Christmas Cards for Farmers

Making Christmas Cards

Are you crafty? Would you like to show a farmer and their family how much you appreciate them this Christmas? Help bring the city and country together this Christmas by helping us create and send thousands of handmade Christmas cards to farmers all over Australia.

Rural Aid is calling on the communities of Australia to show their love and kindness by making a lasting impression on our farmers who help feed us, clothe us and keep our country rolling. We want you to make the cards with your own words and design, rather than buying a card.

To help Rural Aid distribute them as quickly as possible, participants need to follow these steps:

  1. The cards cannot be larger than 120mm x 170mm. You could fold a bigger card down to that size but this is the MAXIMUM size we will be sending on.
  2. Do not put your cards in an individual envelope. Instead, place all of them in a bigger envelope and mail them to Rural Aid at PO Box 1342, Sunnybank Hills QLD 4109
  3. Rural Aid will have thousands of envelopes here ready to put your card in and send onto an Aussie farmer.
  4. Please ensure that all cards have a personal message written inside, and are not blank.

I will be collecting cards to send in bulk, leaving an envelope at the back of the church. If you would like to participate but don’t have resources, card-making supplies are available from Jeni Nix and at Tuesdays in the Undercroft, 10:30 – 12noon.
