100 Love Letters event!

A text saying "100 Love Letters, 14 feb 2017" with a black envelope with a heart on it underneath the text.

There is so much hate and sadness in our world today, last year was a very sad year for many reasons so I hope you will join me in my endeavour to spread a little love in this world.

This is "100 Love letters" 4th year and I hope that we can brighten the day for people all around the world. Let's show that love always wins!


IDEA

Write a love letter (not a post-it) in your own language and leave it somewhere in a public space, it can be on a bus, in a changing room, school or at the grocery store. You decide where!

HOW MANY?

One (1), but you are free to write as many more as you'd like.

WHY
To brighten someone's day

WHEN
The letter should be left somewhere on February 14th (Valentine's day).

WHO CAN DO THIS?
Everyone!

NEED SOME TIPS AND INSPIRATION?

  • Use a quote as starting point (maybe one from this list: bit.ly/1zgRlfe)
  • Use a song as inspiration
  • What would you want to read in a letter from a stranger? (write that)
  • Write from your heart
  • It doesn't need to be longer than one page but you can write more if you want to
  • Keep it happy and positive
  • Do not assume any struggles or who the person is

Note! you do not need to write your name in the letter, you can write an alias or nothing at all.

HISTORY
I started the project "100 love letters" in 2014 where I hoped 100 people would write a letter and leave in a public space on Valentine's day. BUT! Over 500 people wrote a letter. Afterwards several asked to make this an annual thing.
