“I wrote this postcard for my kids. It’s been a long time since I wrote to them. So I did.”
Letter writing is a forgotten art. There was a time when sweethearts sent each other bundles and bundles of love via the written word. Now, we text. The instantaneous messaging has made us impatient, aggressive and also, inane. When letters were written, only the most important thoughts were carried forward but now, we tell each other everything. Let us accept that this does make conversations more boring after a while. There is much to be said for delayed gratification and HP Malaysia found it through the delivery of a simple postcard. In our day to day humdrum, we often pass by our loved ones and forget to tell them how much they mean to us. We give not a thought to repay the little things that we should be and are thankful for.
A postcard holds an even dearer place in our hearts because it comes from far flung places carrying the smells and sights of olden bazaars and modern metropolises. These nostalgia inducing festive postcards were printed wirelessly for these people who were truly moved to find how much they had to say. The HP postman hand delivered these postcards to very surprised parents, children and spouses.
Would it not be a kind gesture to write a tiny note on a postcard and send it to your friend who lives far far away? A thank you message or an “all the best” for their next venture? Sometimes we need an HP event to remind us about the kindness around us. Sometimes all we need to do is send a hug through mail. Watch the man who sent a thanks to his dad (That one made me tear up). You will find that you have also gained a little more patience through this video.
