Letters From Home

Hi All! I want to share with you a wonderful organization that is dedicated to sharing love and brightening the days of lonely senior citizens. Letters From Home was started in 2001 by my Aunt Kay during the time that my grandmother (her mother) was in assisted living. Aunt Kay noticed that there were so many residents who were not getting frequent or even any visits from loved ones and her heart went out to them. Letters From Home grew out of  her desire to share her love. LFH is a way of including all of these lonely seniors in a big loving family circle.

 I would love it if you would take the time to read about Letters From Home, Inc HERE. As a non-profit corporation LFH operates on tax-deductible donations to cover printing costs and postage. They are always looking for more seniors who would benefit from receiving these news filled letters from their "adopted" family.

I know most of you like to send homemade cards and Vera at Ling's Design Studio has started a wonderful Caring Hearts Card Drive for that purpose. Letters From Home is unique in that it is only letters that are sent every week to 10 days. My aunt writes these letters herself and fills them with all the newsy family happenings in her own family allowing the recipients to become part of that family circle.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Letters From Home, Inc. I hope you will share this with your friends and family and maybe "adopt" Letters From Home as a charity to support this holiday season.

Love and Blessings,


  1. what a delightful story Nancy. It is such a great idea. I wish them all the best for their venture... long may it continue

  2. Nancy, it's so amazing for your aunt to do this. So very kind and I am grateful I can follow her steps in my own small way.

  3. How lovely that your aunt started this and it is truly something that blesses someone else with a little attention and love.

  4. What a neat idea, Nancy. Such a special thing to do for aging seniors. I will be talking to my hubby about this. His mom would've loved getting these letters, as she was quite lonely in her final days. So glad you shared this!


Thanks for your comments, I love hearing from you!
