APRIL 30, 2013. OAK RIDGE, TN.
This was just so cool! My wife and I were down from Wpg, Mb. visiting her friends and relatives in Oak Ridge, TN, the week of April 20th to 24th. We had brought our bikes with us to take in the gorgeous weather. As we were riding up the trail from the marina we noticed on two separate occasions, envelopes with writing, laying on a bench with a few rocks on top to prevent them from blowing away. Pictured below are the envelopes. Looking around to see if someone had forgotten them or wondering if they were intended for someone, I was hesitant to remove them, never mind open them! Well, considering they were “written” to me, my wife suggested I open them. Well I must say this was an absolutely wonderful idea which just made our day! So we in turn payed forward some one else’s good deed by leaving a card behind as well. And we shall continue leaving behind these little bits of human kindness. Thank you for a wonderful idea, it shan’t be broken, and please don’t break it.

APRIL 26, 2013. PORTLAND COMMUNITY COLLEGE
I was checking out the perks of being a wallflower when i happened upon this letter and the librian said it looked like I had a letter in it. This letter had seriously made my day. I was having a pretty shitty day with me being anti social and having depression on top of it. Aswell as having friend issues. But, seeing this letter had seriously turned that for the better. If the person whoever wrote this ever sees this, I just want to thank you and know that I will be leaving a letter in its place. You’ve made this book special to me, and that should be passed on to the next lucky person who checks out this book. Thank you.

APRIL 13, 2013. PHILLY, PA.
I found this letter at the end of February and it was not until now that I decided to go on the website.
When I found your letter I was just leaving the building after deciding to skip a class. I had been stressed about the class all term and didn’t do an assignment due that day. Needless to say I was in a crappy, crappy mood. This letter made me smile.
APRIL 22, 2013.
I found this letter yesterday at my local church. It took my breath away and made my heart cry of happiness.

APRIL 20, 2013. UNIVERSITY OF UTAH
I am a student at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City Utah, and found a love letter on trax, our public transportation train. I wasn’t having a bad day, but it was rainy outside and pretty cold. I saw a piece of yellow paper that said “Pick Me Up ” and was intrigued. It was filled with a lovely message, that just made me smile. I plan on doing the same soon. Thanks for the love Jay L.

APRIL 6, 2013. MORGAN HILL LIBRARY.
I went to the library while I was having the worst seasonal allergies I’ve ever had. I was flipping through the pages of Willow by Julia Hoban and found this note. Not only made me smile but my allergies got a little better! Thanks to whoever “Brooke” may be. Love, Shayla.
APRIL 3, 2013. BRISTOL, UK.
APRIL 3, 2013. CONVENT GARDEN, LONDON.
Went to the Women’s loo in a restaurant called Hawksmoor in Covent Garden, London. The envelope was just peeking out of the storage cabinet above the toilet seat of this particular cubicle. Thinking it was just a piece of stray toilet paper I took it out and was totally shocked! It was a letter of some sort but I couldn’t tell exactly what it was. Curiosity got the better of me and I opened it. What a sweet gesture and I’d like to thank whoever put it there!
Unfortunately I couldn’t put it back for others to make their own discovery as i had torn the sealed envelope open, but I will certainly pay this forward!
Lots of love from London,
APRIL 1, 2013. OTTAWA, ON.
Attached is the letter that my 12yo daughter found today. The enveloped read, “This is for you. Yes, you!”
I feel both sad and happy: sad because the writer of this letter sounds like she needs a good friend and a warm hug (which I’d be happy to provide if I knew who it was) and happy because she has reminded me of the connectedness of human kind. I’d love to find out who she is (and I’m just assuming the writer is a she).
The definition of philanthropy is “love of human kind.” As you can see from my job title and place of work, this is something I live every day. Today, I was having a bad day because of a misbehaving tween. The letter reminded me of what’s truly important in life.
MARCH 25, 2013. CASTRO VALLEY, CA.
I was busy busy busy just got out of school stopped to grab a cup of coffee at Peets and there sitting on the bench was a note I waited till I got to work to read it. I was touched by the kind words that seemed to just soothe the soul. I appreciate those words. Thank you. Will pass it on ~One love
MARCH 28, JACKSONVILLE, FL.
A friend and I were shopping at Joann fabrics in Jacksonville, Fl and found this note near the check out counter. I got misty eyed because I’ve been fighting my depression and anxiety these past couple weeks and finding this on a rare day out was amazing.

