Postcards of Kindness


Girl writing letter

Do you know someone who could use a little extra kindness? Maybe it’s a friend who’s feeling down, or a neighbor who’s been sick. Or maybe it’s someone you don’t even know, like a person who lives in a nursing home or a hospital. If so, you can brighten their day by sending them a postcard of kindness! It’s a fun and easy way to spread joy to people. Let’s learn how to do it! 

  1. Choose a nice postcard with a pretty picture or design. You can find postcards at most stores, or you can make your own.  
  2. Write your message. Your message can be anything you want it to be. You can tell the person a joke, share a funny story, or just say hello. 
  3. Address the postcard to the person you want to send it to. You can ask a grown-up for help if you need an address. 
  4. Add a postcard stamp. If you don’t have one of these, a regular stamp will work, or you visit the post office to buy a special postcard stamp. 
  5. Take your postcard to the mailbox and drop it in. The post office will take care of the rest! 


Here are some additional tips for sending postcards of kindness: 

  • Be creative! There are no rules when it comes to postcards of kindness. You can draw pictures, write stories, or even make up your own language. The more creative you are, the more fun it will be for the person who receives your postcard. 
  • Be joyful! Remember, the goal of postcards of kindness is to make someone’s day, so write something positive, share a funny story, say how much you appreciate them, or simply tell them that you’re thinking of them. 
  • Be yourself! The person who receives your postcard will appreciate both the thoughtfulness and sincerity of your message. 


Postcards of kindness are a great way to spread kindness and cheer to others. They’re a simple gesture that can make a big difference in someone’s day.
