I can't remember the last time I received an actual letter. They were definitely still a thing when I was a very young kid, but over the years, as texting and email became more and more commonplace, writing letters has started to fall out of favor. Which is kind of a shame - there's something very personal about a handwritten letter. A person had to take time out of their day to sit down and write something, and send it out to you. It's nice!

It's even nicer when the letter has something nice to say about you, which was the idea behind this new activity that a Helena man is embarking on. Kyle Osborne has recently taken to writing motivational letters to total strangers, based on requests from people in his community that nominate others to receive one.

It's all in an effort to spread positivity and happiness, which his brand, Add Value, is all about. The letters are totally free, and are meant to be encouraging and helpful to people who are going through tough times.

His current goal is to write and deliver one thousand motivational letters to people, whether they live in Helena or not. If you know someone who could use some kind words right about now and you're thinking this could be a cool idea, you can request a latter at Add Value's Facebook page.