MARCH 23, 2013. SILVER SPRING, MD.
My love letter was found at a Panera Bread in Silver Spring Maryland. At first I thought I should not have picked it up because it looked like it was someone’s personal mail. But the excitement of seeing the words Love Letter would not let me put it back. So I snuck it in my purse and waited until I got to my car. When I opened it, I was overjoyed at such a beautiful message. And the message was something that I needed to lift my spirits at that time. Thank you for such a random act of kindness. You never know the power of your words and how they may just help or even save a life. KUDOS! I am motivated to do my own love letters now. Happy Spring!
MARCH 21, SAN DIEGO, CA.
Found tucked inside the railroad map from San Diego To Los Angeles.
MARCH 21, 2013. UNIVERSITY OF TENNESEE, KNOXVILLE
This letter made my day found in the library at The University of Tennessee, Knoxville. I’ve been so focused on losing weight and my image lately, this gave me encouragement that I’m beautiful just as I am! “There is no one alive who is you-er than you!”
MARCH 21, 2013. UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE, KNOXVILLE.
I found this in the stall of the ladies room at The University of Tennessee-Knoxville. I thought to myself…what in the world is this? I opened it and just loved what it said. It just really made my day! I was having a bad day and this letter just totally changed my attitude. It seemed like the words were made just for me. I smiled the biggest smile ever after reading it. Don’t know who thought of this idea but I love it!! I’m going to return the favor and hopefully brighten someone‘s day!!
MARCH 20, 2013. AUSTIN, TX.
Yesterday was difficult for me. I’m over worked and underpaid, taking care of my Mom, and treating my beloved dog for cancer. Things have been difficult lately, as there is never enough money or time to do everything. While shopping for dinner last might I found this note in the Randall’s meat counter on Brodie Lane at Slaughter. It brought years to my eyes as I was overwhelmed by the kindness and thoughtfulness of the stranger that placed that more. So I was inspired and have since dropped a dozen notes in various places around Austin. Thank you for the blessing!
MARCH 15, 2013. GRINNELL, IA.
This was found on March 15th, 2013 at Grinnell Regional Medical Center in Grinnell, Iowa in the lab waiting area. What a great note to finish out a very hectic and busy week!!! Thank You and God Bless!!!!
MARCH 14, 2013. PERU
Found at Peru il bergners in the employee break room. It really made my day to hear such positive and encouraging words left by an unknown giver. What a nice start to my day:) thank you whoever you are! I hope to leave one for someone else soon.
MARCH 11, 2013. REGIS UNIVERSITY LIBRARY.
I was about to make copies in the Regis University library when I stumbled upon this letter. It made my entire day. I’ve been having a really hard time lately with self esteem and eating issues and this was just a nice relief I wouldn’t have normally had. Thank you so much.
MARCH 11, 2013. DREXEL UNIVERSITY.
This morning, I found this love letter perched on a sofa in MacAlister Hall at Drexel University. When I first noticed it, I was very curious. I sat down and studied in the room for about twenty minutes before deciding to pick it up and open it. Honestly, I was surprised that someone would be so kind. Yesterday, I had a horrendous day that left me feeling like no one cared, but I now know that is not true. Thank you, J, anonymous stranger, for reminding me that even though the world can seem a muddled mess, it is brimming with the goodness and hope of people like you. You have inspired me to never stop believing in the inherent kind-spirited nature of humanity. Thank you.
MARCH 11, 2013. BUS #7, HALIFAX NOVA SCOTIA.
I just finished a 12 hour shift at the restaurant I work at. I think the kid sitting behind me is confused as to why I picked up a piece of paper and took a picture of it. The letter was a nice reminder that I should celebrate my successes, big or tiny. Here’s to you, too! Xoxo, Chantel
MARCH 8, 2013. LONDON, UK.
Location lot 613 at kavinsky album release party. Thanks for making this night that much more memorable!!
MARCH 8, 2013. U STREET, WASHINGTON, DC.
This was the most wonderful surprise!! I have been super stressed out waiting for acceptance letters from law schools, as I have not been able to find a job since graduating from college. “A delay is not a denial!” was the perfect message from a stranger to keep my hopes up!! It was almost as if the writer knew exactly what I needed to hear during the turmoil I’m going through. Thank you, whomever you are, for taking the time to write this love letter!! I plan on writing my own love letter and passing the love along!!
MARCH 7, 2013. HONOLULU, HAWAII.
At the library in search of the book True Believer by Nicholas Sparks, my sister found a little enveloped stashed between the pages. We both opened it up to a card and read it in the aisle surrounded by millions of books. It was the sweetest thing to read. It made my month after struggling so much with my own personal issues. whoever you are, thank you. you gave me the courage to just keep going.
MARCH 7, 2013. SHARON, MA.
This morning our reference librarian found this letter on a table in the Young Adult section. Many people think librarians sit around reading books all day, but we do much, much more and get caught in the daily grind the same as any other job. Finding this note was a sweet reminder that we need to look around every now and then to remind ourselves that we have so much to share with our community. We plan on putting the note back in the YA section with the hope it will brighten the day for the library patron who finds it.
MARCH 4, 2013. NORTH HOLLYWOOD, CA.
So I was at a used bookstore in North Hollywood and was just leaving and stopped to look at the ads and stuff posted on the pinboard and I saw this orange evnvelope just laying there. I thought maybe someone forgot their bday card. So I picked and it said it was for me! Yes, me! And so I opened it and it had an insert from Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll and a little envelope with flowers seeds in it to plant with instructions. My reaction to this was complete joy. It was perfect and I felt so lucky. The message of the card was at the perfect time because I really needed to hear that. I cannot thank whoever left this beautiful little gift.
