send letters of joy!
Carnival Homewares is very proud to be involved with The Letterbox Project. Created by Mea Campbell from CONNECTED AU, the project is based on “the idea that those of us who are lucky to be healthy, and surrounded by our families, can reach out and gift our time to someone who’s experience may be more challenging.”
Carnival Homewares donated our Post Boxes to the campaign to encourage others to join in and bring a smile to people’s faces. Lopa from Carnival Homewares was so impressed by what CONNECTED AU was doing and suggested we get involved.
“Sending a little joy – handwritten letters sent from people all over Australia to people isolated, disconnected and lonely.” The Letterbox Project
There are lots of others who are doing wonderful things to help those who are isolated during COVID-19. Our Carnival Homewares Post Boxes are also providing a lift of spirits for residents at Murray Haven Homes, in NSW. Each of their resident’s have their own personal post box on their door, which has given them a link to the outside world, delivering daily papers, letters and information. They have enlisted the local primary school to write letters to the residents which has given them much joy. Rita and Norm (below) love their letterboxes!
“It’s delightful to see all the smiles on the residents faces. Thank you Carnival Homewares from all the staff and residents of Murray Haven Homes.” Deborah Telford
