Did you know that Sunday, January 8, 2012 marks the start to another National Letter Writing Week? It lasts, of course, until Sunday, January 15, 2012 and is awesome for a lot of reasons but I’ll give 5.
1) Everyone loves receiving something in their mailbox other than a bill – especially right after Christmas.
2) It gets you writing!
3) It gets your receiver reading!
4) It has them thinking of you unexpectedly and that is good for anyone’s spirit.
5) Revives the postal service. We’ve all been slacking with forming texts that Shakespeare would see as gibberish (you know, that author who is world famous but known for his lack of perfect English, only because the language has gotten out of control?)
Oh, and 6!
It only takes a minute or two to write and another to send but lasts at least a day!
Make it even easier and spread the word of literacy through my Fill in the Blank Letters and send an extra one to ensure you receive a reply!
Come on… how many chain emails do you receive now with 20 addresses shared with everyone? Ensure your address doesn’t get to a stranger this year by only sending to one person and make it extra special!
You’d love to receive a handwritten letter, wouldn’t you?
Thanks for reading and in advance for writing,
