More than 100 women attended an event on September 29 to hear Hannah Brencher, founder of The World Needs More Love Letters, tell her incredible story of turning a small act of kindness into a global philanthropic organization.
Sponsored by the Women of Nichols (WON), the event provided an opportunity for our female students to connect with each other, faculty and staff and to celebrate each other and their gifts.
Hannah’s message resonated with students and is one that we all can take to heart: fight for your dreams, follow your passion, be kind, and do good deeds in this world.
Clearly students were touched by the presentation and responded to several parts of her talk with heartfelt emotion, honesty, and excitement.
After her lecture, Hannah invited everyone to write a letter to one of three “bundle requests” that More Love Letters received recently. Everyone who attended wrote a letter to one of three individuals going through a difficult time in his or her life, providing them comfort, hope and support. All of these notes will be included in the “bundle” sent to each of the individuals.
