Meet Hannah: She needs your love letter today.

It’s been tough to write here lately.

If I am being honest, I work a good ten hours a day and all I am left with, when I reach the keys, is speechlessness. Over all of you and what you’ve done with this “little love letter project” of mine.

These days I feel my wings thumping from behind me. And I stop to remember how much I would have killed for this, lived for this, when I was sixteen years old. Full of Fear. Full of Hesitation. Wanting him to like me. Willing to pretend for just a single chance at a sacred word inflated with the Helium of Pretty Girls and Football Players, Popularity.

But today I have a chance, a chance to reach back and write a letter to a girl just like me… I’ve had the chance to speak with Hannah’s family over the internet and this is what I know…

Meet Hannah.

Hannah is a 16-year-old whose parents recently divorced. She’s taken the divorce hard and has recently become very depressed. Her letter requester wrote, “Hannah was picked on when she was younger and it muted her vibrant personality that she had when she was small. Now she is hesitant to let the real Hannah shine through, though she is a very artistically talented and beautiful girl. We really hope that these love letters will speak to her heart, and will be a spark for her when she feels lost and alone in the world.”

Oh, Hannah. Hannah, Hannah, Hannah.

The things I want for you already. And so today I am writing a love letter for you. And I have Kaleigh Somers, a girl whose heart absolutely swelled for you before she ever even knew your name, writing one beside me. And I am hoping that my readers, the ones tracing this post right this moment, will join me in writing a love letter for you today.

Please take the time today to write a love letter to Hannah today. All letters should be mailed to Hannah’s Bundle, PO Box 2061, North Haven CT 06473. More details can be found… H.E.R.E.

Today I am reaching out to coworkers and asking them to write a love letter. Reaching out to my all-star team at She’s the First and asking them to write a love letter. To friends & family & you, to script a letter for a girl who needs to find her wings.

Won’t you join me?

  1. I will definitely be writing her a letter – I know her pain all too well.

    I am still so inspired by this project of yours, Hannah. I always knew you could change the world.

      1. Sticking it in the mail tomorrow, so don’t send it out just yet! It was easily one of the most powerful yet most difficult letters I’ve ever had to write. I just want to reach out and give her a hug and tell her it’ll be ok. Thanks for the opportunity to do this.
        Thank YOU for the motivation! Love you! I miss you so much too – I’ve been thinking about you a lot lately as I’ve been working on Senior Retreat. Let’s catch up soon.

  2. Hannah,

    Your project brings beauty to a world that needs it. If folks did this all over the world, they’d be too busy to do the horrible things they seem to find the time to do to each other.

    I bet Oprah would sponsor this non-profit. Remember, when we talked about you having a non-profit? This one would change the world!

    Thank you for inviting me to participate. G.

    1. G- you are so right! We did say that… Apparently I am already on Oprah’s good side with the blog post one of her writers wrote ;).

      And you are amazing… I am so thankful to have you involved with all this. It means the world. Really. Truly.

  3. Already in the mail! Hannah katy….i LOVE LOVE LOVE this project 🙂 thank you for giving me the opportunity! Its so very healing for me!

  4. Hi Hannah:),

    I want to write her a letter but I’m not sure if she would want to receive a letter from the other side of the world.:) I love this project btw.

    love lots,

  5. Hi Hannah, I messed up 😦 I didn’t get Hannah’s letter in the mail today!!! I was having an MS moment I guess. I wanted to know if I could e-mail it somewhere. Please let me know ASAP. I feel awful about this and I am so very sorry, Terri
