Be Kind & Thank Someone

Would you like to thank someone who has helped you over the last few months? It could be someone you work with, a friend, neighbour or family member.

As part of the Be Kind Maroondah campaign, we are offering our community free ‘Thank you’ cards. We have a printed card all ready for you to use or a template where you can make your own card with a personalised message. 

If you’d like us to send you some ‘Thank you’ cards, please email fiona.burridge@maroondah.vic.gov.au or call us on 9294 5737.

Alternatively you can make your own card with a personalised message using the template attached or available on our website. Don’t have a printer? That’s ok, we can send you copies of our template to fill out.

Remember to take the necessary precautions to ensure you are only spreading kindness. Keep to social distancing guidelines at all times, stay within 5kms of your home, wear a face mask when outside and wash your hands regularly.
