A Month of Letters Challenge
Write one letter a day for each day the mail runs in February.
This challenge was created in 2010 by a writer who took a month off of electronic communication. I discovered this challenge in 2016 and started with a small goal of improving each year. In 2019, I joined the Admin team and in 2020, I took on a bigger role writing posts and running the Facebook groups and page.

This challenge began in 2013. InCoWriMo is the short name for International Correspondence Writing Month. With an obvious nod to NaNoWriMo for the inspiration, InCoWriMo challenges you to hand-write and mail/deliver one letter, card, note or postcard every day during the month of February.

To coincide with National Letter & Card Writing Month in April, 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.

Mail Missions
Brighten up someone’s day and put a card in the mail for their a milestone event or to lift their spirits when going through tough times. There are generally two types of Mail Missions.

On-going Mail Missions
These on-going mail missions have no specific deadline per se but may have them if it is for a specific project such as Valentine for Vets, Holiday Cards for the Troops, or More Love Letter Bundles. Check specific links for details.

Dated Mail Missions
These mail missions have a specific date the card is for, e.g. a milestone birthday, and will be posted on the date that they are seen, not necessarily the date of the original request. They may be shared from a variety of sources such as other letter writing groups or care homes. BLWS is just sharing the information, and will not be able to answer specific questions about the recipient.
