Handwritten Inspiring Letters

10 letters = 1 service hour

A thoughtful activity to show a stranger that you are rooting for them!

Priorities

  • Handwritten positive, inspiring letters, starting with "Dear friend," "Hi there," "Hi friend," etc.
  • Long letters that include “on behalf of Sonia and Kits to Heart”
  • Letters using the language in the samples below. You may repeat letters/artwork
  • Use of cardstock paper with envelopes (unsealed and blank). Store-bought cards with your own letters and artwork inside are welcome, though please be sure to write letters, not only a quote or two!

We Do Not Accept

  • Ongoing correspondence to only one patient
  • Letters written in pencil or bright highlighters (difficult to read)
  • Writing that someone you know passed away from cancer (stay optimistic!)
  • Letters on notebook or printer paper
  • Photocopies or printed letters
  • Quotes written on index cards
  • Messages encouraging "quick" recovery or "get well soon," due to the nature of some cancers
