Do you remember the feeling of excitement when receiving a hand-written letter in the post? ✉ A letter you knew was from a pen pal living too far away to meet on a regular basis. A letter with added photos, little objects and souvenirs to it. How lovely it felt to receive it and send back something equally precious!
I’ve been thinking about all the kids that are now stuck indoors for most of the days, with very limited interaction with their friends and the outside world – and came up with an idea that hopefully will help to brighten up their days a bit.
Let me introduce Happy Wildlife Post – physical letters that will be delivered to the children by post. As some of you might know, I’m a wildlife enthusiast and a co-creator of ‘Dr Hibernica Finch’s Compelling Compendium of Irish Animals’, so all the letters will be about an animal or an animal group and they’ll contain the animal-related facts, images and a list of suggested activities to keep the kids busy, happy and entertained. Suggested age group – 7-14 years old.
During the pandemic I’m charging very little – only €12.30 for four letters subscription within Ireland, or €15.2 if posting outside Ireland (the prices include post stamp’s cost at €1 x 4 and €1.7 x 4 respectively, the cost of printing, envelopes, PayPal fee and one give-away – so it’s not for profit but to have the production costs back and to keep me busy and useful in these difficult times).
Within the subscription, one letter will be sent every week.
Every fourth letter will have a little giveaway – a postcard, a sticker, a bookmark, a badge, etc.
Please keep checking my online shop.
