Description:

Let's face we all have lonely days, days where will feel somewhat useless and hopeless. For this swap you will send one partner a letter that they will not open a day when they are under grey emotional clouds. Your missive should be profile based and of course positive and supportive. Fun add-ins are encouraged, but not required. On the back of the envelope write the name of the swap so they know to not open until the needed time. Rate with 5 once you receive a letter. Must have a rating of at least 4.7 No Newbies, can't risk someone not following through. Let's strive to make someone's down-day brighter.

Newbies aren't the worst. It is sad to make such assumptions that newbies would not stick to their words. As a newbie, I found some swap appaling by the lack of empathy shown by the organisers. I am autistic and I am a newbie and I would not play with someone's emotions.

Newbies can be fine, but you should emphasize that rating is important, so even if they don't open the letter until the day they need it, they should rate that they received it -- I'm too often frustrated wondering if a swap reached it's partner,

Hello June Moon, I did state that we should rate a 5 upon receiving our letters. Thanks for looking out for the best for this swap. Vintagecraft, It is frustrating to be new to Swapbot and not be able to join all the swaps that interest you. I remember those times, all too well. Don't take it personally; within most groups or clubs one must start at a beginer level and earn one's stripes. All the best to you both, Readergirl.

This swap sounds great! As someone with multiple chronic illnesses I struggle with daily pain, anxiety and depression. A nice letter would be great to have on a day where I’m really struggling. Thanks for coming up with this swap idea!

I agree with @PrettyAlice This is a novel idea and a great premise. It is important to create awareness for feelings that everyone has, but are usually stigmatized if expressed. Thanks for having this swap.
