Marie’s son is requesting a birthday bundle for her this year, as she is reaching a special milestone. He wrote in his nomination:
“I have started a birthday card campaign for my mom, Marie, who will be ninety years old on Sunday August 30, 2020! I had been planning a birthday celebration for her at the long-term care facility she resides in. As we all know though, COVID-19 came along and threw everything into chaos. The care facility my mom lives in went into lockdown and now restricts visitors.
I have not seen my mom face to face since February. However, Marie shares a room at the facility with her only daughter, Teresa, my sister. Teresa has lived with cerebral palsy her entire life, and is now sixty-six years old. My mother, and my late father, cared for my sister throughout her life. After my dad passed away in 2013, from complications of Alzheimer’s Disease. Unable to care for my sister on her own, Teresa entered the nursing facility first in 2014, and as my mom’s health declined, she too entered the same facility in 2016.
This is my effort to make mom’s 90th birthday a happy occasion. I hope to flood my mom’s room with cards and birthday wishes.”
Let’s shower Marie with love for her birthday!

Payton’s aunt reached out to us and asked for him to receive a bundle of letters during a difficult season of life. She shared:
“My twenty year old nephew Payton has been struggling for the last four years. He’s a sensitive soul who has lived through some devastating events, and he can’t seem to find a sense of direction for his life. He feels lost, depressed, and unmoored. He struggles with depression and drug addiction. He recently completed a rehab program, is sober, gained back much of the weight he had lost, and seems to be committed to taking care of himself. He needs support though and I want him to know that he is loved and not alone.
Of course, as his aunt, my heart is broken to see Payton suffering. I remember him as a wonderful kid who was always quick to make a friend, good at sports, kind hearted, and hilarious. I know Payton is still this person, but he doesn’t seem to see it–he struggles with self-worth, feeling lost in the world, and not being enough. He needs encouragement that he can get his life on to a path of happiness.”
Join us in penning letters of encouragement + hope to Payton!

Judith has reached out to our community and is asking for a bundle for her friend during some challenges + tragedies. She shared with us:
“My friend Toshia is an amazing woman. When I got pregnant with my son, I knew I would be unable to care for him properly, so Toshia agreed to give him a home with her family. And she was already a single mother of two! She is relentless in giving her children and grandchildren the tools in life to be successful.
Ms. Toshia has had her inner light diminished over the course of the last four years though. She was unable to complete her nursing degree after a ten year pursuit, she was robbed at gunpoint, and she had a stroke, amongst other medical issues. She puts up a good front, but I know she is struggling with PTSD, severe anxiety, depression, and fear. Please help me remind her that she is courageous, she is not invisible, and not alone.”
Letters are welcome in English and Spanish.
Grab your pens + let’s offer Toshia some written courage!

Trevor’s older brother wanted us to know this about him:
“Trevor is an incredibly talented musician who’s had a tough time finding his own path in life. His whole life, Trevor has faced many battles both internally and externally, from depression and anxiety, to tremendous loss.
If you could meet Trevor in person you would see that he lights up a room, not just with his smile but with his phenomenal guitar skills that’s why I want Trevor to receive these letters. He deserves to be lit up and encouraged the way he does for others. This month especially, Trevor is facing challenges like never before, and I know that letters from folks around the world will bring the much needed life, back into his life.”
Join us in rallying around Trevor to remind him how awesome he is!

Two sweet granddaughters brought us this request for their loving grandmother. They wrote:
“Yvonne (or Nanna, as she is affectionately called by her grandkids, both related and honorary) is one of the most devoted individuals you will ever meet. Her life overflows with love for her family and friends. She is a woman of faith, a mentor and inspiration to many. You can often find her in the kitchen baking bread or caring for her cat named Arnie.
Two years ago, she lost her husband of 57 years. She and our grandpa were inseparable, and his passing left a void that is impossible to fill. The transition to life as a widow has been difficult and made even harder this year by the pandemic and subsequent quarantine. She loves receiving mail and staying connected with those she loves. We know she would love being the recipient of some additional joy and encouragement from the More Love Letters community!”
Let’s join together and shower Yvonne with so much love!

Jean is struggling with feeling lonely + worthless, and she deserves a bundle of letters! Her nomination reads:
“Jean is a hospice nurse, a mother of four, grandmother of four, and an incredibly kind, selfless person. She has continued to work during the pandemic, but has confessed to feeling worthless, despite efforts on part of her children to cheer her up. She has been alienated by her family for caring for the sick and dying. Please help me to let her know that she is loved and is making such a difference to the world.”
Let’s join together + remind Jean of her value through a bundle of love letters.
