This uplifting news come to us from England, United Kingdom
With the fighters like police personnels, nurses, doctors, sanitation workers and others we have a new name added to the list. Hailing from Cornwall, Becky Wass, a lecturer was devastated while watching the coronavirus news update. She had a feeling that there must not be even a single person feeling helpless during self-isolation.
She went on to design a postcard that would help people in need. The postcard is made available on the web for free and anyone willing to offer help can post it in the letterboxes of people who are self-isolating and cannot move out to grab supplies.
The message on the postcard goes, “Hello! If you are self-isolating, I can help”. Then there are tick boxes where the person in need can tick across shopping, picking up urgent supplies, sending mails to someone or requesting a friendly phone call.
The one who desires to volunteer and help can easily print the postcards, fill up their details like name, phone number and address. Then they can distribute these postcards in their neighborhood in order to offer help.
Wass told her husband that thinking about the helplessness of the people was breaking her heart and she so wished that somehow she could do something to help them. She also added, “If just one person feels less lonely or isolated when faced with this pandemic, then I’ll feel better about it. Coronavirus is scary. Let’s make kindness go viral.”
This postcard campaign is already a bit hit in United Kingdom and people as far as Australia have also adopted the idea. The campaign also stresses upon contactless deliveries urging the volunteers to drop the supplies outside the doors rather than delivering it personally hand to hand.
Isn’t this a really great initiative to help the needy? Wass is absolutely a woman with a golden heart to have come up with such a brilliant idea. Something of this sort was essential currently and it will definitely boost the confidence of the ones self isolating. The postcards will also give them a feel that they are not alone and someone out there is ready to stand in support. A big salute to Wass and all the volunteers who have already started their services.
