Every once in a while it’s nice to accomplish something a little unusual. For some, writing a letter a day is a longstanding practice. And then there are those of us who feel a little commitment to an idea goes a long way. And that’s where February comes in.
If you’re going to do something for a whole month, it’s good to tackle the easy one first.
The idea is to send a handwritten letter, card or note to someone every day for the month of February. It doesn’t have to be a novel or even news, it’s entirely up to you what you write.
Most people who have participated in this project over the years have found it a rewarding and enjoyable way to be introduced to ideas and people all over the world and have continued to write and receive letters well into the year.
Interestingly, quite a number of people correspond the year round. Replies and new letters continue to go out well into late August and beyond. In general, people who write regularly welcome opportunity and this could apply to you. If you’d like to write someone from this years event, A list of participants who continue to welcome mail can be found on our address book page.
You don’t have to wait until February if you want to get started today. Put a smile on your face, pick up a pen and you’re off. It couldn’t be more simple than that.
