I first heard about this movement last year. You can read my initial post I made back in January 2014. The World Needs More Love Letters website has evolved as has the amount of letters and letter writing campaigns over the past year+. It’s still amazing and it’s going strong. Hannah’s back story is so simple, yet so inspiring.
This book contains 40 sheets of stationery for an all-in-one letter and envelope. The patterned paper is really colorful and lovely. Just inside the front and back cover are letter writing ideas.
19. Mistakes are a part of the journey, but don’t you forget to say “sorry.” Write an apology you hope will mend the heart.
26. Not in love just yet? This love letter is reserved for that one-day, someday someone. Sign it, date it, and keep it for when you fall hard.
Simply choose which patterned paper strikes your fancy and easily remove it from the self-mailer stationary pad. Write a letter, fold up the bottom half, moisten the glue strip, fold over and seal. It’s that simple. The end result is quick, easy and beautiful. Also included is a place to write the address, place a stamp, and wafer stickers to seal the sides. This all-in-one stationery pad is well worth it. It is perfect for writing letters during spring break, summer vacation, or if you’re traveling. If you’re searching for a unique gift idea, look no further. 5 stars!
Hannah Brechner has always loved that her family communicates via handwritten letters. In October of 2010, she began writing love letters intended for strangers and tucking them away in libraries and cafes across New York City, for people to randomly discover. Soon, she offered on her blog HannahBrencher.com to write a letter to anyone who needed one. Over the next year, she mailed out more than 400 hand-penned letters. Today she runs The World Needs More Love Letters, a letter exchange dedicated to connecting strangers across the globe through the art of letter writing.
In addition, Brencher works as a copywriter and creative consultant, helping brands inject human touches into their communications plans.
I received this book from Blogging for Books, for this review.
