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.
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.
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.
