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.

    Ackkk!!! I sent a letter to Salt Lake City, UT today and completely forgot to include my return address! I was distracted this morning trying to make sure it made it on the mail run. If you get a green envelope with birch trees and an owl on the corner, it was me!!! I’m on the address list!

    All done for another year. I had fun as always. I have only had letters from USA so you guys must be more into this than other parts of the world. “I love the month of February and making acquaintance with like minded people around the world.” Roll on 2019. If you have received a letter from me I’d love to hear back. You would know who you by my quote here… :)