MARCH 4, 2013. DREXEL UNIVERSITY
I’m a student at Drexel University, and on March 4th I found a letter in my residence hall stairwell. It was filled with inspiring, wonderful quotes, and it came at such a good time-
MARCH 2, 2013. MOUNT HOLYOKE COLLEGE
MARCH 1, 2013. OAK RIDGE, TN.
The note was on the treadmill at the gym where I go a few days a week
to help save my sanity. Hmm, do I open the envelope, or is it for
someone else? Finally giving in to curiosity, I pried up the flap and
peeked inside. It was a lovely random-act-of-kindness message of
validation. I had to stifle my tears so that I wouldn’t snot all over
the equipment. The note came at a time when I really needed some love.
I’ve been struggling for months to find a job, my husband recently
filed for divorce, my friends and family are far away, and I am
worried about many things including a large chunk of student loan
debt, my aging vehicle, and the ability to care for my critter
companions. It’s so nice to receive some positive vibes. Thank you,
“sloppy pen pal” friend.
FEBRUARY 26, 2013. UNIVERSITY OF OREGON.
Found this gem outside a lecture hall at the University of Oregon. Really brightened my day!
FEBRUARY 24, 2013. LONDON, ENGLAND.
So my family and I were on vacation in London, I’ll be honest I had a pretty bad morning and was feeling really bad about my self. We were walking past a gift shop and my mom stopped to look at postcards, when I noticed a letter.
I smiled so hard, I felt so touched, I knew it was meant for me, even if the person who wrote it didn’t mean it for me fate had brought me there that day, I knew that I was where I was supposed to be, and ultimately I’m on the right track. Even though my selfish heart told me to take the note and save it, I left it there, so hopefully whoever passes by will take a glance and feel just that much better about life.
FEBRUARY 24, 2013. AUKLAND, NEW ZEALAND.
I had been having a rather bad day, after waking up with a hangover and grumpy parents, when I found a letter from a stranger in the Auckland Art Gallery, wedged between two books. It instantly made my day better, and inspired me to do the same for a stranger.
“If you have found me- I’M YOURS!”
“Life doesn’t always serve out what we want. I didn’t make the shortlist for a job I desperately wanted. 100 applicants. Argh! But it is a beautiful day, the sun is shining, people are smiling, and I have a great evening ahead. Whoever you are, take a moment now (right now) and look around. What beauty do you see? What/who is the magic in your life? Remember you are loved.
<3 A Friend.”
FEBRUARY 1, 2013. SALEM, OREGON
I love our town and I love you! I was headed back from the gym and was craving a cider, a cherry cider to be specific. So I stopped at a lil place called Ventie’s Basement bar in Salem Oregon, I was in luck, Cherry Cider was on tap tonight. Sitting at the bar alone, deeply saddened by my pending divorce, I was staring at the side of a wood board next to the register the bartender was operating. There were several stickers on the side. There it was in the mix of the stickers, I see this little piece of joy:
JANUARY 31, 2013. STANFORD UNIVERSITY.
found a love letter in the laundry room of my residence hall at Stanford. I was preoccupied thinking about job applications I had to get out that were due soon, and this letter reminded me that there are way more important things than finding summer jobs! Thanks to whoever left it!
JANUARY 31, 2013.
I am going through a very rough time in my personal life for the last couple of months. I was shopping in Target today and on a shelf, I foundthis note that was addressed to “Dear Friend”. It reads as follows:
Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in this world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It is a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing. Never let the odds keep you from doing what you know in your heart you were meant to do.” “May God bless you always” Love, Me.
JANUARY 31, 2013. PANERA. WESTERVILLE, OHIO.
I was just having an okay day but its snowing out. Ive been sick,started school,working like crazy just insanely busy and then today snow. I dont particularly love the snow. So im driving to work (at panera) and Im already late and the snow is making everything slower and icy i get impatient and swerve in and out of a lane to pass slow drivers. Then I start to slide out of control and my brakes arent supporting me stopping before Im going to hit the van in front of me! Thankfully I swerve and drive over a small curb onto a side street with no damage done except to my nerves and ego. Thankful that I was to God for not letting that situation be worse, I got to work in a rush went to the bathroom to change and saw the envelope sitting there. I open it and read it and I couldnt have been more sure that someone is looking out for me and that I am indeed loved. Im very grateful I found this letter!
JANUARY 28, 2013. BOISE, IDAHO.
One of our staff found this letter propped in the hallway of our building – Bronco Elite Athletics in Boise, Idaho. Confused and not sure whether to open it or leave it for another “victim” she passed it off to me! What a sweet reminder to smile J Glad I was too nosy to let it go…
JANUARY 27, 2013. BLUE STATE COFFEE. NEW HAVEN, CT.
My spirits are lifted! I’ve been struggling with my PhD dissertation prospectus all weekend and am still trying to overcome my fear of putting my thoughts down on paper. On my way back from the cafe bathroom, I saw the inviting pink envelope, snatched it, and surreptitiously carried it back to my armchair. The little note told me that I am admirable, strong, and amazing. I chose to take it as a sign. I feel encouraged and determined not to leave this armchair until I have produced pages full of brilliant ideas! Thank you!
JANUARY 26, 2013. LONG BEACH, CALIFORNIA.
