Joining A Month of Letters: Operation Christmas Child Style

My daughter, Sarah, is participating in "A Month of Letters,"  also known as LetterMo.  A challenge set by a blogger to send a piece of snail mail each day the USPS delivers mail throughout the month of February.  This is the third year she has participated I think.  It got me thinking about the letters I want to put in each Operation Christmas Child shoebox I pack.

So I have decided to join LetterMo OCC style!  Each day this month I plan to write one letter for my shoe boxes. I want to make them more personal and try to note something in the box.  Since I won't have all of my boxes planned I'll have
to leave a little space to add this as I pack them thru the year.

I'll let you know at the end of the month how I did--so far I have the first two done on schedule.  I have my writing basket full of fun paper to use; and hopefully this year in November I wont be printing off duplicate letters to include in all of my boxes like last year.

Sarah wrote a guest post here at Simply Shoe Boxes with tips on writing letters for shoeboxes:  Tips on Writing a Letter to Include in Your Shoe Box.  If you want to see Sarah's blog post about her preparation for LetterMo and perhaps follow her as she participates this month you can click this image to visit Sarah's Scribblings.

Do you enjoy sending snail mail?  Do you include a letter in each of your Operation Christmas Child shoebox gifts?  Have you ever received correspondence back from a child who received a shoebox you sent?

I'm looking around my room for a writing basket as I type! I mean, mentally looking. ;-) When I get up, I will seek, find and fill!

:-) Love it! Seek, find & fill -- just like a shoe box!
