Sending Christmas cards a simple gesture to help lonely older people

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

The simple gesture of sending a Christmas card could help tackle "the single biggest issue facing older people today".

It all started when Auckland woman Hannah Rodgers and her son, Jayden, committed to 100 days of kindness in the lead-up to Christmas last year.

"On day 65, Jayden suggested we write a card for someone who might feel lonely at Christmas," Rodgers says.

Now Rodgers and her son want the campaign, Sending Love, to help 100,000 Kiwis of all ages as it returns for its second year.
