Stories of Kindness from Around the World

If I Can't Donate Money. I Donate Love!

--by brindlegirl, posted Dec 31, 2014
I wanted to share with you all a little something I do. I do this often, well as often as I can. I love to write. I love to make others feel happy, loved and special because lets face it; that is exactly what we all are.

So what I do is put the two things together, writing and love. I often write letters of love to strangers and leave them in places hoping that the person who needs it most will stumble upon the letter and find it.

However lately I've started to post letters to organizations and even random people whose addresses I stumble upon. I am often sent letters asking for donations and to help contribute to various charities and organizations. I contribute the best I can but as we all know, we can't contribute and donate to them all. Included in these letters of request for donations, are reply paid envelopes. I love getting the reply paid envelopes because when I can't make a donation, I write them a letter of love and make a donation of a different kind instead. A Donation of love.

Many of the workers who work in these organizations do so voluntarily and are never thanked and at times feel as though they are not appreciated or even noticed. I hope to change that with my letters and I wanted to share this with you all today in case you too felt inspired to do the same.
