Magic Mail Center (November 6)

Keep the art of letter writing alive! Children love giving mail, and you can make it easy by setting up a kindness-centered mail station. Our instructions include addresses of organizations that send children’s notes and artwork to people in need. Like magic, a mail station can keep kindness and giving top of mind. Use the printable address sheet to get started, and use the blank address labels for others in your life. If you would like to send mail directly to children experiencing long-term illnesses, visit Send Kids the World.

Talk to your child:

  • What was the last piece of handwritten mail you received? How did it make you feel?
  • Make a list of people (who you know personally or have heard about in the news) who would enjoy receiving "happy mail." Discuss your choices.
