Let it spread like wildfire again

Posted on Friday~March 6, 2009

Have you met Amber and Seth?

Amber is the gifted writer at The Run a Muck, and she also happens to be the recipient of the Mother Letter Project this past Christmas. Seth is her husband, the man behind The Mother Letter Project. (If you don't know, the Mother Letter Project was an idea Seth had to have mothers write letters to mothers, sharing encouragement and advice. He then collected all the letters (hundreds and hundreds) and gave them to Amber for Christmas. Yes, WOW.)




When the identity of the recipient was revealed on Seth's blog, he linked to his wife, Amber's blog. I immediately subscribed. I was blown away by Amber's talent for writing and for sharing her thoughts and feelings from her heart.

Now these two lovely people have something new up their sleeves. The Mother Letter Project spread across the internet like wildfire. People were inspired by the creativity of the idea and wanted to share their mothering hearts. The letters are absolutely beautiful. So Seth and Amber decided to continue the project, asking for more mother letters to benefit Compassion International's Malaria Intervention Fund.


(clickety click on the pic anytime to get the details.)

You can read more about how writing your letter can help save lives at The Mother Letter Project blog. If you wrote a letter already for Amber's gift, no worries, you can write another. Writing a mother letter for Mother's Day would be the perfect gift, no? Every letter that's written is another donation to the malaria fun. Please click on the link to learn more about how this works and to consider sharing your thoughts on motherhood for a very good cause. (PSSST! There's a giveaway!)

Amber and Seth, I'm so glad to have "met" you here in blogland. You are truly inspiring people. I've loved reading your words (and tweets :) and hope to have the coffee with you one day soon.
(p.s. If I've gotten any of the above info. wrong, clarify in the comments, mkay?)

OH! And isn't now the perfect time to FINALLY share this little piece of fabulous blog bling? Amber gave it to me about a gazillion years ago.

Thank you, Amber! YOU are quite fabulous yourself.

I would like to pass this on to Kazzy of Kazzy's Ponderings. Because her blog really is fabulous! I love when she sings on Music Mondays and I love how her writing is always like poetry. Kazzy, you're totally fab.



Happy Friday to all! Now go check out the Mother Letter Project and be inspired.

Call me Goose, cause I'm talking...

Heather, thanks. A million times thanks. I am so thankful that you and your readers are participating and helping this thing go "viral." You are not ordinary. You are clearly extraordinary. I hereby dub you "Heater of the E."

Thanks again, and thanks to your readers for jumping on board.

Lara said...

Kazzy totally deserves...her blog is fabulous.

And so are you.

And the Mother Letter project.

LisAway said...

I can't be sure, but I don't think Mother Letter meant to call you warming appliance of the E up there. But maybe she did.

That project is awesome and glad to see that it's spreading for a new cause.

AND glad to see Kazz getting some much deserved recognition. She is fab.

Kelline said...

I will have to check this out, and possibly sumbit a letter.

I've been meaning to check out more about the Mother Letter project. thanks for the reminder!

That Girl in Brazil said...

I've stared at the Mother Letter button on more than one occasion - now I'll click it.

(And I LOVE Kazzy - I second the fabulousness!)

LexiconLuvr said...

This is just one more reason why I think you're amazing, Heather. You seem to "root out" the goodness in the world and are not content until you've shared it and "infected" the rest of us with your natural instinct for kindness. Would that I were so inherently kind as you. Thank you for helping me to get there.

kel said...

Cool! I am going to go check that out! And you so deserve that award, girl!

Kazzy said...

Awww shucks. I wish I looked like that lady on the award! sigh. Thanks, friend, and I am on my way to check out the link. With a son currently living in Africa I am all over the Malaria concern. Thanks again!

I've been meaning to write a Mother Letter, but was feeling inept when I first heard about it. Glad for another kick in the pants on that because I'm sure I have SOMETHING to say. And so glad you awarded my fabulous friend Kazzy. She is fabulous. And even more so in real life!
