What is it?

Born out of the success of the ‘Manx Sewing for Safety’ project and seeing first-hand how much of an impact the Manx people can have when the Island comes together, the Post Millish Project was designed as a way of giving back to the Manx community and lifting up spirits in this covid-centered time.

Created by Ciara Kilgallon, the project encourages the creation and circulation of positive postcards, donated for free by local artists and funded by sponsorships.

The Post Millish Project was primarily established as a way of combating the effects that loneliness can have on health during the pandemic and it has done just that. Promoting messages such as ‘every little thing is gonna be alright’ and ‘you’re not alone’, the postcards have been a beautiful asset to many people’s WFH set up and daily lives. We have them scattered all over the Gef office!

Who is involved?

Thanks to the abundance of creativity we have here on Island, a whole host of talented artists were able to get involved. Having done some epic artwork for us during the pandemic, Laura Bowles’ put pen to paper (or Apple pen to iPad) creating a G&T in PE for her design.

We adore everybody’s work on this project so far, so we also would like to give a huge shoutout to the fabulous: Karolina from Cup of Layna, Juan Moore, Jade Boylan, Kate Summerville, Felicity Wood, Kiara Mae, Emily from Frog and the Tadpoles, Adam Berry and Beth Louella.

Of course, a project like this doesn’t come without a fee, so the project owes a big thank you to it’s sponsors, both individuals and small businesses. We would love to see these carry on, so if you would like to contribute to help continue the funding of this project, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with @postmillish on their social media.

Where can I find these?

If you want to brighten up your day with one of these amazing postcards, you can collect them for FREE from schools, some sheltered public places and in certain foodbank parcels to spread joy.
