To celebrate International Day of Happiness, what about sending a letter to the residents in the nursing homes? They love the idea of receiving all your letters, poems, drawings or what you'd like to send them. It will also guarantee you a little fun activity do something that makes you and others happy.
If you'd like to volunteer, please register your interest below and I'll provide you with the contact details to send your letters.
You can prepare your letters as you prefer, also including drawings, poems, short stories or similar. It's recommended to address them to "Dear Friend" or "Dear Friends", if it's for the whole group of residents.
Please note that this is not a Pen Pal project but a one-way project, so you won't receive any response back to your correspondence.
Unfortunately, not all nursing homes would be in the position of facilitating their residents to send letters back to volunteers.
Where possible, try to use some sellotape as an alternative to seal the envelope and remember to keep washing/sanitizing hands.
***An Post will ensure free delivery of all card and letter mail posted to and from residents of Nursing and Care homes in the Republic of Ireland until 31st March, Protected content . Please write FREEPOST where the stamp would normally be affixed.***
