So those of you that follow me on Twitter or read my blog may know that I’m on the love letter writing team for the World Needs More Love Letters.
This is an amazing project that started out so simply, but has grown into something huge. Hannah was leaving love letters she wrote to strangers across New York City. She truly believed in the strength of reaching out, even to a stranger, to say “Someone cares about you, you’re enough, you’re loved, people are thinking about you.” Through the connectedness of social media, soon Hannah was receiving requests for her love letters from people all over that needed some support or knew someone that was having a rough go. And so, in September 2011, The World Needs More Love Letters was born.
This is a project that is really close to my heart. And I think that’s a pretty big deal coming from me. I’m kinda known for my cynicism and jaded-ness. My cynicism was born from the fact that we humans seem to forget that we’ve all got stories, we’ve all come from somewhere and we’re all in this together. I believe in More Love Letters, because it reminds people that we’re all in this together and if we were all able to show a little more love, the world could truly be a better place.
Love Letters is looking for some support right now and with Valentine’s Day coming up, I was thinking what better way to show your loved ones you care about them than by sharing the love and supporting Love Letters. We could really use some help paying for all those stamps. Please visit the IndieGoGo campaign for More Love Letters or think about adopting a Love Letters Bundle or writing some love letters of your own to leave behind in your neighbourhood.
