Junk mail with a cause

SJI Junk Mail

I hate junk mail, and not the electronic kind. I get tons of paper jammed into our mailbox downstairs, and it really really irks me to see that companies keep thinking it’s the best way to get word out about their products and services.

Well it’s not, and you’re not getting my business, pizza hut, canadian241 and KFC and various other real estate agents!

So it was with some glee that I found in our letterbox yesterday a junk mail from St Joseph’s Institution’s Green Club.

I was going to be all cynical and blog about how ungreen their Green Club could be – putting dead tree junk mail into people’s mailboxes and hoping the recipients won’t just chuck it without reading it.

But seeing as I was going to blog about it, I read it, and found that, okay, it was for a good cause – SJI’s Green Club is collecting used and unused spectacles for people who are too poor to get glasses themselves. It’s called the Gift of Sight Project.

So, you’re forgiven, SJI Green Club!
