- 4x 16x16cm Hallmark Gallery cards including designs by Australian artists
- 1x Connected AU notepad
- 1x bow pen
- Special first-release edition gold-embossed box

We are thrilled to bring you these beautiful kits designed collaboratively by Connected AU and Hallmark all for the love of letters. Inside you will find a guide to writing the perfect letter, four large premium quality Hallmark Gallery cards and envelopes (including a selection of designs commissioned by Hallmark as part of their Australian Artist Collection), our first release Connected AU notepad for if you run out of room inside the cards, a fun and chic metal bow pen, and maybe something little to enjoy while you put pen to paper.

We also wanted to tell you a little bit about our packing material as we think it is actually quite special.  What protects your beautiful purchase is the shredded envelopes from the thousands of amazing letters written and sent across the country as part of our Letter Box Project.  They have come a long way and carried with them the magic of words, and their work is not done yet - feel free to reuse them when sending parcels of your own, add them to your worm farm, chicken coup or pot plant to return them to the earth, or place them in your local recycling bin.

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 to have you 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.
