A neat story trending on social media Wednesday, is an initiative being deployed by Canada Post. The nation’s mail service has found an ‘innovative’ way to reach out to people ~ and it’s all about going ‘old school’. Pencil (or pen), Postcard, Handwriting, Mail.
Canada Post is getting ready to deliver 13.5 million pre-paid postcards across Canada starting March 1st. Each household will receive one of six versions that can be sent to whomever in the country for free.
Over the next few weeks, Canadian households will be receiving the postcard from Canada Post. #WriteHereWriteNow Campaign is intended to help citizens harness their creativity and “send something to someone you miss ~ and send it gratis within Canada.
The Campaign’s slogan is,
It’s always the right time to make someone’s day, #WriteHereWriteNow.
Over the next few weeks, Canadian households will be receiving a free postcard from Canada Post. #WriteHereWriteNow

“I love this! @canadapostcorp #WriteHereWriteNow campaign understands the lack of connection their audience might be feeling right now as a result of the #COVID19 pandemic. This initiative makes it easy for Canadians to send love to friends and family.”
Katie Collins – @thesweetbashco on twitter also loves the idea. She posted the following tweet,
“Please, I beg of you do not throw this away! If you have zero intention of sending some love to a fellow Canadian tweet at me. I’ll come and pick yours up and send it myself! ”
