Erin Schulte from Delta, BC, is asking people this holiday season to help out the members of the homeless community. For the third time, Schulte is organizing the Christmas Card Collective, an international effort delivering festive greeting cards, inscribed with friendly messages, to people sleeping in shelters. This year, the project—which came to life after Schulte spent five years operating a pop-up soup kitchen—aims to deliver 10,000 personal, heartfelt greetings.
Each evening in the days leading up to Christmas, as people are welcomed into the shelters, they will find on their pillow an envelope containing a card with a personal message inside. Schulte will personally read each letter before sealing it and sending it off for delivery. In the past two years, she has provided enough cards for three consecutive nights—this year, her goal is to extend it to five nights.
