CONKER PenPals Kit 💌🔮🖋
Say hello to this lil box o' lovin ✨📦💓 🌞
This has been in the works for months and months (best part of a year actually!) tweaking, perfecting and pouring copious amount of love into it 💓
A bit about the CONKER PenPals project: 🌞
In these challenging times, letter writing is such a beautiful and much needed form of communication. 'Penpaling' has a bit of a name for itself as being a 'kids thing'. However, this beautiful, lost art form allows for the forging of new and rewarding friendships with likeminded people from all around the world 🌎.
You can learn about the day-to-day life of someone so far removed from you and your immediate environment, someone who you would have never met in your lifetime, if it hadn't been for your letters. It is incredibly fulfilling and grants perspective and an element of magic in our lives. We've detailed why we are SO ridiculously passionate about letter writing over on our Insta! @conkerpenpals.✨
You may have noticed that we already have a CONKER Penpals writing project up-and-running, which has already generated brand new friendships from all around the globe!
We donate to charity with every box! 📦 check below for details! 💓
🌸 We are donating 50% of profits from the boxes to Hackney Foodbank (we are donating as an independent organisation and not a corporate partner). Foodbanks are in more demand than ever.
🌸 We print our cards and notepads on recycled paper ♻️. We hold ourselves to account with our carbon footprint!
🌸 We support independent artists and the arts, paying artists fairly, and giving back and creating a platform for talented up-and-coming artists and freelancers. Currently the arts industry is taking a hit with the COVID crisis, so this is so important right now.
🌸 We truly believe each individual is important. in a fast paced world which is progressively becoming more apathetic to the importance of the individual, we ensure personalisation of each order. With handmade and handpacked products and a hand written letter.
🌸We are a teeny-tiny business, so by supporting us you are helping us push our passion which is to help and support marginalised groups and individuals.
🌸This kit is a creative and fantastic way to immerse yourself in the lost art of letter writing and to connect with new people all over the world! 📝🌏 💓🏡
