Letter of Encouragement to a Stranger is A Letter Writer’s take on the concept of writing letters of encouragement to people we don’t personally know but who may be going through some rough times. A lot of groups are into this campaign in the belief that one letter of encouragement can provide hope to those who feel alone, depressed, unloved, bullied, medically sick or even those who feel worthless in their own eyes.

There are several ways in which a similar letter-sending campaign can be done.  Groups or organizations dedicated to doing this can receive nominations for letter-receivers or accept letters from people who are going through difficult times. Members of the group can send anonymous letters of encouragement to any one of these people. Long-time anonymous letter writers of this kind even leave their letters where other people at random can find them.

To you my friend,

I may not know you nor you me but that is not what is important.

How was your day?

I hope it was fulfilling, happy, and peaceful.

Should this letter find you otherwise, let me just assure you that whatever it is, it will pass.

I just want you to know that I am rooting for your success, wishing for your happiness and good health , and hoping that the solution you need to have at this very moment that you are reading this will come to you. Do not give up, never give up. There is always a way and it will come to you soon, more swiftly than you can ever hope for.

I’ve been through similar situations when I thought I would not see the light of the next day and then someone from somewhere will extend his hand and offer kind words just in the nick of time. Just when I thought I couldn’t take any more, someone comes and assures me that other people do care after all.

I may never have the pleasure of knowing you personally but should you survive this day which I have no doubt you would, offer another person in need of comfort, your words of encouragement as well. It can be someone close to you or a perfect stranger, it doesn’t really matter. Just as long as you make someone know that he or she matters.

Be well, my friend.
