This month, we’ve got three love letter requests that we know will hit you at the core. We feel extremely blessed to be able to reach out to three amazing people with our words of encouragement and Love Letter Bundles this October. Please help us make this the biggest + brightest mail delivery we’ve ever had.
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 until the end of the month 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! New to letter writing? Get started here!
The following letter requests were requested by close friends + family of the recipients:
“Kate has been crying almost every day for the last month. A recent breakup left Kate realizing she had entangled her life with a guy who was never right for her. When the two broke up, her life was changed completely. Now she is alone again after so many years, crumbling apart and not knowing who to turn to. Kate needs to know that there are strangers out there who believe in her and want to see her whole again. She needs to know that there is life, and so much of it, after a bad breakup.“
“Jason is my big brother. A veteran of the Marines, he served the USA and was deployed to Afghanistan twice and Iraq once. He has been trying to go through school since he got out of the military and has quietly fought PTSD , which has gotten worse in recent weeks. He has a big heart, and has always been involved in helping other veterans, disadvantaged, and disabled. Please help a Veteran feel special and see the sunshine in a dark period of his life!”
“Deborah was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2010. Since then she has gone through chemo and radiation with astounding strength. She was cleared, cancer free, after less than a year, and was ready to move on with her life. Since then, she has had numerous complications as a result of her surgeries and radiation treatments. She constantly says, ” I thought cancer was the hard part. They told me to beat cancer, and I did it. No one warned me about this part. No one is telling me how I am supposed to beat this.” She is low on hope, low on inspiration, and losing belief in the greatness of life and the human spirit. She needs to remain positive in order to continue to fight. She knows nothing about this blog, or what is done for those in need, but I know she would appreciate it more than anyone will ever truly understand. This could be exactly what she needs to regain the amazing strength I know is inside her. Deborah has so much left to live for, but could really use a few kind hearted third party people to express that to her. She needs strength to continue to fight. These letters have the capability to save her life.”
All Love Letters can be sent to:
PO Box 2061
North Haven, CT 06473
Letters can sent all in one envelope or individually, whichever you prefer. We’ve got little elves to sort them all out. Write for one, two or all three!
Please postmark all love letters by the last day in October. Please & Thanks.
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.

We will be creating a big ol’ pinboard to share of our awesome letter writers and we don’t want to leave you out!
happy love letter writing!
With crossed t’s and dotted i’s,
The nitty gritty P.S. kind of stuff…
- Think your friends and family would benefit from being on this email list as well? Pass them the link and encourage them to sign up: http://www.moreloveletters.com/get-involved/become-a-writer/ As promised on moreloveletters.com, we don’t want to live in your mailbox we just want to call on you when a love letter request needs some back up.
- You are totally our Juliets in all of this and we could not do it without you…. Speaking of Juliet, leave the mush to her and keep the love letters in the “friend zone.”
- Think you want to take on another love letter request? Just send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will hook you up with another letter that could use your skills. We appreciate all volunteer writers.
Oh, and P.P.S. For safety measures, we will not display last names of love letter recipients or addresses. All snail mail will be managed through the central More Love Letters PO Box. We also ask that you do not include contact information within your love letters. Keep the letters clean, no crude or inappropriate messaging will be forwarded to recipients. Please do not include monetary gifts.
