February - reach out and write!

February - Write to those you love or like or those who you want to make a change / support 

  •  Unknown to many people, there are several not-for-profit companies and groups whose goal is to provide support for those who are suffering from cancer. One of these groups is called 'Chemo Angels' where the 'Angel' (person who has signed up to the scheme) sends cards and letters to a patient who has cancer by way of support, cheering them up etc. I did this myself last year. Anybody who signs up is usually paired with somebody who has the same religious view point and lives in the same country - to make it easier to send letters on a regular basis.

  • February in certain circles is also the month of the letter writing challenge, to encourage people to write letters instead of texting or emailing. The goal is to write one letter a day. So instead of texting a friend to see if they want coffee next week, send them a charming note card instead. Found a product you really like? then send a letter to the company telling them how much you like it. Angry about a change in laws or want to make a change in your constituency? then write to your local MP and tell them about it. If you are interested in this challenge, please register at:
