The Letters You Keep

I have a confession: I had absolutely no idea that April was National Card and Letter Writing month. A friend of mine at Crane & Co. informed me last week. Oh well, now I know and am passing along the good word. My friend also informed me that Crane is sponsoring “The Letters You Keep,” which is a contest celebrating memorable handwritten letters treasured over time. . .I think I’ll enter the Summer Camp Letter I’ve held onto for 13 years.

Through April, Crane hopes to receive meaningful letters of all types in order to select one winning letter. The keeper of that letter will be announced in May and be awarded $500 toward building a Crane & Co. stationery wardrobe. The winning letter will be featured on Crane’s website!
