Love Letter Request for August, 2012

we-turned-one The More Love Letters team wrote this so much better than I could. Here is the love letter request for August’s bundle.

(Heading off to write a love letter for LisaRose. Hope you will, too.) :)

Our Birthday Love Letter Bundle Mission: Meet LisaRose


Ditch the birthday cards, just send love letters

More Love Letters is growing, growing, growing and we cannot believe that already we are a year old! It has been 12 beautiful months packed with filling 6 continents, 47 countries and all 50 states with our love letters! We could not have done without you!

In just one year we’ve mailed over 4,441 love letters! Pat yourself on the back and treat yourself to a coffee for being such an amazing supporter.

Though we love a good birthday party, there is simply no time to celebrate when there are love letters to write AND WE. HAVE. A. LOVE. LETTER. BUNDLE. MISSION. FOR. YOU.

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 LisaRose.

LisaRose dedicated her most recent birthday to doing 50 Acts of Kindness… Today we are dedicated our birthday to LisaRose.

In lieu of birthday cards, please help us write love letters to LisaRose instead. Read her story below (submitted by one of her best friend’s):

“LisaRose has spent the last year taking care of her parents’ medical needs. Both of her parents’ are at different stages of dementia, and the transition has been very difficult for LisaRose. She deals with this along with her own medical conditions. And all this time, she continues to check in on her friends, take food to people who are sick or have lost loved ones, and help out her neighbors.

She is exhausted, heartbroken, and seems to have forgotten just how amazing she is.  I think she has forgotten that she is sunshine and inspiration for so many people.  Because of months of tiresome demands, the light is gone from her eyes. She needs to hear fresh voices reminding her how loved and valuable she is. Please, please help us put the spark back in her heart.”

please mail all love letters to:

PO Box 2061

FYI: We ALWAYS appreciate blog posts to raise awareness for these letter requests! 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.

  1. Funny how I was just thinking if you had a new love letter to write too – and of course your email to me helped also! Thanks Estrella!

    • Funny how life works sometimes, but I’m so glad you were thinking of me and writing a love letter this month as well! Thank you for that, I’m sure it means so much for the recipients.
      Now I’m off to transcribe my letter on a card so I can sent it either over the weekend or Monday.

  2. Thank you for posting this. What a great way to volunteer for something good!

  3. Hi Estrella, I just got back from the Post Office and got my letter in! I spaced out about writing the letter and then remembered and hoped I didn’t miss the postmark date! I’ll send a picture soon.

    • Yay! It took a while for me to reply here, but I’ll have to say it here as well – that was one amazing letter, stationery and all! Thank you for doing this.

      PS: I’ll have up the requests for September in a few days.
