Love Letter Request for May, 2012

moreloveletterslogo As much as I would’ve loved to have ten “Yes!” responses to my question about adopting a love letter bundle on a seasonal basis, I haven’t… BUT I’m not giving up completely! No love letter adopting, okay.

So instead, I decided to start posting each month’s love letter request here on my blog and, aside from the few people who have said “Yes!”, give anyone else so inclined a chance to write love letters when they are willing to.

Below is part of my received e-mail, the love letter request for May:

A mother and her soldier

May has certainly proved to us just how capable she is at playing Tug O’ War with our postage stamps… We adore the mamas we honor on Mother’s Day but we salute and respect the soldiers, past & present, who serve around the world.  AND SO… this month we’re taking on both.
We hope you’ll pull out the stationery this May and help us out in bundling up love letters to send overseas to Brandon and to fill the arms of his mother, Sharon.

So what is a Love Letter Bundle?
Each month, we send out a "call for love letters" (just like this one) for an unsuspecting receiver (or in this case, receivers) in need of a little handwritten goodness. You will then have 2 weeks to send over a card or letter to the More Love Letters PO Box. We’ll bundle the letters and mail them all together to a lucky, lucky mailbox with an explanation note from on top.
It’s simple. It takes 5 minutes. And really, what’s better than a monthly pinning of "heart to page" for someone who truly needs some love and syllables?  So gather your friends, your students, your coworkers or church group, and take on the monthly mission together!

Meet Sharon & Brandon

We had originally planned to send a massive amount of love, strength and support to Sharon’s mailbox. Her only child, Brandon, was just sent off to serve and we figured she could use a day brightener during this month devoted to the Mamas.
And then we realized it… Why write love letters to JUST Sharon when we could shower Brandon with support too! For his bravery. For his courage. For his will to make this world a better & safer place. Yes… we agree… we are SO capable of both.

So double up your stationery and Let’s. Get. Going. Troops!

Planning to take on this mission?
Let us know on Twitter & Facebook

Get creative. Pull out your glitter, write down your favorite quotes and REMEMBER: We all write love letters differently, own your love letter writing style…we don’t need someone else’s love letter, we need yours.
We also ask that you stay POSITIVE. UPBEAT. & SUPPORTIVE in your letters. Storytelling is A-OK but let’s not dwell on the negative, folks.


Please mail all love letters to any of the following:

Sharon’s Bundle
PO Box 2061,
North Haven,  CT 06473

Brandon’s Bundle
PO Box 2061,
North Haven,  CT 06473

&… if you package them together…

Brandon & Sharon’s Bundle
PO Box 2061,
North Haven,  CT 06473

Please postmark your letter(s) by May 24, 2012 to be included in the May Bundles.
(Pst…. we HIGHLY encourage tweet pics & instagrams to @moreloveletters of you with  your love letters!)
