A meeting via paper to cheer up our elderly.
In these times when there is only corona news to see, read and hear, NL Cares wants to cheer up vulnerable isolated elderly people. We would like to offer distraction and support via 'BLIJ Nederland', a newspaper with only positive messages.
In the digital world, such as Instagram and Twitter, a lot of funny messages arise that let us escape a little from day to day life and provide relief in an uncertain situation. Many elderly people are not so digitally skilled or do not have the right resources and are missing out.
We activate our own network of volunteers to provide stories and photos. Together we ensure that the newspapers reach the elderly via the care institutions in the cities where NL Cares is active: Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam and Utrecht.
We are still looking for nice content (for example happy and positive news, illustrations, poems, comics etc. )
And we are looking for volunteers who want to help bring the newspapers to care centers. Interested? Sign up and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
