Good Afternoon my friends,
Here are the new love letter requests for the month of May! Get out your pens and creativity and begin writing!
We received a request for a bundle for Geneva–a wonderful human. A friend of hers shared with our community:
“Geneva is a special girl. She lights up a room wherever she goes. She is a cashier at McDonalds and her customers adore her! I was talking to a friend one time, who I had no idea went to her McDonalds, and he told me about this girl he sees in the drive thru who smiles and says “Happy Wednesday!” (or happy whatever day it is) every time she sees him. I knew immediately it was Geneva and that another person had been bit by her kindness bug. My friend said her kindness shocks him and makes his day.
Geneva has struggled with depression and anxiety as long as I have known her, but she is a genuine soul who loves hard and never lets the world’s negativity keep her from sharing kindness. Her mom is her best friend and she has been through a lot too. They both struggle with mental health issues, so I think these letters would give an added bonus of encouraging Allison, as well as Geneva.
Recently, Geneva broke up with her boyfriend when his demeaning talk and bad attitude became more than she could handle. I know it devastated her, but I am so proud of her for standing her ground and not letting this guy walk all over her anymore. Geneva needs a love letter bundle because I want to see her receive some of the love she gives away. I want to see her receive a compliment and praise instead of always being the one to give it. I want to help her realize there are people in her corner fighting for her, that she is loved and seen and wanted.”
Arm yourselves with pens + let’s share some joy with Geneva!

Brooke is facing challenging circumstances and needs some hope.
This is part of her story:
“Brooke is a magical unicorn of a human, an onion with so many layers, and has lovable quirks to boot. She lights up a room, is self-deprecating to the MAX, and never lacks the perfect words to say. She remembers even the tiniest details and snippets of conversation from years ago, recalling them at the perfect time, to return with the wittiest remarks. This is what makes her an incredible writer and incredible friend.
Brooke is only in her early thirties and was just diagnosed with brain cancer. This has sent a shockwave through her community of family and friends. Please help us by returning love to our dear friend who needs it more than ever, as she heads into chemo and radiation. Especially in the midst of this pandemic, when it is dangerous for us to visit, give her hugs, and show how we care in person, your words will mean so much and help us support her from afar.”
Grab your pens + let’s write to Brooke!

Betty’s daughter is requesting a bundle of letters for her. She shared about her mother’s loneliness in the following request:
“My mother, Betty, is eighty-six years old. All her siblings have passed away and she no longer has any friends since it’s been so long since she was in the working world. I’m an only child and I live in another city. I see her as often as I can, but I worry about her sitting alone all day. She is a wonderful mother, very supportive and loving. I want her to know she should be proud of that.
My mother is also a feeder of feral cats–too many to mention. She has a darling house that is very neat, but her front and back yards are full of cats and kittens. She knows she’s created a problem by feeding them, but she doesn’t want them to starve. She puts out boxes with blankets for them in the winter, trying desperately to keep them warm and safe. I honestly think she spends more money on their cat food than she does on herself.
I hope you can simply put a smile on her face and let her know she has made a difference to the people in her life, and to all the furry little friends that she has loved.”
Let’s share with Betty our love of cats + so much encouragement!

A friend of Kayla’s is requesting a bundle of love letters for her during a difficult time. She shared with us:
“Kayla has been my best friend and bassoon buddy for the past four years. She is one of the most hardworking and selfless people I have ever met. She has been working during the COVID-19 pandemic, and people have been less than kind to her during this. For the past few weeks she has texted me about work and how hard it is. Recently, her depression has been dragging her down and her family has been very rough on her, especially when it comes to her student loans. She feels trapped in her house with parents who tell her that she is not worthy.
Kayla is the light of many peoples’ lives, but she sees herself as a burden. I am asking for a bundle for Kayla so that she can see what I see: someone who is worthy of love, support, and all the good things that life has to offer.”
Join us in sending some encouragement Kayla’s way!

Krista has found herself facing challenging circumstances recently + could use some encouragement. Her daughter wrote in her request:
“My mom, Krista, is the most hardworking woman I know, she is a super mom! She works as the CEO of our local chamber of commerce and works very hard at her job. She spends her days connecting small businesses in my city, helping them network, and being an advocate for the community.
Since the pandemic has started, my mother works extremely hard, seventeen hours a day, trying to help keep local businesses open and connect them with resources. It is a very stressful time for the small business community, and Krista is giving her all to help as many people as she can. My family and I would appreciate help honoring her tireless commitment to the community. She helps many people every day and is the most loving, kind, and selfless person I know. The work she is currently doing is extremely stressful, difficult, and taxing. She also is dealing with the stress of a teenager, and not having seen her boyfriend or eighty-seven year old mother since the middle of March.
I know that receiving some words of encouragement, support, and love from all over would mean everything to her.”
Join us in sending love + encouragement to Krista during this time!

A friend of Evan’s is requesting a bundle of letters for him as he struggles with some of life’s challenges. They shared:
“Evan is going through a really dark depression. He is pushing away friends and family and not allowing people to help him. He’s stuck. His dreams have been halted. He doesn’t seem to have people in his corner fighting for him because he keeps pushing them to leave. Evan is letting the depression get the best of him. A reminder that love exists in total strangers would be incredibly encouraging.”
Join us as we remind Evan that he is not alone.
