Be a writer activist by penning a love letter to a stranger

Hannah Brencher believes the world could use a little more love. And she believes in the power of the written word to spread it.

Brencher grew up receiving handwritten letters from her mother. When she became depressed in college, she found recovery in writing love letters for strangers to find.
