Junk Mail Fatigue? The cure - National Card and Letter Writing Month

Instead of junk mail I’d like to celebrate “National Card and Letter Writing Month” with some good news, please. Heck, I’d settle for any piece of mail that does not threaten or guilt me into …

* completing a survey.

* making a donation.

* calling or writing to my congresspersons or political party.

* eating or drinking something I don’t want at some place I don’t want to be.

* making a payment NOW or at sometime sooner than later.

* paying someone else’s bill NOW or sometime soon.

Ahhhhh …. I long for a note from a friend with a funny cartoon inside, a letter from my mother with a check to go “spoil” myself, a note from a girlfriend “just because.”

The thing about notes and letters is that one often has to initiate them. However, once they are in motionthey seem to take on a life of their own and become more frequent …

I was on a roll earlier this year writing “thank you” notes. Amazing things came out of that! … lots of return notes (thank yous, funny and sweet), an autographed copy of “Why Good Things Happen to Good People,” a major discount on a car repair job and tons of feel-good energy.

Best of all I found that writing notes cheered me up. Doing good onto others just seems to do the best on to me too.

Next month, April, is officially known as “National Card and Letter Writing Month.” It is also known as “National Humor Month.” You can celebrate both by mailing out funny DogCaption Cards! And … 25% of the profits from these card packs benefit dog and cat rescues. I should know. I am kinda on the board!

While you’re at it - why don’t you surprise me with a note? I’ll return the favor! My address is:
10321 Antietam Court, Fredericksburg, VA 22408.

Special thanks to for bringing “National Card and Letter Writing Month” to my attention.

Cheers! Viveca

P.S. Another cool April event is the release of a new stamp, the "Adopt a Shelter Pet" Stamp
