National Letter Writing Month & The Write_On Challenge

April 5, 2016

April is National Letter Writing Month, so we’re taking the Write_On Challenge, writing thirty letters in thirty days. The project was initially created by The Write_On Campaign and sponsored by Egg Press, Chronicle Books, Hello Lucky! and more. Write_On is a campaign to promote joy, creativity, expression, and connection through hand-written correspondence…and if there is anything we are about, it's that! We are proud to be a participant in this important and wonderful campaign that promotes spreading the love to all you know (and even some you don't!)

If you didn't learn about the campaign in time to snag one of their complimentary Write_On kits, that's okay! You can still grab some swag from their shop, like note sheets, a calendar or enamel pin. When it really comes down to it, however, this campaign doesn't cost much–except maybe the price of a stamp–and anyone can participate. If you're showing what you're writing on social media, don't forget to hashtag #write_on so that we can see all the incredible work you are doing, spreading love to friends and family. And if you're in need of supplies, look no further than the cards in our shop, Egg Press or Hello Lucky!

Need some Reasons to Write? We are loving these suggestions that were included in the kit. Here's a few favorites:

• Draw a self portrait and send it to your friend.
• Write to your mom or dad about how they've inspired you.
• Kids love mail, too!
• Write a letter to your future self.
• Send a letter in multiple parts–they have to wait for the next episode!
• Write down your favorite quote and give it to a stranger.
• Decorate the envelope–go wild!
