What a monumental milestone! As we approach the Easter holiday weekend, our team will drop their 500th letter in the post box. We are now 1/4 of the way to our goal for the year of writing 2,000 letters! A special thank you to all the nominators who took the time to let us know about someone who would enjoy a greeting from history and virtual hugs to all the donors who have helped to raise the $6,400 in funds to get us to this milestone. We will put out a renewed call for donations to help keep the campaign going over the spring. Looking forward to updating you on our next milestone!
This holiday weekend, our letter writers reached an impressive milestone in the campaign, having mailed the 300th letter from the Greetings from History campaign! This represents over 200 hours of work and 15% of our ultimate goal in writing 2,000 letters. Donations and nominations continue to arrive each day, so we continue to write. Thank you to our incredible donors who have each helped to support this campaign, and to the many letter recipients who sent us their gratitude for receiving their letter. This endeavour has brought joy to many, including us! We plan to continue the Greetings from History campaign throughout the rest of the winter and spring, and we look forward updating you at our next letter writing milestone!
A huge thank you to the amazing and generous donors who kick-started our campaign and helped to raise enough funds to write our first 200 letters. We purchased postage, wax seals, and beautiful stationery that will be sure to add extra delight to the contents of the letters. Letter writers have begun to put pen to paper, and the first batch will hit post office boxes this week.
We are still looking for more deserving recipients to receive these letters, so nominate someone today to receive a greeting from history: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe1dYFhIJLkTjPzTUsh0IahUjSumEoPYdYCo2TWFRQSeTc0RQ/viewform
