Interview with More Love Letters founder, Hannah Brencher.
In the spirit of #GivingBack, do you have a favorite memory of a #Giveback experience?
A favorite #giveback memory is when we assembled a love letter bundle for a man named Ray, a man with colon cancer. Ray’s daughter requested love letters for him to help see him through his final round of chemotherapy. Ray got over 150 love letters from people around the world. We loved getting to see the pictures and learn that he was making a collage out of all of his letters. Those letters kept Ray going and were a reminder to everyone involved of why we work so hard to pour out love to strangers.
Why is important for you personally to #Giveback?
We think that all of life is about taking time to #giveback. It is essential in our everyday lifestyles and it is the crux of all that we do. It’s easy to do things for ourselves but we get great joy and purpose from being able to brighten the lives of others around us.
To me, personally, giving back is at the heart of everything that I do. It keeps me getting up everyday. It keeps me focused on the stuff of life that really matters.
What lead you to your work in the area of impacting the lives of others?
It happened pretty naturally. I was raised with knowing that giving back, especially when I had so much, was absolutely essential. To me, it is not a part of life– it is the whole of life. My mother showed me the value of serving others with my heart and my talents and I never turned away. I really feel like my purpose in life is to serve others and I will take on any work, challenge, or new role that allows me to move further with that.
