Hallmark and their support

Hallmark's mission is to help people live caring connected lives full of meaningful moments, so it was only fitting that they joined our mission to combat the loneliness epidemic in Australia.
Hallmark is the world's leading creator and manufacturer of social expression products including greeting cards, wrapping paper, gifting and, more! Their dedication to quality has made the Hallmark name synonymous with excellence and the quote "When you care enough to send the very best".
Hallmark has partnered with Connected AU on our Letter Writing Boxes and is our main support for our 'Gifts for connection’ shop.

The letterbox project is our flagship program. It is a national pen pal program fostering connection and community, with handwritten letters being sent across Australia to people feeling isolated and disconnected.

Our Letterbox Project is the only national program with management and safety embedded. We do not share any identifiable information, and all letters are vetted by our team. Every single letter for the duration of the pen pal communication is sent through our team and approved, allowing relationships and connection to thrive while ensuring everyone in our community is safe. 

In the digital age, a handwritten letter is a beautiful reminder of the power of real connection. Something seemingly simple can have a profound and lasting impact - for both the recipient and the writer. Every letter makes a difference and we would love for you to join us.

What is The Letterbox Project?

Inspired by my late grandfather I launched Connected AU in early 2020 and have watched my idea grow rapidly from humble beginnings to a purpose-led business that is making a real, measurable impact.

While I started this business with a mission to support lonely, isolated and vulnerable people in our community, the overwhelming support for Connected AU demonstrates a greater need for more genuine connection throughout our whole community.

Loneliness is indiscriminate, everyone feels it as some point in their life, so it was important to us to develop programs for all demographics. Our Letterbox Project is a tangible way to connect for all ages, but we have a particular focus on supporting senior Australians, people with disabilities and chronic health conditions. Our Online Hobby Groups are open for all ages, but were developed to be more inclusive for a younger demographic (18 - 75).

The momentum and growth of Connected AU since launching has surpassed my wildest expectations. And it’s because of people like you, who care enough to take action, that we’re able to make a difference in the lives of tens of thousands of Australians.
