Willeke Alberti fully supports the #aanwiedenkjij campaign: “Throughout the year I regularly send cards with congratulations or get well soon wishes to friends and family. December is the time to think about those elderly people who could really benefit from some additional attention. That’s why I’m calling on everyone to participate in this campaign. Together we can ensure that we surprise thousands of elderly people with a Christmas card this year!”
How does it work?
Everyone can send a Christmas card to an elderly person in the Netherlands via postnl.nl/ouderenfonds until 21 December. Simply write your Christmas greetings and send the card. PostNL mail deliverers will then ensure that the card is delivered to the elderly person. Participation in this campaign is free.
A small effort, a grand gesture
Director of Nationaal Ouderenfonds, Corina Gielbert: “Hundreds of thousands of elderly people can benefit from some additional attention. We can use this campaign to let them know that we are thinking of them. And that’s important, because loneliness among elderly people is a big problem. Sending a card is a small effort but is a valuable gesture that can really make someone’s day.”
The ‘Who will you think of this Christmas?’ campaign is part of a long-term collaboration between Nationaal Ouderenfonds and PostNL. For further practical details visit postnl.nl/ouderenfonds.
