Drew,

I personally want to thank you and your staff for working so hard to get this app back up and running. I'm going to be blatantly honest. I felt very lost. Your app became my hiding place from emotional wind and storms. People often refer to having a happy place. Well I must say this app is mine. Chirayu and I kept in touch and kept each other hopeful through our emptiness. What this situation taught me is that you never know how much you cherish something until it's taken away. I also hope the malfunction of the stamp purchasing is fixed as well because my plans are to contribute to this app as much as I can. If that causes me to purchase every stamp collection created, so be it. Peopl...

YOU ARE AWESOME

On a crisp clear night the lost boy asked whether to surrender or fight.

He sat in silence waiting for a voice, to invite someone above to signal a choice.

No words could stir his heart
No sound would break his stare

His heart raced, his eyes glimmered, and at the deepest chill of the darkest moment he felt the warmth of a mother’s touch.   He was warmed all over again.

Dear Drew,

Its been a while since I wrote to you.

This is a letter of utmost respect and gratitude once again to you and entire team of lettrs. I'll tell you why.

Lettrs has always embraced me with open arms. Love and affection that I got in this platform is beyond my ability to express it in words.

It's been more than three years since I'm part of this community and I love every bit of it.

For many reasons, it changed my life. I used lettrs as a medium not only to let things out. But to improve myself from time to time in various aspects. Learning from experiences of other writers, artists, lettrists who post here, is so helpful and at times motivational. Lettrs helped to shape my life...

GRATEFUL

Dear friends of lettrs,

We experienced some technical difficulties in the last 24 hours with a very large surge in letter writing. My apologies!  For our iOS members the scale matter has been resolved and we are close to completing a fix for Android.

These problems sometimes occur with technology but know that your letters mean so much to us, and to the world.  We are committed to the preservation of lettrs, forever.  

Did you know letters have now been published in 80 languages and 93 countries?  We are on a mission and that mission is to make messages that actually matter.

Thanks for understanding!

I believe that what gives us texture, the lines of experience and the depths of character, is not any singular success but the sequence of a thousand necessary failures.

We are enriched by striving more than by winning.

Dear Drew Bartkiewicz Sir,

It's been  so long. And each time when  I write, I get reminded of this beautiful world of Lettrs.  The positivity and enthusiasm we have here is just amazing.

Lettrs is a special place for me.
I formed a community called Vorfreude Community - An international community of creative people.
Looking forward to a collaboration with Lettrs. Can we have a discussion based on this? And what's the right time to contact you for the same?

Regards,
Lettrs forever

Namaste Sir,

This is kind of a thanking letter and it also includes something I wrote recently. I don't know where else would I be letting my words, my feelings out,if I had not found Lettrs, for i don't have that kinda support from my family. So I just wanted to thank you for creating such a beautiful app because for people like me,  this is the only escape.  Thank you for giving us a chance to connect with some of the rarest talents across the globe. Here's a pizza 🍕and here's what I wrote, do tell me how it is.  :)

In my view, what provides the real energy of a true entrepreneur is the unshakable quest to have an impact on others more than to achieve their own success.

#ThankYou

Dear Skylarkers,

I recently saw the thank you prompt provided by our wonderful Lettrs Staff. An uplifting suggestion and one which I felt able to join in with. It also seems the perfect opportunity to express my enormous thanks to those of you who've participated in my #SkylarkChallenge since it's conception.

You'd might be surprised to learn though, that I have put this off for several days as the idea of giving thanks fills me with slight trepidation. Why?, because there are so, so many of you! That's why. It's therefore an  impossible task to name everyone. But there are some individuals who come to mind because their participation stands out. But before proc...

The biggest mistake is being too afraid to ever make one.

Always take the chance, to win or lose, fly or fall, for that’s where we learn who we really are.

Dear Drew and the Lettrs Team,

Thank you for creating Painly. I’ve read hundreds of letters, here, about depression, suicide, addictions and many other painful experiences and situations.
It is heartbreaking to read a letter about a young girl or boy who’s depressed, lost, isolated, and feeling despair.

I recently read a letter where a person wrote that at some point in their life they will kill themselves. How do you respond to that? How does the Lettrs team cope to those cries for help? How do you cope?

It can’t be easy, but it hasn’t gone unnoticed because you created Painly. I’m a survivor of depression and suicide, and the despair it can cause, but I found help.

It was many yea...

I think the belief in one’s self takes half of a lifetime to learn,
and the other half to actually do something worthwhile with it.

The accelerator of it all is faith.
