I was honored to be asked to participate in the More Love Letters annual "12 Days of Love Letter Writing" campaign. 12 days packed to the brim with love letter requests, social media mayhem, giveaways, holiday cheer, and (of course) non-stop scripting of handwritten letters for individuals around the world who are so deserving of some extra holiday cheer.
I'm thrilled to be able to use something that I care about (keeping letter writing alive) to hopefully encourage and brighten someone's day. The best part is that I'm not the only one who has this opportunity. You do too! Please take a moment to read through this letter request and check out the simple steps on how to get involved.
Bundle Recipient: Jenna + Paul
Request: A close friend of Jordan’s parents, Jenna and Paul sent us this request. She writes:
“Jenna + Paul just had a beautiful baby boy with a grin that could melt your heart…Now, at nearly three months old, their baby boy has been diagnosed with Type 1 Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA).
Jenna and Paul will make their little boy's life as normal as possible and it is their hope that he will not experience any pain, he will remain interactive and cognitively normal.
Their little boy is loved by so many people that have never even met him, including myself. In the midst of this devastating news, Jenna and Paul have continued to show unconditional love and nurturing for their son. They are not giving up hope for him, and have used to power of social media to ask for prayers from their closest family and friends. However, I want Jenna, Paul and their baby to know that they are supported by people from all over the world. It’s never too late for a miracle, and I believe a little extra LOVE during the holidays will remind Jenna and Paul that they have been blessed with such a wonderful son.”
I don't know about you but I couldn't wait to send Jenna and Paul a letter, and you can too.
1. Write a letter from your heart with your favorite pen & stationery.
