Why Write A Letter?

We live in a world where technology is everywhere.  Personalization has disappeared.  We walk around with phones in my hand.  It’s our connection to the outside world.  Human connection sometimes disappear and with that sometimes so does your part of your soul.  The strength and comradery of friendship is still there, but it’s different.  It’s behind a screen.  Human contact is lost.  Did you ever crave the sound of a voice, the feel of a good hug, the warmth of a smile?  That is all lost through technology.  Sometimes all you have left is words.

Words can mean so much if written correctly.  They can make you feel warm inside.  They can make you feel loved. They can make you cry.  So this is what we ask of you: Write.  Just write.
Sit yourself down with a cup of coffee, tea, wine, whiskey… whatever you need to make yourself relax and reflect.  Think about the people in your life who are important to you.  It may be someone who you live with.  It can be someone you grew up it. It can be a mentor, your brother, a friend you lost touch with, anyone.  Just make that list.  Start one by one and sit down with a pen and paper.  Shut off all your distractions.  Sit quietly, think and write.
Write to that person and tell them WHY they matter to you.
HOW they have changed your life by just being a part of it.
Tell them why YOU need them in your life
Show them through YOUR WORDS that they are important not just to you but to this world

Dear _____________,
I’m glad you’re in my life.  #YouMatterToMe.
Make the letter long.  Make it short.  It doesn’t make a difference.  Sign it.  Just pop a stamp on and SEND IT.  Make a difference in someone’s life.  Be vulnerable and show your strength in order to give them strength.  Everyone has battles in their life that they keep silent.  Knowing you have someone who love and adores you can make all the difference in the world.  Show them you care.

Don't forget to add the hashtags #YouMatterToMeProject or #YM2M to the bottom of your letter.  Take a chance that they look up the mission and join in, too.
