National Letter Writing Month - 2023
Everything about a letter, card or small hand-written note screams “somebody cares” sometimes it even says “Somebody loves me”. The name and address in familiar handwriting, the knowledge someone took the time to sit down and write to you and then find a stamp and send it, the fancy paper. It is not often that these letters are discarded either. They are cherished, stashed away, keep in a safe place, because they often mean so much more to our hearts.
So when you write someone a letter, you’re literally sending happiness into the world. You are connecting on a much deeper level that any technology would ever be able to achieve. We all (in the shop) choose to celebrate by writing letters every April to challenge ourselves daily to make our world a better place. We also do it to just simply make others feel great about who they are.
“Kicking it old school” by writing a letter is soulful and we love the idea of this tangible gift, whether written with love, admiration or simply as a heartfelt thank you. It really does help to have something physical to look at to remind yourself of that person’s love and affection for you. That is why a month of letter writing. To ground us all back to what really matters … each other.
So lets clear off a space on your desk. Fill a mug with your best pens. Stock up on stickers, paper, envelopes and washi tape and let’s warm someone’s heart.
