Creatives & Celebrities join forces for Sussex-based social enterprise.

Business ideas don’t have to be complicated to be effective and Sussex-based Simply Marvellous Creative have founded a social enterprise that is using the simplest of ideas to bring some change and hope to people, around the world, that are affected by violence and prejudice.

Postcards For Peace is encouraging it’s supporters to send postcards which carry messages of peace, non-violence, hope, change and love, as well as designs which carry more specific messages promoting the work of other organisations working for equal education or better healthcare.

As well as designing some of the postcards themselves, Postcards For Peace are asking international creatives, celebrities and supporters to contribute their own designs and already they have received contributions from all over the UK and from Canada with others expected to follow. On social media they have also received support from many celebrities including Kate Nash, Alison Goldfrapp, Charlene Soraia, Eliza Doolittle, Sadie Pickering, Ella Henderson and more. Musicians Phildel and Clara Bond, are among ambassadors for the project and will be helping to promote Postcards For Peace to a wider audience.

Martin Rowsell, Managing Director of Simply Marvellous Creative and founder of Postcards For Peace CIC explains that while the celebrity endorsements are important, a major part of the project will be taking Postcards For Peace into schools: “Children aren’t born with prejudices, so I love the idea that a class of children in Brighton might come up with their own postcards that can be sent to a school in Baghdad.”

The Postcards For Peace online shop opened at the end of February and postcards have already been sold to supporters in Europe and USA. The focus now is to encourage more people to get involved and they are calling on other design agencies, photographers, illustrators, artists and celebrities to send in their designs. As a non-profit, social enterprise they are also looking for businesses that might be interested in offering funding or sponsorship so that they can continue to expand into new areas and help get the postcards working for peace and non-violence around the world.
