"There can always be room for more (love)."
"Its simply about appreciating and loving every person you encounter."
The above quotes are by Ashley Green the founder of
Love Letters 2 Strangers.She was raised in a loving home and blessed with a mother given to writing loving notes. Knowing how wonderful it felt to receive a note, Ashley began leaving them for people she met. The bus driver, coffee server, bank teller, people who looked sad and people who looked happy. She keeps small pieces of paper at the ready in her purse. Sometimes she leaves them randomly, in books, on shelves or benches.
The idea has really taken off and she even runs joy filled workshops for people who struggle to come up with something appropriate to write. For those of us who can't make the workshops, she has a website full of ideas.
There is also feedback from people who have received the notes. Ashley is not out to make money, in fact she received a grant from Edmonton Awesome Foundation because, yes, they thought her idea was AWESOME.
This Valentines Day step up and leave a love letter for a stranger. It would be a beautiful thing to do.
