The poetry cards feature 8-10 poems including a children's poem and a haiku, for those short waits! Poems are sourced nationally and internationally.

We printed and delivered our first edition - 500 cards - during the summer of 2008. We're currently printing 8200 cards each season and posting them out to 630 GP practices,457 Rest Homes, 8 prisons, and 10 hospices. Each seasonal edition is also transcribed into braille and distributed as booklets to members of our sight impaired community. PitWR(NZ) relies solely on donations and successful grant applications to fund its two costs – postage and printing.
