Who doesn’t love receiving an unexpected letter in the mail? Nothing beats the surprise of receiving a personalized letter.
Children’s hospitals, nursing homes, foster kids, mental health patients, refugees, past/current soldiers, homeless shelters, etc.
Or, if you aren’t comfortable writing to a stranger, you could always write an appreciative letter to grandparents, any aunts/uncles, parents, a close friend, siblings, etc.
Consider the audience—think about what would be appropriate to include, as well as what should reasonably be avoided.
Consider the purpose—devise a plan for the kind of message you intend to get across. Whatever the overall message may be, the theme should stay positive and uplifting.
Consider the medium—handwritten is always ideal, but this is not required. Determine if colors or drawings are appropriate to add. Depending on your chosen recipient group, additional colors/art could be a great way to brighten their day!
Consider the layout—the card should be sincere and made with care. Keep it neat and uncluttered, but don’t forget to add unique elements to personalize it!
