September marks the five year anniversary since anonymous letters from a mysterious “Hannah” began popping up all over New York City. Her letters were intended for strangers and allowed them to peek into the life Hannah was struggling to live.
“THAT’S THE THING ABOUT DEPRESSION”
“You don’t get to tell it when it comes and goes,” wrote Hannah. To fight through her depression, Hannah decided to leave letters all around the city for people who needed them.
A STORY OF ITS OWN
For Hannah, the pages she filled with her stories of dreams, aspirations, and small beautiful aspects about the city that felt so lonely became bigger than her. They became other peoples’ stories, and they continued to grow.
Hannah decided she wanted to spread her message to more and more people, so that anyone could write their own anonymous love letters and leave them for people to find.
“Somehow that idea took on a life of its own after I blogged about it. My inbox was filled with the most heartbreaking stories I’ve ever encountered after I published a simple question on my blog: Do you need someone to write you a love letter today? Just ask.”
“That one question changed my life forever as I spent the next year writing hundreds of love letters to strangers in all parts of the world. More than just the letters– that question is the reason you and I are here in this space right now. I started More Love Letters three years ago and we’ve become the only global organization out there that blesses individuals–young and old– with bundles of love letters during a time in need. We basically want to create the most miraculous experience for people when they need it most: hundreds of letters of support and encouragement showing up at someone’s door all because someone in their own life loved them enough to just ask for those love letters.”
