It's back! Another round of Love Notes begins July 10th and I can't wait to start. Love Notes is a fun, easy, and free three week project that involves sending one postcard a week to a complete stranger. Yes, you heard that right, sending a bit of snail mail to someone you may not know. When is the last time you received a handwritten note in the mail just for you? My mailbox tends to be filled with bills and mailers, nothing that excites me, but Love Notes changes all of that.
Love Notes was born out of this desire to connect with people, to have individuals share handwritten words, and to have a project that was easy and attainable for anyone. There is no artistic ability needed to participate in this project. Postcards can be bought or made. What matters most is taking the time to send a bit of handwritten love. Words have the power to heal and transform individuals.
In the last round which took place in April we had 300 individuals writing! In that round I hit a milestone mark having at least one person from every state in the USA participate. It was incredible. I hope to be able to do that again. But this project isn't just limited to individuals in the US, nope it's global! I have seen participants from Australia, Bahamas, Canada, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Malta, New Zealand, Slovenia, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.
New this round is the opportunity for children to participate. I have been getting a lot of questions about how children can get involved and have figured out a way to make it happen. If you know a child that is interested please click the check box in the sign up form and I will be contacting you to work through the details.
When I first started this project I had no idea that it would unfold into such a beautiful community of loving, kind, and supportive individuals. My heart opens up more and more during each round as I see the outpouring of kindness for one another. Yes it's true, one postcard can change a persons day.
