Alexandra postie Lisa Hoskin wants to carry out some “random acts of kindness” in Alexandra and Clyde next month, as part of a 60th birthday celebration.
She wants to give packets of her home-made baking to deserving people, to be delivered to mail boxes on December 10 and 11.
“I am looking for nominations of people who need a bit of a perk up because they have had a hard year, or who have done something amazing, or who deserve to sit down with a cuppa and a nice bickie,” she said.
She has already received some nominations and is expecting more.
“I have had some really nice ones and a couple have already brought a tear to my eye.
“It is also the time of year when people get stressed and busy so they can have a bit of a treat.
“It is just a nice thing to do.”
She is also looking for people who might like to donate some baking, and thought four to six pieces in self-sealing bags would work.
She will leave the baking in letterboxes, so would like items not prone to melting.
“What prompted it is my cousin is putting together a basket of 60 random acts of kindness for my uncle in Christchurch, who will be 60.
“He doesn’t get too worried about material things and this was a thing he would like.”
She said she would document the acts and they would be included in the basket.
Anyone wishing to provide baking or nominate someone can text Ms Hoskin on 027 557-6398.
