Change the World One Letter at a Time!

Be a part of something big. This summer(2014) I will be writing a letter a day to various people. I am challenging each of you(I am assuming you are here because you got one of my letters) to write a letter to somebody. This way, we can make a change for good in the world and we all can feel good about it!

Letters everywhere

I haven't been good at updating this blog. 

If you have joined in, comment below. I'd love to hear about who you wrote to and why or just how it felt to get real mail. 

I have skipped a day here and there but have been pretty good at writing daily for the most part. It's fun to write letters. 

Well. Summer awaits. Get out there because winter comes too soon.

The Letter Experiment

Hi Folks-
If you are here, you probably received a letter from me. I love letters. There is nothing like getting a real, handwritten letter in the mail. I hardly ever get what I call "real" mail these days, but I get a whole lot of junk in the mail. My husband likes to refer to that kind of mail as, "The postal service's bread and butter."  He has a point, advertisements probably keep the postal service going, seeing people don't send letters to each other anymore. It is just too easy to email or text. It kind of makes me sad to think that putting pen to paper is slowly dying out in our digitized social media society. 

So, that's why I've started this experiment. I want to send happy feelings to people as they get my letters in the mail. I want to share with others the delight of opening the mailbox and finding something more than junk mail in their mailbox.  This summer, I am going to send out a letter each day the mail service picks up mail. That is six times a week(at least, I may be ambisious and go for more than one some days!).

This is also a pay it forward kind of deal. You are not obligated to write a letter to me, even though I with graciously take them. You are the boss of yourself and don't even have to write to somebody in your sphere, but I challenge you to do so. Remember how good it felt to get that letter from me? Don't you think somebody else deserves that feeling?  Maybe it's your mom, or crazy Aunt Sally. Maybe it is a complete stranger who you feel like making a non-stranger.  It might even be a soldier who deserves some thanks and recognition or somebody who has been nice to you, even when it was hard to be nice to you. You can be bold and make a difference in somebody's life, or you could not.  It's really up to you, but I really think the ripples of this little idea that I came up with could be epic.  We could bring a little light into the darkness that seems to be pretty prevailant in our world today.  So many people need light in their lives these days.  Make a difference, one letter at a time.

Thanks for stopping by.  Check back.  I might create a twitter account that ties to this crazy wonderful adventure.  Have a great day and seriously, think about writinig one little letter.  We could change the world here people.

Always experimenting.

I love to get mail. It isn't summer, but I would still love to head from you. If you write me a postcard, I will send you one in return. Thanks for changing the world one postcard at a time!

Let the Experiement Begin Again!

Here we are in summer.  That means that Alice is in full summer mode(well at least she will be when summer school is over on Thursday!).  This means she is up to no good.  Just kidding, it means that she is off to the summer of adventure.  Soon she will be traveling with her new husband, Reuben, to the land of cheese with many pitstops along the route.  She loves to buy postcards and brighten people's day.  Don't you want to be one of those people?  I knew it.  Send her an email and she will write down your address and send you a postcard soon.  Also, she will email you her address and instantly you have a new pen pal.

Alice really misses the days when she would correspond with friends and family via snail mail and every summer she finds that this is a great way to reconnect both to her past and to her favorite peeps!

So, what you waiting for?  Email Alice( and look for the coolest postcard.  This year's contest will include prizes to the furthest away sent postcard, the 1st celebrity prize, and the most funny/creative postcard.   The winners will get a prize!  Last year, it was a very cool t-shirt.  Who knows what the greatness will bring this year?

And Alice never really understands why she sometimes talks about herself in the third person.  Random!
