This set of 4 positivity postcards is designed to uplift the spirits of anyone struggling with their mental health. £1 from the sale of each set goes to The Samaritans. The helpline phone number and email for the Samaritans is on the reverse.
They have a heart punched in each side so that they can be strung together like bunting or tied to places where people may need their spirits lifting. The reverse of the postcard has the wording ‘reach out and have a heart to heart. It may be the best thing you ever do’. In between the punched out hearts.
These cards are laminated so can be displayed in or outdoors. Due to being laminated, you would need to use a permanent marker to write on them.
I have suffered with depression, anxiety, OCD and panic attacks for most of my life. I passionately believe that reaching out and helping each other is so important. I have personally turned to the Samaritans in my darkest times and found them so helpful. Sadly we have recently lost one of our fellow Crafties and I’ve also recently lost a friend and colleague who’s struggle became too much to bear. I am hoping that these cards can help people when they are struggling. I’m intending to display some in the area my friend chose to end her battle. I hope that anyone else battling may see these and find a reason to fight and get the help they need. These cards take a long time to make but every moment is worth it if they have the potential to save a life. Please help me to help others by buying these cards and using them to reach out, talk and promote good mental health. Plus guide those struggling to seek help when life feels too hard to bear. Together we can make a difference. Thank you.

Life can be tough and with everything going on in the world, it can seem a pretty negative place to be at times. I’m on a mission to change that by sharing kindness around the world. With 1/6 people experiencing a common mental health problem in any given week in England I know there a lot of people for whom a kinder, more compassionate world would make a huge difference. My own experience of being bullied and ostracised at school, led me to value kindness above everything. When I became disabled 2 weeks after my wedding in 2012, I lost my career and with it my sense of identity. I wanted to create something that could bring my creative skills and my desire to help others, together for the greater good. Since there are 13.9 million disabled people in the UK alone, I knew that I wasn’t alone in feeling isolated and lacking a sense of purpose so I wanted to prove there is always something that all of us can do to make the world a better place, regardless of our limitations. I set up the Kindness Community Facebook Group and we have fundraised to set it up as a Community Interest Company so that we can help even more people. I’ve created and sold products to raise funds for Ellenor Hospice, Mind, The Samaritans and NHS Charities Together Covid 19 Fund. We have also collected a great many resources which I’ve then distributed as care packages to people in need of food, bedding, clothing etc. There is also a big focus in the group of self-care and wellbeing so that we have the capacity to care for others, therefore, I have to concede that surviving on disability benefit myself, my resources are limited. That’s why we are applying for funding, so that we can expand the work we are doing and empower more people to join us in sharing kindness around the world. With this amazing site, I will be selling products that help share a message of kindness around the world. Money raised from sales will go to the Kindness Community CIC to help share kindness around the world. Many products also have eco-friendly qualities and donate to other charities too so that we can help even more people and share more kindness. It gives me a sense of purpose and I enjoy hearing customers say that they love what I made for them, and coming back for more. I also love that customers soon become friends and I'm thrilled to join this lovely supportive community to meet more KINDpreneurs.
