Hii! I’ve currently closed my inbox for volunteer interest, you are all so wonderful and all want to volunteer and I’m just working through it all now!
If you would like to send your own lovely letter or letters (there is lots and lots to send!), a letter to remind someone how wonderful they are you can do so here and if you include your email address I can let you know where in the world it has ended up!

Find The Right Words
I am going to be curating ‘Find the right words’ exhibitions. The concept of these exhibitions are for you to send me the letters you would send to someone you loved to remind them how extremely important and special they are on the days that they forget. These exhibitions can be anywhere in the world and anybody who visits the exhibition will be able to take the letter that they feel is talking to them right at that very moment, or the letter they feel someone they love needs. The idea of someone from New York lending some lovely words to someone in Birmingham – someone in Manchester writing a letter that will end up in the pocket of someone in Delhi – it’s so exciting to me and to be able to have you involved will just be absolutely awesome.
You can send your letters to me at the address above (and below!) and if you could write on the envelope Find the right words that would be just wonderful!
The Letter you never sent.
I have so many letters I have never sent, sometimes the act of just writing what you want to say down is enough – other times not. What this exhibition will consist of is all of our letters. The letters that for some reason or another we never got round to sending, whether we didn’t want to, didn’t get round to or felt it best kept with us. If you have a letter that is at the back of a drawer, under your bed, in the notes on your phone or a word document – typed or handwritten, whole or in pieces – if you could send them to me, I would be so grateful!
Or you can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
With the subject line: The letter I never sent.
Hi! Firstly I’d just like to say you don’t have to pay for your letters! At all! It’s not like that – but because I am writing so many (so far I’ve written nearly 3,000 and sent them all over the world!) If, like at Christmas or something you want to donate some money in the Stamp Fund that would be really lovely! Although it is the ‘Stamp Fund’ this helps with stamps, stationary, office space, volunteer costs and so much more! Obviously, you don’t have to. It’s one of them things if you find a spare pound and you’re like, “what could I do that would be nice with this pound?!” – chuck it in the stamp pot! Or, buy yourself some Orangina because that’s really nice too.
