"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."

A sweet friend of Rapunzel wrote to us requesting letters for her. She writes “Rapunzel is easily the most kind-spirited person that I know. She keeps to-do lists hanging on her door that quite often include tasks such as ‘be kinder’ or ‘be more thankful’ or simply ‘love more’. But she seems to struggle with directing this love inwards. She’s a foster child and spent the majority of her life feeling unworthy of love, yet she still puts more positive energy out into the world than anyone I’ve ever met. She is beautiful beyond measure and instills joy in everyone she meets. Her laugh is infectious and she is often unintentionally awkward but in the most endearing way. It breaks my heart that she doesn’t see it. I write her letters and even poetry but I’m afraid she thinks I’m biased. I’d love for her to feel love cascading in from a myriad of other sources.” Join us in sending light + love to Rapunzel today!

A friend of Julie’s requests that we help celebrate her graduation with her. She writes “Julie and I took German together in high school – such good times! I haven’t seen her since we graduated, but we are friends on Facebook. Through some of her recent posts I learned that she has a chronic illness that affects her daily and has also been recovering from an eating disorder. Needless to say, the past few years have been really difficult for her. She just posted on Facebook that she has officially graduated from university after 9.5 years of starting and stopping. It would be so great if we could bless her with letters of congratulations and reminders that she is beautiful and strong and she can do this thing called life.” Grab your favorite pen + write a letter to Julie today!

Audrey’s loving sister wrote this wonderful request to us “Audrey is the best, most beautiful person and little sister anyone could dream of asking for. She’s a freshman in high school and leaves love letters around her high school and town without any knowledge of this site’s existence, volunteers at the homeless shelter and church, and wishes to be a pastor when she’s older. Everyone she meets is addicted to her charisma and aura, which brings an immediate smile to their faces. She is caring and intelligent, and overall amazing, but doesn’t seem to realize it due to her state of depression. She is currently 22 days self-harm free and counting, and we are all very proud of her, but she isn’t proud of herself. Please show her it’s okay to be humble, but that she deserves to be proud of and happy with herself. We all want her to get better, and I know this would help her along with this incredibly difficult and daunting process that she’s helped so many others with but can’t seem to help herself. We would all be so lost without our little Auds.” Pick up some stationary and help us remind Audrey that she is worth loving.

Vaughn & Lenae’s loving daughter wrote to us to request a bundle for them. She wrote “My parents are two of my favorite people on the planet! They raised me to put other people before myself and I know I wouldn’t be who I am today without their support, love, and encouragement. This May is their 25th wedding anniversary! I would love to bless them with a bundle of love to honor and celebrate their committed love to one another! They are currently in a difficult season with many life transitions. My dad’s mom passed away a few months ago and she was a huge support to both of them. She raised my dad to serve others and he is truly living out that legacy is radiant selflessness. My mom has been going through a challenging time emotionally with a demanding job and anxiety about finances. She is the most compassionate woman I know and she worries about the hearts of others around her. I want her to know that her heart matters too and encourage her not to forget how much she is loved. My parents have given more to others that I can express, it would bless them beyond compare to see some of that love radiate back on them! They would never ask for it, but they are truly worth it!” Let’s celebrate Vaughn & Lenae’s 25th anniversary and send encouragement for the challenging times.

This veteran’s wife is asking for encouragement for her husband as he starts a new chapter of life. She writes “John has recently retired from the US Army after serving almost 22 years. He is humble, loving, compassionate, and selfless; however, he is also struggling to redefine who he is as a “regular” guy. Life outside of what we know has drastically changed and he is trying to find a place in the world. He is my husband, the one God sent to be my helpmate and best friend on this earth, my encouragement and love seem to only frustrate the quest for an identity, new career, foundation, and honestly a whole new beginning for him.” Join us in bringing light + encouragement to John’s new chapter.
