December is Write a Friend Month
Nothing is better than receiving a surprise letter in the mail! Whether it is an old friend, a family member, a soldier, or someone you have never met, receiving a personal correspondence can brighten up a winter day! The holidays are the perfect time to put pen to paper, and connect via written word with a senior living resident, a grandchild, a family member, an old friend or neighbor.
Five reasons to write a letter this month:
- Connect with loved ones
- Spread holiday cheer
- Express creativity
- Reflect on events of the past year
- Create keepsakes and memories
Consider including a holiday card or photographs with your letter. Have fun and purchase some festive new stationery or personalize your stationery by making your own with markers, stickers, and doodles!
