Every year on February 14th, millions of Americans spend extra effort to share joy and affection with their loved ones. With all the flowers, heart-shaped candies and cheesy poems, Valentine’s Day reminds us to tell the important people in our lives how we feel. And the only thing better than a little extra love on February 14th is a lot of love every day of the year.
In this week’s edition of “Women Working to Do Good”, HelloGiggles highlights Hannah Brencher, a young woman spreading love through her organization that has mailed thousands of hand-written notes of love and encouragement to people around the world. The author writes:
“To Brencher, a love letter is a “‘thank you for being alive’ letter” that is “true and from the heart”, which inspired me to write a couple of letters to my best girlfriends this weekend. Brencher herself received a surprise love letter in the beginning stages of her organization, including a packet of stamps and a ‘thank you’.”
Hannah reminds us of the extraordinary power a simple act of affection can hold. She’s a woman working to do good, one love letter at a time. Make sure to show the one you love how much you care.