Hello! My name is Katie MacNabb and I was super excited to come upon one of your love letters the other day!! This was found very randomly in my opinion… I had to take my car in to have a safety inspection, oil change, etc. aka a whole lot of things needed to be done and I was going to have to wait awhile as it was busy and a Friday afternoon on top of it all. I had been in a bit of a haze the past few days for whatever reason, I think it was the weather as it had gone from summer like weather to real cloudy and rainy. Anyways I was real on edge the other day as I drank a lot of strong coffee that morning and as I walked into the waiting room at the Honda Dealer I spotted the envelope out of the corner of my eye right away that said “This is for you, open it.” At first I thought that it may have been someone’s who was waiting but after I sat there for 2 hours or so and people had filtered in and out quite a bit I became even more intrigued and was drawn to finally just grab the envelope and open it already! I was pleasantly surprised and pretty shocked to find words that couldn’t apply more to my life right now. This sounds silly but I felt like the note had to be left just for me as self-righteous as that sounds but I highly believe in the power of the universe and things happening and coming into our lives at the right time and reason. It really was the perfect words/pick-up/warm fuzzy that I needed. I mean what are the odds that I find this letter sitting in a waiting room waiting on my car to be worked on/serviced!?! I instantly felt an intense sense of joy overcome me and it really made me think fondly of our world and humanity. People should never underestimate the power of a random act of kindness.
JANUARY 25, 2013. WAMPSVILLE, NY.
I am a janitor there on the night shift. I was mopping up all the god awful salt we use in the winter and found this in the ladies bathroom. I was really surprised to find this, particularly because I do something similar to this myself! Mine are a bit simpler, and I stick them on post its around this area. It felt really good to be on the receiving end for once, and its extremely refreshing to see others trying to brighten up the world. So thank you very very very much, this is the perfect time of year to pick peoples spirits back up. I really appreciate it. – Jeph.
JANUARY 22, 2013. NEWTOWN, CT.
I’m from Newtown, CT. My mom found this in her purse shortly after the shooting. It gives me hope that one day we will finally have peace and love.
JANUARY 20, 2013. PORTLAND, OR.
JANUARY 20, 2013. BETHLEHEM, PA.
I found this letter in a Wegman’s bathroom stall, of all places. There have been so many things going on in my life these past few months and they have made me realize so much how important it is to tell people how I feel about them any chance I get and how amazing it feels to hear someone say kind things about you – even when it is a stranger It is so beautiful to know that there are people in this world who are willing to take a few minutes out of their day to brighten someone else’s! Thank you! xo Leah
JANUARY 20, 2013. MONROE, CT.
Found this at the grocery store in the dish washing detergent section. I definitely did a look around to see if there was a hidden camera somewhere. I saw the website at the top and ran home to look up the organization. I LOVE this idea; it made my day and I can’t wait to make some else’s.
JANUARY 19, 2013. LONG ISLAND, NY.
Found this letter in IKEA- Long Island. I was with my best friend and we were building our dream homes with all the lovely things IKEA has to offer. I found it on one of sinks in their showroom. We both took a picture and left it there because we were having a just fine time and knew someone else may need it.
JANUARY 19, 2013. DAYTON, OHIO.
While perusing mags at a Barnes and Noble in Dayton, Ohio. I noticed that tucked Inside an issue of Style At Home, was a tiny envelope with what appeared to be the words, “for you” written out of a fine point sharpie. I was intrigued, and then thought, “what a clever way to sneak in a subscription form” never mind the size. Flipping through the magazine the next morning, the mysterious card appeared again. Curious, I opened it. There was this tiny bundle of energy in me that was hoping it was something more than a ploy at a year long subscription. Inside, a very inspiring, and uplifting message, that held very special meaning for me because just months earlier I had lost someone that I loved dearly. After this event, living made me feel guilty, it seemed unfair for me to be here enjoying life, when this little soul I loved so dearly could never do the same. I will try and “be ALIVE while I am alive.” Thank you Sarah. This movement is amazing and
wonderful, and I too will be writing my own message for someone to find. Lots of love, Tara
JANUARY 18, 2013. ALEXANDRIA, VA.
I found my letter at 7pm, last night – 1/18/2013 – at the Starbuck’s on King Street in Alexandria, Virginia. I’m in the process of getting a divorce after a 20-year marriage. I find myself looking for and finding meaning in everyday events and comments and noticing things that I’ve not paid much attention to before. I’m hyper attuned to the world around me – looking for signs of goodness, wisdom and insight.
I found my letter at the perfect time.
JANUARY 16, 2013.
I found this letter today, January 16th 2013. I was early to work and decided to grab an apple before hand so I wasn’t so hungry. I had decided to go to the service desk to cash out since that is the department I had worked in. While I was waiting in line, I was looking at everything to make sure that the desk was nice and tidy when I saw this letter sticking in with our company policies. I grabbed it nervously because it had no name, it simply said “If you find this~ It’s for you! Really! for you! Read it<3.” I had asked my co-worker if it was a new thing that our store was doing, and we decided that I should open it. Opening this letter was the best thing I could have ever done. Little does this person know, I have been going through a rough time. My uncle is sick again, my school canceled all my classes, and the boy I was seeing is turning into a jerk. I just want to thank whoever wrote me this letter. It really opened up my eyes and even brought me to a few tears. Thank you!
JANUARY 9, 2013. COMMACK, NY.
I was shocked and elated, when I found it was just when I needed to hear it most.
JANUARY 9, 2013. OPELIKA, ALABAMA.
I was in the Opelika Starbucks in Alabama when I stumbled upon this between some napkins at the table I was studying at. It instantly brought tears to my eyes. I’ve been stressing and worrying about things that are out of my control..sometimes the kindness and encouragement of others, even total strangers, can be the best thing in the world. I wasn’t planning on going to Starbucks tonight..in fact I came here on a whim. I couldn’t shake the feeling that it was the place to be… now I know why: I was meant to find this letter.

