    Default Donate a letter!

    I bought some Basildon Bond paper and saw the logo of this charity on the cover. They're asking people to write to patients with cancer i.e to donate a bit of a time and the cost of stamp to send a letter and some positive thoughts to people who may be isolated by their disease, low, unhappy or ill ( or all of the above). It seems like a simple but helpful thing to do. Please consider it.
    We all know that a letter is better than an email or text- here's achance to do something for others and for ourselves.
    Some days, it's hardly worth chewing through the leather straps....

    From the last paragraph of that page (though we already know this):

    • Letters are rarely misinterpreted, unlike texts and e-mails. A letter can’t be rushed so the intent and voice are stronger.
    • Research shows that a routine of letter writing can increase levels of contentedness and lower instances of depression.
    • The reader has a choice about when to open your letter. It can lift a mood, provide comfort or be a special moment.
    • You can fill a letter full of positivity, unlike the other things that come through the letterbox – bills.
    • You can express emotions and feelings in letters that you might struggle to articulate face-to-face.
    • Letters don’t just exist on a screen, they have a place in your home, your coat pocket or your bag.
    • Holding a letter engages the senses of touch and smell – 2 senses excluded from the digital age.
    • Letters are a wonderful opportunity for reflection – for both the writer and the reader.
    • Letters create a legacy.
