It’s Love Letter Day!


We’re celebrating the connections that tie us all together with a series of Love Letters. They’re fun, they’re original, and they’re from the most unexpected sources. Every month, we’ll release a new letter and a new contest. It’s a monthly reminder of what inspires us, what fills our hearts with joy, what puts smiles on our faces.

Love Letters from the Old Mill District

Jolly greetings from the North Pole!

Bells are jingling, elves are tinkering and the reindeer are practicing their takeoffs and landings every day. We’re almost ready for the big show and I can’t wait to land in Bend, one of my favorite places on Earth. Fingers crossed you have snow this year!

I know you’ve thought long and hard about what’s on your list and I will try my best to fulfill your heart’s desire. Most people don’t know this, but I also have a wish list. This year, it’s very short:

1. A kinder world

I’ve been everywhere on the planet and have seen what people need more than anything. It’s kindness, and I can’t create it in my workshop or wrap it in a bow. Can you help make my wish come true?

Look for the best in others. Think about your words before you speak. Always be grateful, even when it’s hard. I promise that magic is real and it’s everywhere if you believe with your whole heart that kindness can make a difference. You can start this very moment.
