Poems in the Waiting Room (NZ)

Poems in the Waiting Room (NZ) is small Dunedin based charity with a big heart. For for the last seven years we have published and distributed free poetry cards (currently 8000 each season) to medical waiting rooms, hospices, prisons and rest homes around New Zealand. People are welcome to read and leave the cards or take them home for further reading/sharing. The poems aim to take people away from sometimes worrisome situations for a moment, to give them a breather.  We also fund braille booklets of every poetry card - they are transcribed and distributed by the Blind Foundation.
