Universal Letter Writing Week

Happy Universal Letter Writing Week!  I appreciate that this event is not just a one-day holiday but rather an entire week devoted to sitting down with pen and paper to communicate with the special people in your life.

How will you celebrate this year? 

Here are some ideas of people you could send a letter to during Universal Letter Writing Week:

1.) A college roommate - recall a shared memory
2.) A parent or sibling - tell that person what you appreciate about them
3.) Someone who recently went out of their way to show you kindness
4.) A store where you received excellent customer service
5.) A former teacher of yours - tell them about how they impacted your life
6.) A friend who is struggling - let them know you care
7.) A previous employer where you enjoyed working
8.) A newspaper or magazine - let them know how much you appreciate their publication
9.) Your member of congress - advocate for change (find your representative here)
10.) A pastor - thank them for their service and dedication.  I bet it's not an easy job!
11.) A letter to a nursing home patient.  It doesn't matter if you know them or not, in general mail is appreciated.  You could work together with some children in your life to make cards and drop them off at a nearby nursing home.

What other ideas do you have?
