For this month’s Bring Back Paper activity, I’d like to encourage people to send some snail mail out into the world.
It’s all about brightening somebody’s day with a little happy mail, a surprise in the post that is sure to make them smile.
I like to send out snail mail regularly and have several lovely ladies that I write to. I know how nice it is to receive something through the post that’s not a bill or junk mail and I enjoy putting together letters and packages.
If you’re not too sure how to go about this or what to send, I’d suggest posting…
A letter, a recipe, a book, a postcard, a selection of stationery/stickers, a colouring book, a note and a tea bag – people often welcome a cuppa, a packet of seeds, a magazine, some chocolate – come on, we’d all be happy to receive chocolate, wouldn’t we?!
Anything goes! The idea is to make someone smile when they receive some happy mail, and give you a chance to pen a little handwritten note.
So please get your thinking cap on. Who do you know that would appreciate a nice surprise through the post this month? Send one or send a dozen, just get snail mailing! If you do get involved, do feel free to share any photos over on Instagram or Twitter with the #BringBackPaper hash tag as it would be lovely to see them making their way out into the world.
