Here it is, better said by the More Love Letters Team :)
Hey, hey, hey! We’ve. Missed. Your. Face!
It’s 2013 and we are all sorts of ecstatic to start the New Year off with you! Our whole crew was on a much-needed hiatus from December 14-January 7. Sorting and mailing 3,500 love letters from the 12 Days of Love Letter Writing is no easy task!
But we are back for you and we’ve packed this post to the brim with love letter requests 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 TWO 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 MoreLoveLetters.com 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!
The following letter requests were requested by close friends + family of the recipients:
MEET RICK & JENNIFER
“Rick and Jennifer are the proud parents of two children. Recently, their little boy was diagnosed with leukemia. This family has been through so much in the past year, from uprooting their lives, to losing jobs – it’s been a fight to keep their heads above water. Rick and Jen are giving, loving, wonderful parents and people in their community. They are pillars of strength but it is my hope that the MLL community can be a source of strength and love and light for Rick and Jen as their son undergoes chemotherapy and various treatments. They are a family who could use all the love and hope in the world right now. ”
“Allie graduated from college a couple years ago with a degree in English Literature. She is very introverted and lately she has been feeling very worthless and low. She is too afraid to apply to any jobs that are within her field. She wants to be a high school English teacher or special ed teacher, and eventually work to change educational policy and help better the school systems in America. She is so afraid of failure and doesn’t understand just how precious she is.She is so kind and caring. Allie is the most selfless person I know. She loves everyone she meets. She just needs a little push to show her that other people will love her and accept her just the way she is. These letters will give her the confidence and support to go make her dreams come true.”
MEET MICHELLE & HER FAMILY
“My cousin Michelle was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer in 2011. The doctors have given her 3 to 6 months to live and she is trying one last chemo with a poor success rate. She is doing this because she can’t bear to leave her loving husband and two boys who just want their mom to get better. I am asking for her family to be given words of encouragement, that even though they have been through so much they will be able to get through this. I know how difficult it is to see someone you love struggle to hold onto life and then slip away. I just want them to know that they aren’t alone in this struggle.”
