As we’re sure you all know, April is National Letter and Card Writing Month. In 2001, it was officially designated by the U.S. Postal Service as National Card and Letter Writing Month “to raise awareness of the importance and historical significance of card and letter writing.”
Egg Press in Portland started the Write_On campaign in 2014 to challenge their family and friends to write 30 letters/cards in 30 days. Check out the website for a list of great resources from trackers, envelope liners, reasons to write and tools. Follow @EggPress and the #Write_On tag on Instagram so you don’t miss out on inspiration, letter-writing prompts, and some fun giveaways* of Sakura pens! They also have an active Write_On Facebook group full of friendly folks (including several Letter Moians!) to link up with new pen pals, share your favourite stamps, and cheer each other on throughout the month’s challenge!
Did you finish writing to all of your LetterMo penpals and are looking for someone else to write? Perhaps check out our #MailMission page, and write a letter or card to someone who would appreciate a smile in the mail. Write_On also has a list of people in need of some kind words.
Please share and tag your mail-errific efforts this April on your posts on Instagram or in the daily mail call in the LetterMo Facebook group so we can cheer you on:
