As its Valentines Day I thought i might share this "little" initiative with you. There is a website called More Love Letters that believes that even in this day and age everyone deserves a little love, even if you do not know them. Simple.

Founded by Hannah Brencher, who started love letter writing back 2010 as a way to lift her spirits and the spirits of others after moving to New York by leaving love letters for random strangers to find then expanded to accepting love letter requests from the wider world. The idea is that you leave a handwritten letter around your hometown with encouraging words to lift the spirits of whomever may find it. All you need is a pen, some stationary and a good heart.
"I’ve discovered that no matter how tough we act, we all still need a love letter from time to time. That even in a world crammed tight into 140 characters and constant status updates, there is a still a great craving for the handwritten note." - Hannah

So what I'm asking is that this Valentines whether you are single, newly loved-up or in a long term relationship write a love letter to a stranger today. Leave it for your local coffee shop barista, put it on a shop shelf, in the cracks of a wall, on a park bench and bring a little joy to someone today who you have never met, and may never meet simply because the world really does need more love letters.
