At the start of 2020, a global pandemic hit causing the world to go into lockdown and leaving us all living in uncertain times. Most of us had never experienced anything like this, never believed things would get as bad as they did and truly just didn’t expect the world to close. It did though, and what do you do in a world you no longer recognise? Being unable to visit loved ones, see friends or just go out on a simple date night? Amazon was there to get people through!
I joined a few groups as lockdown hit, the groups were created to bring happiness during unprecedented times. They were there to send little gifts of hope and kindness, create new friendships and just there to help us get through.
I joined these groups thinking, yeah sure I’ll hang around here for a little bit so I did just that. I became so active that I ended up helping to run my favourite group. The group grew and grew with members, games and just fun but eventually hit a wall with inactivity and just a lot of rules we didn’t like that took away from the fun a little bit. This all resulted in us closing the group down and creating From Amazon, With Love. The previous group had lost its way a little bit so we created this one to truly just be the kindest group. We created it with pure love for our members and one another.
From Amazon, With Love has gave me some truly wonderful friends. Some I would now consider best friends and couldn’t imagine my life without them. The group has helped us form friendships that would never usually come about. Friends from different walks of life, different areas, personalities, those that may not normally form a friendship without this, and it’s magical.
Amazon groups have became such a big part of my life, much bigger than I ever imagined and I’m so grateful. Grateful for the people who have helped me so much over the last few months. Thank you for the unbelievable amount of gifts i she received through the letterbox. Thank you for the friends i now have that I don’t ever want to be without.
Thank you Amazon for bringing the world closer when we were all so far apart.
