What Are You Talking About?
Hello Lovelies! Okay, so I came across this project. It was just a little mention in another blog post. It intrigued me so I followed the link. More Love Letters has been around and follows closely to what I have done in the past. I would sometimes leave small encouraging notes behind for strangers. More Love Letters goes beyond this.
There are three ways to participate. Mail Letters, Leave Letters, or Start a Campus Chapter.
People nominate other people who have had or are having difficulties in life. People that need some extra encouragement or that need to know that there are those out in this big world that care. This is where you would come in → You check out the list of people that have been selected and read their story. Write a letter to that person and then mail it in by the due date. Very simple and helps people to keep going strong.
I really love how the website explains leaving letters in their Official Guide To Love Lettering. ← Seriously click the link, don’t be shy 😉
Clicked it yet? No? Then Continue. If yes (wasn’t it cute?!), go to the next section. So basically what they are saying is to get out your stationery and dress it up like it’s going out on a first date. Nice pens, your best handwriting, just make it something. The publication gives you tips on how to start it, what to write, and how to end it. There are also suggestions on where to make the drop.
Write the letter as if to a close friend. Fill it with encouragement or affirmations. What would you like to read in a letter if you found one today? Write that down. Maybe let the person know that they are enough in this world or any kind of pick me up.
Sign it with your first name, maybe “love”, “friend”, or leave it anonymous. Just don’t leave any contact information PLEASE.
Somewhere on the letter write moreloveletters.com so that other can see the site and find out more about this. Maybe even add in #moreloveletters so that they can think to look up others that have shared what they sent or found.
Start A Campus Chapter
This section of the website site is to allow you to apply to bring Campus Cursive to your college/university. It also gives a list of active chapters. Very neat stuff and if you have the commitment to what it takes maybe you should look into it. Bring it into your world so that others may gain from this.
Now You See What I Mean
I love this! It is such a great way to share the love and brighten someone elses day. Seriously, go to the website and check it out. See what pops up in Instagram or Twitter. Ready for my challenge to you?
I want you to leave 2+ love letters a week in your town/city. Make a few to keep with you and leave them in places for others to pick up and read. If you are visiting someplace, leave at least 1.
Want some extra goodie points? Sign up for alerts on the More Love Letters website (or just check back often). Write at least 1 letter to someone and mail it in per batch.
Make sure to share your letters with #moreloveletters and share them here too if you would like. I would love to see them!
As always, I hope your day is filled with Bliss ♥
