It’s February so let LetterMo commence!
January’s Love Letters for Seniors project (Cards of Caring – Valentine’s Edition) is coming to an end. With one more week to go until Calgary Meals on Wheels’ deadline, the quota has been filled with extras thanks to the help of friends.
For a week now, I have been getting ready for the start of a new month-long project for February that combines both my love of snail mail and the ever budding hobby of crafting.
How it works: After signing up, a LetterMo participant sends out mail for 23 days in February excluding Sundays where there’s no postal service in some areas. It also includes any reply mail if your recipient decides to send you a letter back.
I am SOOOO ready for this challenge! I found out about this 2 years ago but I had so much going on at the time that I didn’t go through with it. February is going to pick up for me but to help offset the stress, I have a list and I have a plan ^_^ And of course…I’m adding my own twist to this.
I will follow the rules by feeding the mailbox daily (min of 23 days if excluding Sundays). However, the mail will not consists of just letters. Creativity will guide me and it will be a surprise what the recipient will receive. There’s an added twist that I’ve decided to keep private for now too 😉
If you would like to receive a little something from me in the mail, please add your mailing address to my Postable at https://www.postable.com/mgracelyn. I will send mail everywhere in the world as long as there’s postal service available. However I do have a few rules:
I will NOT be sending out the following:
- Application Forms/Sponsorship to come to Canada (I don’t work for Immigration. As a regular citizen, I do not have that kind of influence to pull any strings. Best of luck though!)
- Personal information (No I do not wish to cash that cheque for you)
Other than that, if you are also a LetterMo participant and are looking for someone to send mail to, please comment below. This is going to be an exciting month and I’m excited for what happens from this challenge!
A thought: If everyone sends mail out/into Canada, will it put a dent in helping with Canada Post’s woes?