I found this letter under a loaf of bread in our supermarket in Newtown CT. Thanks – this effort is great, I just lost my job then we had the tragedy in our town, then I find this letter. Wow…..just what I needed.
JANUARY 2, 2013. DOWNTOWN CHICAGO
I was sitting down in the Chicago downtown train station …I had been having one of those days at work, not everything was going as planned, and I was doubting my own capabilities. I am a strong believer in Faith and divine Destiny, so when I saw this card just sitting on the bench I sat down on, I was intrigued. But then…doubt creeped in and I got nervous! There were a lot of people around, and I was afraid this belonged to someone else. So I slowly opened it and what a beautiful message. It said, “Don’t give up on your dreams. You are good enough and they can happen.” This is awesome, and I am so thankful for the encouragement. I TRULY needed it today. God Bless- Lisa
DECEMBER 30, 2012. LAX
I found my letter in the most unexpected of places, somewhere I should never have been. I was flying standby today from DFW to somewhere ANYWHERE in southern California. My airport of choice was LAX, but there was literally no way for me to make it there before New Year Eve. I stood by for a flight to Orange County, that I didn’t have a chance of making. I made it. And though the bathroom was out of commission I was grateful. At the last minute our flight was diverted from John Wayne to LAX, but they weren’t going to let us off of the plane. Then they did. I ran to the airport bathroom feeling all kinds of blessed and then I found it, a card marked “Open me! (yep I mean you)”. I opened it with trepidation tipped the envelope in case of anthrax and glitter fell out and the kindest card tumbled out after it. Some folks on this site found their love note at just the right time an unexpected high in the midst of lows. My love letter came at the end of a day of uncertainty and grace. The perfect cherry on top of a day where I was forced to depend on the kindness of strangers and I found that love can and does come in unexpected places.
NOVEMBER 20, 2012
Today I got my new apartment – except that I didn’t. It was a beautiful apartment, but the previous tenants secretly had pets WITH FLEAS and the owners didn’t know. It was awful. Searching for a new apartment and skipping class because of frustration and forgetting my book (sssshhhhhhh!) I stopped at Starbucks and got my usual white hot chocolate with pumpkin. On the way back to the bathroom I glanced down at the seat by the last table in the corner. On the edge of that chair I found a letter saying “Open me, read me, whoever you are.” Dated for the previous day, I read it and freaked out in happiness. I got back to school, took a photo with it and went to the website at the bottom (at this very moment). I then got a call from my apartment people i’d been looking at, got it, and move in tonight. I AM SO EXCITED. I knew I had hope for humanity for a reason I appreciate this person so much! Thank you!

