On National Letter Writing Day this December 7, we hope to achieve our year-long goal of collecting 31,000 letters in 2015.
FOLSOM, California (PRWEB) December 01, 2015
Can you remember the last time you wrote someone a letter? Girls Love Mail, a Northern California based national nonprofit that collects hand-written letters of encouragement and gets them to women newly diagnosed with breast cancer, wants people to revisit the lost art of letter writing and support their Miles of Mail campaign to reach 31,000 letters received by the end of 2015. With National Letter Writing Day on December 7 fast approaching, Girls Love Mail is calling for men, women and children to stop texting and start handwriting.
Girls Love Mail was founded in 2011 by Folsom, California resident Gina Mulligan, a breast cancer survivor. While undergoing treatment, Gina received more than 200 cards and letters from friends, family and people she'd never met. They provided inspiration and strength during a time of solitude and struggle. Today, Girls Love Mail has distributed more than 50,000 letters to women across the U.S.
“Girls Love Mail lets women know they’re not alone by giving them letters of encouragement when they are first diagnosed,” says Mulligan. “On National Letter Writing Day we hope to achieve our year-long goal of collecting 31,000 letters in 2015. Letter writers of all ages and from across the country are joining us in this intimate act that provides so much comfort to these women. We provide help on the website about how to get started and what to say in your handwritten letter.”
Letters are read for appropriateness and distributed through cancer centers and special programs. Letters can be sent to:
Girls Love Mail
193 Blue Ravine Road, Suite 120
Folsom, California 95630
In the spirit of female empowerment, Mulligan will release REMEMBER THE LADIES in May 2016, a historical fiction novel about women's suffrage in the late 1800s. Further details about the book can be found on ginamulligan.com.
Founded in 2011, Girls Love Mail is a 501(c)3 charitable organization founded by Gina Mulligan and based in Folsom California. To date, the organization has collected 50,249 handwritten letters and distributed them to women in cancer centers and other special programs across the U.S. More information can be found on girlslovemail.com and on Facebook at facebook.com/GirlsLoveMail.
