Spread some Xmas joy
An initiative to bring a bit of Christmas cheer to strangers has taken off at Porirua City Library.
The library has been taking part in the nationwide Sending Love programme, where people send Christmas cards to rest home residents who may be feeling lonely during the festive season.
It’s been a big hit in Porirua City, with the community getting behind the idea. Titahi Bay, Paremata and Cannons Creek School have all contributed cards to the programme. Last week KaylaRose, 6, and mum Lisa dropped off 179 Christmas cards from Plimmerton School to add to the collection.
Sending Love was started in Auckland with a mother and son’s act of kindness, and became a nationwide movement in a matter of weeks.