Hello to everyone at The World Needs More Love Letters
This Saturday I watched the TED talk and was very inspired so I promptly wrote seven short love notes to drop off throughout the week. Sunday morning I volunteered with my parents at the Poudre Canyon Fire Disaster Response Center in Fort Collins, CO. The center is designed to give free clothing and household items to the victims of the Poudre Canyon Fire and what better place could there be to drop off a little love? Before any of the clients arrived I took the card and placed it on top of some shoe boxes then I went about my work. When I left a few hours later no one had picked it up. Later in the evening my mom texted me and said a woman found my card. My mom explained to the woman that I had left it for whoever found it and my mom said that after explaining the woman enjoyed the card even more. Mom my took the woman’s picture (I don’t know her name) and included it in her text to me. It wasn’t a great day for me so it was definitely nice to know that I made someone smile!
NOVEMBER 18, 2012. ONTARIO, CANADA.
Yesterday at work, I saw a piece of paper folded up with the words “if you see me, open me! I’m for you!” written on the top. I was too busy as I was working cash and never got a chance to open it. Then, another coworker of mine pointed it out and asked if I had read it yet. I had said no because I didn’t have chance, but I would now since it had died down. Another coworker and I opened it up and read it, both with smiles stretching upon our faces. I asked where it came from, and another coworker had found it somewhere around our Shoppers Drug Mart (Pond Mills location, London, Ontario, Canada). It was the first Love Letter I had read and I was so excited that someone had done that. I saw the website written on the side, so I wrote it down and Googled it today. I just wanted to write to you and tell you about my wonderful experience, and how much it really CAN change a person’s day. I will definitely be taking part in this during my spare time. Thank you for starting such a wonderful and inspiring… “activity”.

