Craving bubble tea? Need some self-rising flour for your next kitchen adventure? As a majority of the nation continues to stay at home, frontline workers like our delivery riders are still working tirelessly to fulfil our online orders. They continue to bring us food, drinks, groceries – all the everyday essentials that we need during this stay-home period.
And while leaving a five-star rating, or even dropping a small tip can show these delivery drivers your appreciation, sometimes, a physical gesture of gratitude can be just as meaningful – and heartwarming. Saying a simple “thank you” might usually suffice, but contactless deliveries are making it difficult to do so. One website, ThankYouDeliveryHeroes.com, hopes to make it easier for people to show their gratefulness through a series of well-design posters that you can print out and hang it on your door.
This free-to-use platform allows you to print out adorable artworks. Each comes with a well-meaning message to show delivery riders that their hard work of running around under the sun (or rain) is acknowledged and appreciated. Some of these posters include messages like “you make my day bloom enough though I’m stuck on Zoom” and “you’re not just delivering food, you’re delivering joy”.
Here's some inspiration on how people in Singapore are using these posters:
The community project is the brainchild of Kinetic Singapore, a creative agency, which hopes to give kudos to delivery personnel and bring a smile to their faces. As summed up on their website: “Deliveries may now be contactless, but they don’t have to be heartless.”
