What started out as an off-handed comment has turned into an epic online phenomenon.
Jodi Ann Bickley offered to write a personal note to anyone who was feeling a bit down or depressed. Over the past 4 years Jodi has written over 12,000 letters!
"I'm making a gift for somebody, something to be treasured." Jodi said.
"When someone has written a letter specifically for you, and has dedicated that time to you, it makes you feel special and seen. "
"In a world where we're so fast-paced and almost invisible to one another, a letter is a way of saying, 'I see you and I care for you', and I think that's really important."
"Every single letter request I get through is a life story, it's not just someone saying, 'Oh, I'm sad'," she explained. "These people will have written me pages and pages about their lives."
"To write them a letter back is a privilege. It sounds really cheesy to say out loud but I feel lucky to be able to connect with them."
What an awesome thing for her to do, people clearly love the replies they've received!
