Wellington City Libraries is proud to be participating in The Sending Love Christmas campaign again this year.

Sending Love is an initiative to write Christmas cards to be distributed to elderly who will be lonely this Christmas and who do not usually receive cards. Just write a card and leave it in the box before 9 December. Your cards will then be distributed to rest homes so that people who may be lonely this Christmas can know there's someone who cares.

Some pointers for card-writing:

 Make sure your card is filled with love.

 Make it as creative as you can.

 Ensure it has a legible message.

 Leave your envelope unsealed.

 Try to avoid religious quotes.

 Just be you!

Wellington City Libraries’ Central branch is a drop-off point for Sending Love Christmas cards. You can find the box on the side of the main desk on the ground floor.


For more information visit the Sending Love website at www.sendinglove.co.nz... On the website you'll also find other drop-off locations around the Wellington region. #sendinglovenz
