GINGER

Ginger’s daughter reached out to us to request a bundle for her mother. She shared:

“My mother is 38 years old and takes care of my brother and me on her own. She is a kind, strong woman. I got to watch her graduate from college when I was five years old. My mom is a special education teacher. She really loves seeing children learn to do things that no one thought they could do. I think she is a great mother because she spends time with us a lot and is always there to listen to me. I have ADHD and get depressed in the winter and my mom is always there to give a helping hand. She has gone to classes to learn how to be a better mother for me and she talks to the best doctors she can find. She never gives up on me.”

Ginger’s daughter also shared that her mother has been struggling with hip issues since the birth of her little brother. She has also been facing depression after losing multiple loved ones and her husband left her recently. Ginger has to use a cane to get around, but the doctors will not perform surgery on her hip (and various other surgeries she needs), until she loses weight. Her health struggles and weight loss journey has left her feeling even more depressed.

“Even though I know my mom always hurts, she still does as much for my brother and I. I know she feels useless but she still takes good care of us. We can't do the adventures we used to but she finds things for us to do from home that are still fun. We do a back and forth mother daughter journal, she made us sidewalk paint, she reads with us, we color together, she has learned how to French Braid my hair, we paint each others nails and we have started writing pen pals that are mothers and daughters like us. I know about this website because my mom and I used to write the people listed here every month. But since she has been feeling so depressed we have not been sending out love letters. I think right now it is my mom that would use some love.”

Rally with us and send Ginger all the love + light she deserves!

BO

An awesome friend of Bo’s wrote to us to request letters of support and encouragement. He wrote “Bo is a high school friend of mine, and I have known him since we were kids. We grew up playing the violin together and continue to play together in the school orchestra. He had been absent from school for nearly two weeks and he admitted to a group of us that he had attempted suicide and was currently in the hospital. I knew that he had suffered from mental illness in the past, but this was the first time he openly admitted how he was feeling to a group of us. I felt like crying, and I did. Many people make fun of Bo because he is an incredibly unique individual, and an incredible musician. He likes to keep to himself and I know many people look down on him and make fun of him because he is different and unique.

I want to show him that no matter how down he feels he means a lot to me, and that there are always people out there that will care for him and show him the respect and dignity he deserves. I want to show him that uniqueness is not something that restricts you as an individual, but instead makes you a more resilient and genuine person.” Join us in penning letters to Bo to remind him that his uniquenesses are what makes him wonderful.

NIRUPAMA

Nirupama’s brother is asking us to help her send some love. He wrote, “My sister has been the biggest shining source of light, love and support in many people’s lives, including my own. She is a young, dynamic, inspiring human being and scientist. She is an incredible person and has stood with numerous people whenever they needed help, at any time of the day. I cannot begin to describe how proud I am of her and her actions.”

However, after some recent discussions with her boyfriend who made snarky comments and others not supporting her when she needed them most, she feels like the world has betrayed her and she does not feel loved anymore. Nirupama has since has been diagnosed with depression, and is experiencing suicidal thoughts. “She has a lot more in her store, and I am not ready to lose her. I want people to show her there is more that the world has to offer and that she is not alone. Please help me show her that the world is a beautiful place and there is still light, hope and joy.” Grab your favorite stationery and script a letter of hope to Nirupama!

DAVE

One of Dave’s friends shared with us his story and asked us to join in sending him some encouragement. She wrote:
“Dave is an amazing person. For starters, he’s a veteran. He's also a great friend and a really good guy. We met several years ago at karate, and Dave is now readying to receive his black belt. Dave’s dedication, loyalty, kindness, and warmth radiate and spread. He loves to help others and is pursuing a certificate in teaching at our karate school, so he can continue to do so through martial arts.

Dave has had some tough times though. Dave had a traumatic brain injury some time ago, but it still affects him today. He's had numerous other injuries as well, but he meets life full of love and hope. More recently, his wife had an affair and left him for a leader in their church. As you can imagine, this was very hard on his faith and has left him struggling and seeking companionship.”

Grab your pens and join us in celebrating what an amazing man Dave is + encouraging him to press on in life!

ANN

Ann’s daughter wrote to us about her incredible mother. She shared:

“My mother is seventy-six years old and a mother of six children. As the years go by, she has started secluding herself to the house due to physical issues, but she loves to read. She is dealing with depression and the belief that the world just isn't as kind anymore.” Join us in showing Ann that the world still has kindness and encouragement to share.
