"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."

Joe’s loving daughter wrote to us requesting letters for her father. She wrote “For the better part of my teen years my father raised my sisters and I, essentially on his own. That’s right one man, three teenage daughters. Wanting us to each have our own space he gave us each one of the three bedrooms in the house and slept on the living room couch for years. At 42, after all three of his daughters were out of the home, my father welcomed a son into the world. Now, five years later he is on his own with my little brother and doing everything he can to provide a loving, stable and creative home. My brother is a mini version of my dad and looks up to him as his hero. Still being a single parent comes with trials and errors. There is no manual and no days off. I can tell there are days when he is exhausted, but I know he wouldn’t trade any of it. If you wouldn’t mind sending him a letter with encouragement and love to help him navigate the new territory of raising a son and round two of single parenting.” Join us in scripting a letter for this amazing dad!

This request came to us through Paula’s sweet sister. Her sister writes “My sister Paula is 30 years old – she has a 4 year old son. In December 2013 Paula became very ill and after many trips to the doctor, it was discovered that Paula had Leukemia. It was a very hard experience for her and the treatment knocked her around; she had a long stay in hospital and saw some hard days. Paula has been given the good news that her blood results are going back to normal and now she is working on getting her spirit back to where it was before her illness. Paula is at a point where she has a second chance at life and I think she needs some words of encouragement to help her find the courage she needs to make the changes necessary to enjoy the second chapter of her life.” Join us in sending light & love to Paula!

Caleb’s kind friend has requested letters to help remind him of all the good things in the world. His friend wrote to us “About a year ago, he decided to follow his adventurous instinct and moved here, without even knowing anyone or having a place. In such a short time, he has touched the lives of many, including myself.  Caleb has become one of the best friends I have ever had. He is the sort of friend that will go out of his way to make sure you are feeling great and that is how he’s made friends in this new place. Not only is he kind to the people he knows, but even to strangers. He tries to bring a smile to everyone’s face, and as he say’s “give people a reason to smile about”. Despite of all the hardships he’s been through in his life, he’s managed to become an accomplished professional, a mentor for many, and a source of positive energy for those who know him. Still, sometimes I can see sadness as he misses his friends and family back in his hometown. He always sees the good things in the world, and has always the best attitude. Every day, I am amazed at how this kid, as I like to call him, has grown into such an amazing person, in spite of an environment that told him he couldn’t. For this, and many more reasons I believe, a letter bundle will make him continue to believe in all the good things in the world and will bring a smile to his face, because he will receive some of that love that he gives everyone.” Let’s bring a huge smile to Caleb’s face!

Cecilia’s loving sister has requested letters for her. Cecilia’s sister writes “Growing up, we always knew Cele was a little bit different. She moved to the beat of her own spunky drum. She was outgoing with a bubbly and unique personality that was hard to bottle up. Little did my family know, she was battling something none of us could have ever imagined. Anorexia. Depression. Anxiety. Things took a turn for the worse when she began high school- where appearances and fitting in seemed to really matter. Cecilia tried to work through the pain she hid inside herself by helping others- she began her own organization as a 16 year old by rescuing stray dogs and helping them find owners. After high school she headed to college to pursue her other true love- soccer. One injury later and that career came to a crashing halt. She lost her scholarship and her friends. She was crushed. She transferred schools and joined a sorority- she SEEMED happy again. She came home one break looking so unfathomably thin she was almost unrecognizable. Finally Cecilia admitted everything to my parents. A confession loaded with unnecessary apologies for adding stress onto our family. She began therapy and was formally diagnosed with anorexia. Cecilia has spent the last year going in and out of treatment centers- all trying to quiet the monster inside her head that tells her she isn’t worthy of love. That she deserves nothing. Through it all, her faith has remained steadfast; she has never stopped fighting or putting on a brave face, and she has never stopped giving love to the people around her. But she has never let herself receive it either. She wants more than anything to finish classes and graduate and have a career but this disease is ruthless and she cannot return to a normal life until she beats it. Currently, my sister is staying in a treatment center in a big city with no family or friends nearby and I know she feels alone. And guilty for putting my family through such a tough situation. I love my sister with my whole heart and know she deserves everything that is good in this world.” Grab your favorite pen and help us show Cecilia that she is worth every ounce of love she receives.

A close friend has of Scott has written in to us asking for letters on his behalf. She wrote “Scott is such an amazing and dedicated guy. He has worked his whole life to reach his goal of becoming a police officer for NYPD. It’s been his dream since he was 7. Scott has recently been laid off from his job as a security officer. He is 90% through the process of becoming a cop and may be in the January 2015 police academy. He is slowly sinking into depression due to not having a steady income and stressing about what to do now. He really could use an outpouring of love and encouragement to not give up!” Put your pen to paper and help us bring some encouragement into Scott’s life.
