Volunteer Opportunity: Girls Love Mail

Join us in giving the Gift of Hand-Written Letters to Women Newly Diagnosed with Breast Cancer
A hand-written letter has the special power to heal. Girls Love Mail collects your hand-written letters of encouragement, bundles them, and sends them, via the caring staff at cancer centers, to women newly diagnosed with breast cancer. Every letter is a gift from you to a woman going through a difficult time. Hand-written letters only.
Anyone can write a letter! All it takes is a little of your time and the cost of a postage stamp to help a woman newly diagnosed with breast cancer.
Won’t you Join Us and be part of the 2021 MILES OF MAIL campaign?
