National Letter Writing Day on October 9
Postmaster Josie Dela Cruz said, the National Letter Writing Day is part of “PHLPost’s Sulat-Mulat Postal Awareness Campaign” with the aim of re-introducing and promoting the art of letter writing as a means of communication among students in today's digital age.
Dela Cruz added that the activity will also help the students hone their composition skills and foster the enjoyment of sending and receiving letters through the postal office.
According to the Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost), the theme for this year’s celebration is “Pinasaya,” wherein participating students are expected to write happy thoughts to delight a family member, friend, teacher, or anyone special.
The center of the festivities will be at the Samsung Hall of SM Aura in Taguig City with around 800 students from Metro Manila, while the rest of the said activities will be held in 34 other participating SM Malls and 1,000 selected schools.
PHLPost Postmasters will facilitate the discussion and actual letter writing and mailing activities in the said event.