My husband found this letter outside our apartment in Fayetteville, North Carolina. He brought it inside and showed me, it brightened our day!
NOVEMBER 17, 2012. POWAY, CA.
A few weeks ago, I found this letter in my coworkers cart. We were cleaning stuff out, and I guess someone had found this before me and opened it. I was curious, so I opened it too.
OCTOBER 30, 2012. SAN JOSE, CA.
Hello there, I’m a server at a small diner in San Jose Ca. Last night I was bussing a table and I found this letter underneath our condiment holder. At first I was a bit hesitant to open it because I wasn’t sure that it was left behind on purpose. I’m glad I opened it. Thank you for putting a smile on my face and for leaving the table pretty clean .

Found this in a Starbucks in Downtown Chicago, with my co-worker. Now your site is all we’re looking at for the rest of the day, thanks. Productivity = 0.
OCTOBER 10, 2012. MANCHESTER, NH.
I found this letter at a gas station in Manchester, NH. I went to pump gas and it was there. I checked the other pumps and there weren’t any letters on them. I was a little hesitant to pick it up, but when I got home and opened it I was really happy! It was just the pickup I needed!
Thank you so much!

I got back to my dorm room last Sunday and I found this pinned to my door. I have no idea who wrote it but they definitely know me judging by the stuff they specified.
OCTOBER 10, 2012. UCONN. STORRS, CT.
I found this beautiful letter in the hallway of a class building at UConn. It had been a tough weekend for me and a lot of my friends and it’s an understatement to say this brightened the day. It’s comforting to know there are such caring compassionate people out there who just want to make a difference in the day of a stranger. I can’t wait to be a part of this movement myself.

