Bright Wishes is a snail mail program that I’ve created to attempt to bring a little hand-lettered happiness to the mailboxes of people who might need it. It’s mail that will be sent right to an actual, physical mail box, provided for no reason other than to cheer someone up. And it’s free.
Mailings will include an inspirational quote or phrase, hand-lettered by me and digitally printed on cardstock. The size might vary each time, but it will fit in a regular envelope which I will also address by hand. I’ll send them every other month, maybe more.
So, if you know someone who could use a little cheer or inspiration in their mailbox, please sign them up. Maybe they are lonely, sick, or just overwhelmed. Hopefully this mail will bring a smile. Maybe they’ll keep it. Maybe they’ll share it. Each one will be like a little surprise.
Sign up by sending me the person’s name and mailing address via this form or email. You can tell me their story, or don’t. It’s up to you. If you do, it might help inspire the next quote I choose to send, but I won’t use the information for anything else. And I won’t tell them you signed them up. I’ll leave that up to you if you choose. I won’t use their addresses for anything else, and if they want to unsubscribe, they can just email me. I’ll include a note telling them that. There are no strings attached.
I will get benefits from this… I’ll get a new outlet for my lettering practice, and will have another motivation to try new styles and layouts. I’ll get to use up some of my extra paper and envelopes. I’ll also get to know (or think, anyway) that I’m doing something nice, however small it might be, for someone who needs it.
