Hi Everyone!! Here are August love letter requests! Please get your pens and start sharing some love! Let’s make the world a kinder place! If you know a friend that is having a hard time send them a letter of ❤️! I will tell you everyone loves receiving a letter in the mail that is decorated and creative!!!
Brittnee’s mother reached out to us to share part of her story. She wrote:
“My daughter is an amazing woman. She has heart, compassion, and a gift for kindness, yet she is struggling to find herself. In high school she was one heck of an outgoing, sassy person, but one day she opened up to me that she had been molested. She began to struggle with sadness, insecurity, and depression.
Brittnee has been in therapy and has worked through a lot, but needs to realize that she can do anything and be anything she sets her mind to. She is healing, but could really use help to understand how valuable she is and how wonderful life can still be. She has come out about this experience on social media, which has given voice to other women–and even some men–to speak up. That lion’s roar is still inside of this girl and I would love help getting that back out!”
Grab your pens and let’s send Brittnee some much-deserved love!

Halimah’s son has sent us a heartfelt nomination for his mother to receive a bundle of letters. He shared with us:
“My mother is one of the kindest and most selfless people I know. Like her mother and grandmother–who I was also raised by–she would give the skin off of her back for anybody, but especially her family. She has recently gone through a divorce. Although she is grateful to be out of a situation that wasn’t completely working, she doesn’t like being alone. Also, two years ago she lost both of her parents within six months of each other. This was a monumental loss for her, especially because her and her mother were extremely close and it was unexpected.
As her only son, I just want to make sure she feels loved and feels inspired to live life. I would love for my mother, who gives her support and energy and love to so many, to receive that support, energy, and love right back. Also I know she would be wowed by the simple existence of this organization, and would be tickled pink to receive a bundle. She loves arts and crafts and writing, and just receiving envelopes with her name alone on them would bring her immense joy.”
Let’s send Halimah all that support, energy, and love–and all the envelopes with her name on them!

Bettie is in the midst of some transitions, and could use some encouragement. Her daughter wrote:
“My mother, Bettie, had a hip replacement after an accident earlier this year and was unable to move back to her apartment. She has been cared for by my sister and brother-in-law during her recovery and the current quarantine. She is moving to an assisted living complex in early August though, and we feel as if our eighty-eight year old Mom is going away to college! She could use some bundles of kindness and encouragement during this transition. Bettie has given so much love to others in her life that she would really appreciate this and be tickled pink–her favorite color!”
Let’s send some love + joy to Bettie!

Damian is struggling with his identity and self-worth. He was nominated for a bundle with the following request:
“My son Damian is thirty-three years old. When he was four, he was diagnosed with ADD and a slight learning disability. School was difficult for him, along with making friends. It has been hard for him to break out on his own, but his issues are compensated for by tolerance and common sense. He cares deeply about the underdog.
For example, my own late mother was schizophrenic. Everything about her was bizarre. When we took her on an outing, strangers openly gaped. But her odd ways never mattered to Damian; unfailingly, he treated her with affection and thoughtfulness. In his eyes, she was ‘just Judy.’
At times, Damian suffers from depression and anxiety. Although he is not necessarily successful by the world’s standards, Damian is remarkable for his compassion and thoughtfulness. Some positive letters would help him feel hopeful.”
Please join us in sharing with Damian hope + encouragement!

Rachel is dealing with some challenging circumstances and could use some support. A friend of hers shared with us:
“I met Rachel on the first day of college as roommates in 2009, and we’ve been extremely close ever since then. Rachel lost her dad to cancer suddenly in mid-December of our senior year; it was sudden and absolutely horrible. They were incredibly close and had an extraordinary father-daughter bond. For as long as I can remember, her phone background has been a picture in black and white of her as a child with her parents hugging her while she smiles radiantly. Although I know Rachel still has moments as that beaming little girl, the stress and responsibility she currently bears is immense.
Rachel is her mother’s primary caretaker. Her mom has suffered from Parkinson’s for many years and has recently undergone surgery to hopefully improve her condition and quality of life. I deeply wish for Rachel to know she is not alone; the loss of her dad and her mother’s current suffering are beyond painful. It would mean the world for her to receive support from a loving community.”
Join us as we encourage + send love to Rachel!
