Send Happiness Project – Uganda

Children everywhere LOVE to receive mail – it brightens their day and brings a huge smile to their faces. Our goal is to create MORE smiles in 2019 with the Send Happiness Project.

Send Happiness Project

Here at Petit Mail, in addition to our story postcards, I want to GIVE BACK to my community in the best way I know how – by creating FUN snail mail experiences for children at no charge. In January 2019, I created a Newfoundland and Labrador – Uganda pen pal exchange as part of my #sendhappiness project.

About The Send Happiness Pen Pal Project

  1. I created special pen pal stationery for the Send Happiness Project featuring all four Petit Mail characters.
  2. We gave approximately 300 elementary students in Newfoundland and Labrador special stationery and envelopes to write a pen pal letter to a student in Uganda. The stationery printing was sponsored by local printer Cre8iv Design & Print (thank you!)
  3. We coordinated the delivery of the pen pal letters (in partnership with Jorja’s Journeys) to children in Uganda and provided the approximately 300 students at the Ssuubi School with special stationery to write a letter back to their pen pal.
  4. Jorja’s Journeys delivered the pen pal letters back to us and we brought them back to the original schools to complete the exchange!
  5. Students in both countries got to learn more about each other – a once in a lifetime opportunity!

The Send Happiness Project has been an AMAZING experience for everyone involved, including me! It has been so rewarding to see the images shown above and to hear the stories from teachers here in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Send Happiness Project

Children everywhere LOVE to receive mail – it brightens their day and brings a huge smile to their faces. Our goal is to create MORE smiles (at least 500 in 2019, to be exact) with the Send Happiness Project.

Here at Petit Mail, we want to GIVE BACK in the best way we know how – by personally delivering snail mail to children who might need an extra smile in their day.

What is the Send Happiness Project?

  1. You purchase a “Send Happiness Project” story postcard or letter (we’ll choose one based on the child’s age).  Every postcard and letter purchased is delivered directly to a child.
  2. We will match EVERY purchase with a donation (1 purchased = 1 donated)
  3. We deliver a Petit Mail story to a child, in person, to brighten their day.

Card and letter themes for the Send Happiness Project include:

  • Audrey The Superhero
  • Milo Loves Reading
  • Oliver Explores Art

Petit Mail’s chosen mail delivery locations for 2019 include:

  • Janeway Children’s Hospital, St. John’s, NL
  • IWK Children’s Hospital, Halifax, NS (with corporate partner Unified Health)

EVERY purchase of a story card or letter makes a difference and will bring a smile to a child’s face!  

Cards and letters will be delivered between January and April, 2019.

The send Happiness Project is not affiliated with any religious or charitable organization.  Petit Mail is an Atlantic Canada business owned and operated by mom and entrepreneur Alison Butler.  Our goal is to bring smiles to the faces of children.
