2018: A New Year

“There are years that ask questions and years that answer.” – Zora Neale Hurston

I am easing in to 2018. I still haven’t figured out if it’ll be a question year or an answer one. To that end, I’m not certain what the focus of Stamp Out Hate will be, but in the meantime, here are some recent projects that I thought it worth sharing. I hope you’re having a happy new year and are feeling up to the task of spreading postal love throughout the land.

Amy Heitman, a stationery company I like, has launched a campaign called “Cards for Cause“. You can get 10 sample cards of theirs for $10 and 100% of the proceeds get donated to Ink Foundation.

Handwritten Revolution is still going strong. I cannot speak more highly of what they are doing. I recommend following their Instagram for a drip-feed of inspiration and project prompts.

Lastly, I very much enjoyed this post on the Write_On blog about how to make written resistance part of your 2018 resolutions.

Be kind. Try hard. Send Hope.

When I was a child, I can remember going with my grandmother on her volunteer delivery route for Meals on Wheels in the community where I grew up. Nowadays, that same organization helps out my other set of grandparents with a weekly meal delivery. There are multiple chapters of Meals on Wheels. Take a moment to thank your local one.
