Hannah Brencher, who started The World Needs More Love Letters, demonstrates how a simple act of kindness can turn life around for the giver and receiver.
Hannah you have really hit the nail on the head with "The World Needs More Love Letters". People have really become disconnected from one another so it's no wonder they feel alone and forgotten. Unlike a text or a posting on a social media network, a letter is something tangible that a person can hold in their hand and it connects them to the person (a human connection) that wrote the letter. They can pull the letter out and read it as often as they need to when they need to be reassured that they are not alone. God bless you and the other women that help you. Thank you for your compassion and your acts of kindness.

Words cannot say how wonderful you are Hannah, I suffer a great deal myself with self worth & just feeling unimportant to people around me. This is the 1st that I heard of your "Love Letters" & I wish I was lucky enough to have gotten one. More people in the world need to be as thoughtful & caring as you are. God Bless you & keep the letters going.

Hand-written letters are so much more intimate than anything the internet has to offer. When you take the time to hand-write you are sharing part of yourself with others. This is a beautiful idea and I commend you. I have written notes for people and left them for them to find. I never knew the outcome, but if it made even one person smile then it was all worth it.

Wonderful idea. I agree with Theresa. We are in a throw away world where everything is able to be bought cheaply without much quality. It is creeping over into our personal lives and people are often looked at as a means to an end for me me me. People are great treasures and should be valued as such. Thanks for your great idea.

Hannah, your action has inspired me to write a thank-you letter for my co-worker's random acts of kindness as well. She gave me this beautiful peony bouquet at work for no reason. Thank you for your inspiration and please keep spreading the love letters around the world.

Dear Hannah, Thank you for all these acts of kindness. We think you have made many people happy and less depressed. You have inspired us to want to do acts of kindness like yours.

Hannah, My daughter who lives in NYC shared your video and I cannot tell you how impressed and truly enriched I feel. I am inspired to follow your lead and write letters. I have always been a "writer", but now I feel like my words have a wonderful place to go. With gratitude and respect...
