Distanziner Postcard Program

In this socially distanced world, it can be difficult to connect with others. That's why we want to send postcards as a small token of gratitude to anyone who has the means to donate to charity and help the world rebuild. Thank you!

We often see incredible people doing amazing things for their community and we want to thank them for their initiative and generosity (if this is you, thank you!). If you’re us, however, it can sometimes be difficult finding ways to help. There’s so much that needs to be done, but we just don’t know where to start. That’s why we’ve created this program to encourage donating to charity (only if you have the means!).

For every donation over $5, you can choose from one of three postcards featuring art from the first issue of Social Distanziner which we can either: mail to you, to a friend or loved one, or we can send a postcard on your behalf to a healthcare worker or resident in a long-term care home.

Why postcards? In this time of social distancing, it can be difficult to maintain relationships and contact with those we care about. Technology has made our lives much easier in that regard, but there’s something really special about receiving something special in the mail. We wanted to help people connect to those who matter to them, and so we created a fun way to do so.

You can choose from any of these three charities to support. We’ve done the research, and handpicked the following organizations, to support a range of impactful causes in this challenging time: Daily Bread Food Bank, CanadaHelps COVID-19 Healthcard & Hospital Fund, and The STEPS Initiative.

We’ll cover postage, and you can put a personalized message on the postcard you wish to send.
