Campaign: Little Red Envelopes

Being a young writer myself, I know how uplifting poetry can be.

 

This is why I am supporting a Fixers project, which involves sending anonymous letters of poetry to the public as a way to lift community spirit.

 

The poetry-filled letters – sent by 'Little Red' – will hopefully brighten people’s day and make them feel less lonely.

 

It will all be hand written by contemporary poets but will be sent by a secret Fixer, who prefers to remain anonymous, as a random act of kindness.

 

Hopefully people will be inspired by the gesture and will seek to do the same for others, enriching more lives in their communities through acts of kindness.

This Fixers campaign will be carried out by the secret young poet known as 'Little Red', whose prefers to remain anonymous.

My project is being well received and people are responding well to the poems! Below is some of the positive feedback I have received.

 

Patrick Sanders, Illustrator

'Little Red Envelopes is a wonderful project. Beautiful poems, fantastic artwork, tasteful presentation and all done with love. Getting an envelope was a real highlight of my day. I'll be putting this up somewhere prominently at home so I can continue to be encouraged by it!'

 

Sylvia McCaughan, BASE

'To get a Little Red Envelope was a lovely surprise! I'd had a hectic day and to open the envelope and read the poem was a great tonic!'

 

Jonathan Abernethy-Barkley, Assistant Minister at Fitzroy Presbyterian Church

'I received the Little Red Envelope and opened it to find the poem and image, knowing nothing more than it is from a young person who simply wants to encourage others . They achieved their aim, for me, and from the conversations I had with other recipients, for many others as well.'

 

Matt Craig, Schools Worker

'I was really encouraged by receiving my Little Red Envelope. It is a great project concept and really well done! Thank you Little Red!'
