Our letter-writing challenges have been one of my favorite things each year, and the new Pay It Forward letter-writing challenge is going to be amazing! I’ve updated and combined all of my letter-writing challenges into one fun course—you can access it here.
April is just around the corner so you know what that means? Letter-writing month! We’ve had a couple of letter-writing challenges here at Little Girl Designs before—The Bring Back Snail Mail Challenge and the 30 Days of Mailbox Love Challenge. Many readers have so whole-heartedly participated that I knew I needed to think of something extra special for this new challenge.
Enter the Pay It Forward Letter-writing Challenge.
You’ve probably heard of the pay it forward concept. You give something to someone who in turn passes on your kindness to another person. What if we were to take that concept into the world of letter-writing?
Of course, it might be a bit strange to write a letter of encouragement to someone and then ask them to write their own note to someone else. So for the sake of this challenge, we’re just going to get the ball rolling. We’ll send our letters out in the world and spread a little kindness. If our recipients “pay it forward” to someone else, awesome! But we’re not going to worry about that. 🙂
Pay it Forward, One Day at a Time
There are so many people who need kindness extended towards them. So many who would be surprised that someone notices and is grateful for their hard work.
I think many times we want to be that person who is kind and generous and who takes the time to say or write a word of encouragement. But we get wrapped up in our own lives. We need to pick up groceries, wash the car, and pick up the kids from school. We hear the news, shake our heads, notice people as we rush here and there, wish things weren’t the way they were, and keep on going.
I get it.
But what would it be like if we took five days to pay it forward? Five days to write a quick note to the people in our lives who need it most, and then send those letters? I truly believe that kindness might just breathe hope back into the recipients’ hearts. It might breathe hope back into you.
This world is downright messy right now. But each of us has the power in our hands to affect change in the lives we touch each day.
For this challenge, you will receive a PDF calendar that includes a lot of different card tutorials you can try out this month. You can just keep the calendar on your computer or phone and tap the links to read more. You’ll also receive 3 printable note cards. They’re black and white so you can leave them as is or have some fun coloring them in. (Maybe with some gelly roll pens? My fave. :)) You’ll also receive a prompt a day in your inbox for five days.
