Description

Join Our Volunteer Letter Writing Team!

Are you passionate about spreading joy and brightening someone's day? Do you have a knack for writing heartfelt letters? Join our dedicated team of volunteers and make a meaningful difference in the lives of seniors in aged care homes and senior programs across Canada, the US, the UK, and Australia.

WHAT WE DO

We're an all-volunteer organization that mails cheerful, personal, handwritten letters and cards to elders in care facilities and senior programs. Since April 2020, tens of thousands of volunteers have sent more than 825,000 pieces of correspondence in 30 languages!

WHAT WE OFFER

  • A chance to make a direct and positive impact on the lives of seniors.
  • Flexibility to volunteer from anywhere, anytime.
  • A special program to verify service hours for students and professionals seeking community service credits. (Separate registration is required.)
  • Tips and guidance for crafting personal and meaningful letters available on our website and social media platforms.
  • An inclusive environment where volunteers are encouraged to share their own uplifting stories and experiences without making assumptions about the recipient's background or abilities.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

Join our team of volunteers and commit to writing letters on an ongoing basis. While handcrafted cards are welcome, they are not required. We encourage volunteers to limit affirmations and focus on sharing a bit about themselves to make each letter unique and special.

WHY VOLUNTEER WITH US

  • Make a direct and tangible difference in the lives of seniors who may be feeling isolated or lonely.
  • Contribute to a positive and inclusive community dedicated to spreading kindness and compassion.
  • Gain satisfaction from knowing that your words can bring joy and comfort to someone in need.
