goodpens posted a topic in The Write StuffHi Pen Friends, Someone close to me is among the people in the current batch of letter requests posted at The World Needs More Love Letters. I'd love it if this person gets a huge outpouring of love and mail. Please consider writing! It is a great way to put all of your delicious, fun, gorgeous pens and ink to use! From their website: "The World Needs More Love Letters is a global organization using the power behind social media to write and mail letters to strangers all over the world. Not-for-profit and completely mission driven, we let anyone nominate someone in need of a love letter bundle. We pick stories that resonate. You get the chance to write a letter and mail it in. The task is small but the impact is greater than you can imagine." Information about the recipients, including mailing addresses: http://www.moreloveletters.com/the-letter-requests/. The postmark deadline for the current letter requests is September 5th. I'm not going to say which of the 6 people getting "bundles" is the one I know. It'd be great if that person gets lots of mail, but I also think the other 5 are super-deserving. (I'm writing to the others in this batch, too.) So please read through them and respond to the request that feels right to you. Or write to all 6! And keep an eye on the site for the next batch of requests; there is always a list posted (in spans of about 2 weeks at a time) of people who deserve letters from you. FAQs about the organization: http://www.moreloveletters.com/home-alt/ And remember that if you use up some of your ink and stationery, you have a good reason to buy more. Thanks!
This is a bit off topic, but since there are plenty of letter-writers here I figured it'd be a good place to ask. I need to send a letter to Vancouver, BC from Tacoma, WA. Not very distant at all. The USPS website doesn't give any details about delivery times for first class, but I wondered if anybody had a general idea as to the time it will take to arrive. I want to time the letter to arrive in a 3-day period, if possible. Thanks.
