“You matter to me. In a way I cannot explain, you matter to me. And you, you are a marvel… you and all the parts of you.”
It’s not the kind of thing you normally write to a complete stranger.
But after graduating from college and moving to New York City, Hannah Brencher was feeling anxious and depressed. She found herself not wanting to be around other people and “just really unravelling”.
Then she started writing love letters to strangers and leaving them all over the city. The first letter she left on a train simply addressed: “If you find this letter then it’s for you.”

The poster is aimed to help people with learning difficulties make both emergency and non-emergency calls.
HAMPSHIRE Constabulary has launched a new poster to help adults with learning disabilities call the police.
In line with Mencap’s Learning Disability Week (August 19-25) the new poster aims to be easier to read and explains when to dial 101 and 999.
Chief Constable Andy Marsh said: “Some of the feedback we’ve received is that often people with a learning disability aren’t sure when to call 101 and when to call 999. “I hope that this poster, alongside the work we’ve been doing to engage with communities affected by disability, will encourage people to come forward to report problems they’re experiencing, demonstrate that the police are here to help and that we can make a difference.”
