"I feel like a child at Christmas. I can't wait to bundle all the love letters up and send them to my sister. I wish I could see her face as she reads these little envelopes so full of hope, love, and joy. When I hear about her reaction, you definitely will be included in the fun!"

I was my son’s facilitator and I was blown away. Not only did they come from all over the USA, but Austria, Brazil and New Zealand to name a few. Love Letter Writers are all over the world, more than I ever imagined! He came into my studio and I handed him the bundle wrapped in a red ribbon.

"Today I wrote my 50th letter since joining the More Love Letters movement at the end of February. When I began, I had recently moved and was feeling very lonely. My best friend told me about More Love Letters and I began right away. It helped me to feel less lonely, as well as spread joy around my new city."

"Neither of us could believe the amount of letters or the dedication and love that we saw in them: it sounds cliché, but the MLL community has honestly given me faith in human kindness and generosity, and I'm so so grateful to all the incredible people who gave up their time to write to Evie."

"Thank you all so much for making Timmy's beginning of the school year such an exciting time. I really appreciate your personal words and stories that you shared with him to make 2nd grade an easy transition. He is loving school so far and I think it is because of the added boost of confidence that he was given by all of you. You're a bunch of really cool people- I wish I could meet all of you and thank you face to face."

Christy’s loving sister has written to us and requested letters for her strong and courageous sister. She writes “Christy is a very strong woman, mother, wife, sister and teacher.  She has encouraged so many students through her teaching and coaching cross country and track. She has recently been diagnosed with a very aggressive brain cancer called glioblastoma.  She just recently had most of the tumor removed however the diagnosis of the tumor was not good.  She left in June to try an alternative route in Spain. We are hoping that this will stop the cancers growth and prolong her life.

Christy is a very special woman that shows her love in so many ways as she has continually sacrifices her life for her family and her students.  I would love to show her how loved she is and can not think of a better way than for her to receive letters of encouragement for her and her path in fighting cancer.” Help us encourage Christy with a letter!

A sweet friend of Victoria has requested letters for her and her husband to be. Victoria’s friend writes “I have known Victoria my whole life, since she was born, she is more than a best friend, she is the sister I never had. In August 2014 Victoria will be marrying Sean, the love of her life. The two have had many twists and turns in their relationship, but have stuck together through it all. Both Victoria and Sean are working their way through grad school and planning a wedding through it all has been quite stressful for both of them. Through all of the stress and chaos they have been very supportive of each other, exhibiting the love that they have for each other. Victoria and Sean are preparing to start a new life together, they have all the love in the world for each other, but it is also a scary time, both of them are facing imminent change, everything they have known up until this point is going to be different. There is nothing better than words of encouragement from those who have made it through the hurdles of new marriage. There is nothing more that I would like to do more than present a bundle of letters to the newlyweds, letters filled with words of encouragement and hope for the beginning of their lives together and words of wisdom to help them every day forward.” Join us in sending words of encouragement as Victoria & Sean start their journey of marriage.

This request comes to us from Karen’s fantastic daughter. She writes “My mom Karen is one of the most amazing people I know. Not because of all those cliche reasons you might think. She is not my best friend, she is crazy and emotional but she also is the only person on this earth who has never given up on me. Growing up my mom worked, she took care of a house, a husband, and two kids. When I was 8 I was diagnosed with a chronic illness and she took on a second job to be able to support and take care of me, she never complained. She was always the mom helping out, making costumes, driving me to practice, loving me unconditionally. And after 50+ years of doing that she hit some rough parts, she survived a brain aneurysm, a stroke, and multiple brain surgeries  this greatly affected her ability to process emotions, she got hooked on painkillers, then on alcohol things got bad, and for the first time in her life she put herself first and checked into rehab. A lifetime of taking care of everyone else had taken its toll on her. She now wants to stay sober, and take care of herself she is having to learn how to be selfish and that it’s okay to say no to people. Words of affirmation is her love language and having a bunch of positive words would mean so much to her.” Pick up your favorite pen & script a letter for Karen to remind her how much she is loved.

Brad is on his first deployment with the Air Force and his cousin has asked us to write letters for this awesome guy. His cousin writes “Brad isn’t just a cousin, he’s my role model. He is the smartest, most genuine, down-to-earth and loving person that I know, and he never fails to put everyone else before himself. Even to this day, when he finally gets time off from his duties, he will spend it driving countless miles across the Lonestar State to visit every possible family member and friend that he can. Whether it be meeting up for a hug and dinner or staying the night with grandparents just so he can wake up at the crack of dawn to have life conversations over coffee, he will go out of his way to make every single person he cares about feel special. He always remembers birthdays, he’ll call every chance he has just to chat, and even when life is rough, he keeps an optimistic outlook.

Whether it be words of wisdom from someone who has been in his shoes, words of encouragement to get him through the day, or just a simple joke to make him smile… please help me send Brad the biggest, brightest and BEST love letter(s) of his life. After always putting everyone else first, it’s his turn to feel special. It’s his turn to feel loved. And it is his turn to receive that optimistic outlook that he continuously shines on others.” Unite with us to bring light & love to Brad while he is deployed.

This request came from a loyal friend of Bryony. Her friend writes “This girl is absolutely incredible and has stood by me for 8 years through all the ups and downs. Life is really not treating her well at the moment, she’s been struggling with severe depression and anxiety for the past 3 years since her dad’s death. Her current family life is pretty shocking, with an emotionally abusive step father always on her case and a fairly non-communicative and disintegrated family set up- she mainly relies on herself for essentials and support. I love this girl more than I can put into words but there’s only so much I can do to try and help her. I think she would really really appreciate support from strangers around the world because it would remind her that she’s not alone despite the troubles that she is dealing with in her life, things will get better and that she is loved. It pains me to try and get her to believe all of that so I think the more people she hears it from, hopefully the sooner the day will come when she can truly believe in herself and happiness.” Write a letter to Bryony and help bring some sunshine into her day.
