The Power of Pen and Paper: Love Letters to Strangers
You don’t truly know a woman (or a man) until you have received a letter from her. Ada Leverson
As we prepare to officially launch ourselves into the Holiday Season, I can think of no better message to share with you than Hannah Brencher’s heart touching TED Talk presentation – Love Letters to Strangers.
Hannah Brencher believes in the power of pen and paper, and has started a global initiative that encourages strangers to exchange love letters.
Brechner has always loved that her family communicates via handwritten letters. In October of 2010, she began writing love letters intended for strangers and tucking them away in libraries and cafes across New York City, for people to randomly discover. Soon, she offered on her blog HannahKaty.com to write a letter to anyone who needed one.
Over the next year, she mailed out more than 400 hand-penned letters.
Today she runs The World Needs More Love Letters, a letter exchange dedicated to connecting strangers across the globe through the art of letter writing.
