The holidays are closing in soon for Christmas, New Years & end of the year which can be very difficult for many as they often lead lone lives. Anxiety, depression and suicidal tendencies tend to spring up especially if the individual feels alone.
But what if you could change that for someone? What if you could be an angel just for a day in delivering a simple message that would last a lifetime?
Remember those moments when you sat through a pile of handwritten letters, cards, notes and felt wonderful just for having them? Reading it does something to you. It gives you something to wake up to. And there is something magical when you are shopping for the right card with the right message, spending your time thinking about the right colour, right pen, and making stupid mistakes while writing your message down. These impressions last a lifetime for the giver and the receiver. You also need to get to the post office, stand in queue and send it. In this fast life of ours and instant wishes over social media, all of us think we are important people with time that cannot be wasted and thus we forget about these small acts of an angel.
SO, our event is simple:
1. Buy a card, write a letter, or make a card yourself.
2. Mail it to someone you know (family, friend, colleague) OR give it to a stranger.
3. Before sending it, take a picture of your card or letter and share it on your social media account. Tag The Red Door™ and don’t forget to use appropriate hashtags ( #mentalhealth #angel #thereddoor )
Get started & tweet, facebook or instagram your entries to us!
Peace & Colour!
