Mazda Letters of Hope Workshop
As the saying goes, “The pen is mightier than the sword.” This March, a group of young people and staff volunteers from Mazda will pick up their pens and paintbrushes to help let those dealing with cancer know that they are not alone in their journey.
In the one-day Letters of Hope workshop, the youngsters and Mazda volunteers will learn about cancer and treatment methods from the workshop facilitator, and explore ways of combining inspiring and impactful words and images to create messages of encouragement and support for young cancer patients.
Working with different expressive mediums, including collage, paper cutting, creative writing, print and illustration, the group will create handcrafted postcards with individual messages. All handmade cards will be delivered to young patients hospitalised with cancer in the pediatric wards of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
Letters of Hope is part of Mazda’s fundraising and volunteering programme Drive with a Heart, organised to allow Mazda employees and customers to contribute to society in constructive and engaging ways.
