Charity card range released to combat isolation with profits going to Dementia Adventure.

A special collection of Christmas Postcards for those who might be feeling isolated and lonely at this time of year

Charity card range released to combat isolation with profits going to Dementia Adventure.

This Christmas, thortful.com have partnered with Facebook community Postcards of Kindness to launch a range of postcards which they hope will help to inspire memories and spark conversation at a time of year that can be difficult for some. 100% of the Christmas postcards’ profit will go to charity Dementia Adventure.

The concepts were developed by people living with dementia who are part of Dementia Adventure’s Special Interest Group. The designs were brought to life by some of thortful’s community of creators.

For each postcard sold from this collection, 100% of the profits will be donated to Dementia Adventure. Dementia Adventure has a vision of society in which people live well with dementia, have contact and connection with nature, and enjoy a sense of adventure. A society where people enjoy a full range of activities, have strong relationships with people in their communities and have access to places connected to their interests, passions and dreams.

Dementia Adventure CEO Vivienne Depledge comments: "Many of us know someone affected by dementia, which can be a very isolating condition.  After diagnosis, a third of people say that they have lost friends and their social lives decline. People can find themselves spending most of their time indoors and unable to take part in activities they once enjoyed. This dramatically affects their sense of purpose and well-being.  So we are delighted to be working alongside thortful as part of this campaign. We invited our advisory group of people living with dementia to have the opportunity to be involved in the design process. We would hope that these cards will encourage many people to reach out with messages of friendship and kindness this Christmas"

Victoria Weller, Managing Director of Your Health Limited and creator of the Postcards of Kindness project comments: “We are always looking for new ways to connect our residents with other people, and encourage their involvement in the wider community.  I used to send cards to my nana about my adventures in between visits to her when I was younger. I knew then just how much those cards meant to her and was so keen for our residents to experience the happiness triggered when we receive a handwritten card just for us. This year we wanted to share those memories, and the anticipation of waiting for the postman with other care homes around the UK and beyond. We are so proud of the project and how far it has reached and know that people will support us in sharing festive memories with our elderly community and care homes in the group.”

Cards are available via the website www.thortful.com and postcards can be purchased via the app that can be downloaded here: https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/thortful-sell-or-send-better/id1041914779
