National Letter Writing Month starts FRIDAY! I can’t wait. Besides making sure I’m loaded up on stamps for my 30 letters in 30 days, I’m also stocking up on letter writing tools to make those letters awesome. I recently received a writing kit from the Write_On Campaign and it was loaded with awesome goodies to kick off my writing.
Throughout the last few months, Write_On has been holding an Indiegogo campaign, selling letterpressed cards, tote bags and other Write_On merchandise to raise enough money to cover sending out free Write_On kits to those who request one and also to support Write_On events around the country. The event raised more than $19,000!
I received on of the free kits about two weeks after submitting my information. Write_On has 10,000 to distribute on a first-come, first-served basis.
The kit includes:
- 6 letterpress printed cards from Egg Press and Hello!Lucky with matching envelopes
- a sheet of Strathmore Writing paper with a matching envelope from Mohawk Paper
- a Gelly Roll pen from Sakura of America
- a list of reasons to write and information about writing.
The letter pressed cards are gorgeous and the pen, mine is a green color, write so smoothly. I love a good gel pen and this one is top notch! There was also a little pack of adorable stickers. Can’t wait to use it all.
It’s a neat little kit and I can’t wait to get working on writing my letters! Do you know who you’ll be sending a letter to this year? If you need some inspiration, you can visit my list of 30 Writing Prompts for National Letter Writing Month.
I can’t wait to kick off my writing. I already have some recipients and letter topics in mind. I don’t plan to start writing until Friday to keep it true to the “rules.” Wait, are there rules? Well, there are in my head!
Let’s get writing!
