{write}

You may (or may not) know that one of my favourite hobbies is writing letters {and I do love receiving them too}, at my last count I have around 13 snailmail friends but probably write more often to 9 or 10...

I love to follow the stories on More Love Letters, it really is wonderful how a handwritten letter can cheer your day, knowing that someone has taken the time to think about what they want to write and to write and post it to you. It's a simple treasure that everyone can do.

Recently on More Love Letters a request was posted... here it is:

Via Founder Hannah, anyone looking to send love + encouragement during this difficult time in Oklahoma should please feel free to participate in this mission: 

Madison Hake, the president of the OU Campus Cursive chapter for The World Needs More Love Letters wrote last night: "As many of you know, a devastating tornado ripped through our community on May 20, 2013. Our community is stricken with grief, as a majority of the death count came from a local elementary school being leveled. If you would like to send letters, you can mail them to the address below and I will be sure they are passed out to community members. Anything and everything helps. Thank you all so much."

Letters can be mailed to:

Campus Cursive
Oklahoma University
616 West 6th Avenue
Bristow, OK, 74010

Please consider sharing a little love in a time of such devastation down in Oklahoma.

Can you spare a few minutes to write a letter of hope and encouragement to bring a little sunshine into someone's life in this time of such devastation?  I hope you can...
