Mid Canterbury residents are invited to be part of a campaign that sends a festive card and greetings to people who get few or no cards or visitors at Christmas.

Sending Love NZ is a platform to raise awareness about the reality of loneliness.

The idea is to create a card filled with love and to pop it into an envelope without closing it.

You won't know who it is going to, but the recipient will be happy to get it.

This year cards will once again be delivered to rest homes and, if there are enough, will also be given to people attending Ashburton's long-running Christmas Day Community Lunch.

Card drop offs have been set up at Robert Harris, Paper Plus and Ashburton Art Gallery.

The drop boxes will stay open until December 13