“Today I found a lovely little note outside the main academic building at the University of Denver. I was on the way to yet another meeting and saw an envelope saying “If you can see me, I’m yours.” As I read the little card, my day was instantly made! I can’t wait to pass it on ”Jessie J-

Finder of the Letter: Tyler
“I came out to my parents about a month ago. My mother decided the best thing to do was to tell me I was giving up on my life and throwing the towel in. Needless to say, they didn’t really support my decision to come out. It took me 24 years to finally be ok with who I am. I knew they wouldn’t celebrate with me, but a little support would have been nice.The next day I went into Starbucks and got some Iced VIA Coffee…when I picked up the package I found a love letter. Inside it said, “Keep your chin up. You got that? Good!”Sometimes all you need is to know someone loves you. Thanks. I needed this.”

“Yesterday I was at Deakin University Open Day when I saw a little folded piece of paper casually sitting in between two wood slats on a table. I didn’t realise what it was at first, but then I saw a small snippet of writing on it.
JULY 23, 2012. MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA.
Leaving the office late on a cold winter night in Melbourne, I arrived at my bike to find a gorgeous letter stuck to the seat. It warmed my heart and made my day, thank you to whoever took the time to write it! I wish I had taken a photo of it now – in any case I hope it made the next person as happy as it made me, I passed it on to the bike next to mine Thank you!-Lucy

Hi! My name is Ceci and I have been really down lately and I was casually walking through the park with my dog when I look into a doggie bad holder and found a letter from moreloveletters.com. I want to say thank you for lifting me up and making me smile! The letter is hanging on my mirror so I can see/read it every time I look at my mirror.

I found a love letter about a week ago in a women’s bathroom at my college campus in Chicago, Illinois. I read it and put it back for another person to find. It made me smile and want to join this wonderful movement.Thanks for this, Christina

I found this love letter on on the Q train in New York City while I was headed to work. I am a struggling law student and recently found out that my Mother has metastatic melanoma, so my family and I have been going through a difficult time. This love letter definitely brightened my morning and gave me the push to keep fighting. Thank you to whoever wrote it.- Megan
MAY 21, 2012. CENTRAL OREGON COMMUNITY COLLEGE.
Last week the guy I’ve been engaged to for five years said he wanted to break up with me out of nowhere. We haven’t been fighting but he’s a truck driver so I didn’t get to see him much. I didn’t know anything was wrong. Now he just won’t talk to me. I’ve been crying all week just putting on a brave face and going to college like nothing has changed even though cant breath at times. Today I found a love letter in the bathroom that said not to let anyone tell me I’m not good enough and that I’m worth loving. This was definitely needed right now. Thank you so much
APRIL 12, 2012. ANACORTES, WA.
I found this today in a restroom in the Safeway in Anacortes, Wa. My family and I have been going through a rough time lately and I’ve taken it especially hard. I took a drive south to Anacortes from Bellingham today as a personal day to try and sort things out, and finding this made my day. It completely changed my entire mood more than anyone knows; it was EXACTLY what I needed, as though that person knew I needed to be the one to find it . What you guys do is great and I will never forget this act of kindness! Cannot wait to pass it on!-Amanda E.

I found a letter on a board ride I was doing one afternoon. I was surprised, is there any way to know who left it? Maybe one of your writers? Maybe someone who follows ad likes to spread love? What ever it may be, I obviously found it for a reason. I just wish to know the creator of such a strong letter.

Hi, I had to e-mail you because I am so intrigued by your project. Here’s my little story: yesterday I was having literally the worst (bad bad bad!) day. Then, I walked into a bathroom at my university and found one of these letters. It was so nice and helped me so much…to just feel okay about where I’m at. I should have taken a picture but it didn’t feel right wrecking the anonymity of the moment. I left it where I found it so others could enjoy. I am going to write some letters now. I think what you are doing is the best. Since my part of Florida hasn’t been put on the map, I wanted you to know Pensacola, Florida has letters!
