Because joy is a thing best shared, I’m passing along a follow-up on the call for cards for Miss Phoebe’s 100th birthday. Her birthday was a few days ago and, as of yesterday, she had received 99 cards – and not just received them, but received them with delight and appreciation at being made to feel so special.
Cheryl reports that some of the cards decorate the walls and the rest are tucked into a special new box which is brought out for all visitors to admire. To quote Cheryl, Miss Phoebe is “shining with delight” over the cards. Thank you to all my readers who took the time to add to her happy glow.
More opportunities to make people glow with the joy of letters are on the Scribbling Good page. Happy letter-writing!

I’m signal-boosting a request from my friend Cheryl:
Miss Phoebe is turning 100 in a couple weeks. She doesn’t want a party, but she would welcome cards. If you have a few minutes, perhaps you will send her well-wishes as she celebrates a century of life?
Her address is:
Golden Rule Nursing Home
20806 Bayside Ave.
Rock Hall, MD 21661

In the meantime, if you’re looking for a letter writing project to inspire your next piece of mailart or just wanting to reach out via post, take a look at the opportunities in the Scribbling Good collection I’ve been curating.

I’ve recently received a message from a reader who thought I might be interested in The World Needs More Love Letters. Jackie, you were right! I love this sort of project and really appreciate that you took the time to tell me about it.
The basic idea behind The World Needs More Love Letters is that each and every one of us has the ability to help, support, and encourage other people, especially when they are facing challenging, sad, or hard times. There are many ways to do so, of course; this team of letter writers has chosen love letters and they’d love to have you help them.
I’ve added information to my Scribbling Good page. If your heart, like mine, sings with happiness when it encounters kindness, I recommend you take a look.

Lately I’ve come across a number of letter writing-related opportunities to do good in the world. As a result, I’ve added a new page to the blog so I can compile projects into a quick reference for anyone looking to do a daily good deed while also writing notes, sending packages, and generally spreading sunshine.
Without further ado, I am pleased to announce:
Take a look, let me know about other great projects I should add, and make today’s daily good deed a postally inspired one!
