Founder of More Love Letters, Hannah Brencher, was living in New York City
after graduating from college and found herself grappling with loneliness
and depression. As an effort to keep her mind off the sadness, she began
leaving love letters across New York City— libraries, coffee shops,
everywhere. Her letter-leaving spiraled into a year of writing letters to
strangers all over the world. After writing 400 letters, More Love Letters
Hannah thought the website she built would fade out within a few weeks.
gained momentum and is still going strong five years later.
We believe in the power of connection. We believe in innovation through
social media and using the online community to band together and rally
together and show up for one another. We are not about love letters so much
as we are about what love letters stand for in this digital age: intention
and presence. We want to see more of that. We want to see more people
showing up for other people. That is the heart behind everything we do.
