Canada Post delivering postcards to every residential address in Canada
With the pandemic rapidly approaching a full year, many are experiencing feelings of fatigue and isolation as a result of constantly moving into and out of lockdown.
In an effort to help Canadians stay in touch when they can't physically visit each other, Canada Post is delivering millions of postcards to Canadians from across the country.
According to a news release, Canada Post will be delivering 13.5 million postcards--one to every residential address in the country.
There will be six different versions of the postcards, and each one will offer a message of love appreciation or thanks.
Recipients will be able to send their postcard to whomever they want, anywhere in Canada, for free--they can be mailed through any street letter box or community mailbox, or taken to a post office.
“Meaningful connection is vital for our emotional health, sense of community and overall well-being,” Doug Ettinger, president and CEO of Canada Post, said in the release.
“Canada Post wants everyone to stay safe, but also stay in touch with the people who matter to them," he continued.
