Connecting with friends and family has been tough in this year of iso and physical distancing. But now it is time to renew lost friendships and make plans again – and Wellington Shire Council’s Be Kind Wellington postcards are the perfect way to send out some love, kindness and perhaps a coffee date request.
Be Kind postcards can be found at cafes, bakeries, libraries in Sale, Yarram, Stratford, Maffra and Rosedale, the Yarram council service centre, Aqua Energy, post offices and selected shops and stores across Wellington.
They feature a range of simple designs that locals can colour in, then share with a neighbour, family member or friends. It is as simple as grabbing a few cards and some coloured pencils then getting creative.
Some residents have opted to complete half of the colouring-in, then have sent it to someone else to finish. That way both friends can share a completed work of art online ¬- using the #BeKindWellington hashtag.
Designs, including a swan print not found on the printed postcards, are also available on the Facebook group Be Kind Wellington so they can be downloaded and printed at home.
Only 2000 postcards have been printed, so be quick to grab one and brighten someone’s day.
