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:

  1. Connect with loved ones
  2. Spread holiday cheer
  3. Express creativity
  4. Reflect on events of the past year
  5. 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!
