It been a long and exciting weekend, and I promise to share it all with you very very soon. With that being said, I don’t have a craft to share with you today, but instead I want you challenge you.
As a writer, paper lover, and person who normally gets mail everyday I wanted to share this super idea with you. Mary Rominette Kowal has posted this challenge and so I want to forward the challenge to all of you this month in Febuary.
This challenge is this:
Every day starting with the first day of February write a letter and send it to someone. Simple right? It doesn’t have to be a letter necessarily as we think of a sheet of paper, but could also be a short note in a card, or simply a card that might make someone smile or brighten their day because you thought of them. The catch is… you have to mail it. I know it will cost you $.45 for a stamp in the US, but the cost is little compared to what it might mean to the person on the other side of the mail box.
You can send a letter to a loved one, a friend, or a complete stranger. There are several listings of places where you can send cards and letters to prisioners of war, those who fight to protect our countries, or those in homes and shelters needing to know someone cares.
Stars and Stamps has a great resource for those of you who like to make cards to send to our troops. I highly recommend hoping over to their blog and checking out how you can create and contribute to this effort.
Well it’s time for me to finish unpacking before our weekly bible study group meets. Hopefully, somewhere in my suitcase are some photos to share!
