Grab Your Cocoa and Start Scripting
A few weeks ago, I shared my FIRST love letter as part of the More Love Letters movement. Today kicks off an extra-special event--the biggest campaign MLL hosts each year: The 12 Days of Love Letter Writing. Mark your calendars from December 9-20th, grab some cocoa, and start scripting!
The campaign is simple:
Twelve days. Twelve individuals. One purpose.
Each day, a few bloggers will share a most deserving individual who needs your love letters. (Be sure to stop by The Modern Austen on Friday!) You'll have until December 20th to get these words of hope into the mail in time for Christmas. Imagine waking up to a pile of letters with YOUR name on it. Letters from strangers who know what you're going through and know what you need. Letters that speak directly to your soul and allow the broken pieces to come back together again.
You can give that gift this Christmas simply by picking up a pen and a piece of paper.
Does it feel weird writing to a stranger? Yes. Does it seem silly to send love to someone you've never met? Probably. Does it make a difference? Absolutely. I promise you that while you throw your heart into these letters, you will walk away changed.
Want the requests sent directly to your email each day? Sign up here.
Before I go, in one HALF HOUR (8:00-10:00 p.m. EST), you can join me and tons of friends for the 12 Days of Love Letters Twitter Kick-Off Bash! Expect letter requests, goodies, giveaways, and holiday cheer! I'll see you there @themodernausten!
