Hand Written Letters

BY DOAN LINH
@ VOL 9 ON OCT 01, 2016

“I use handwritten letters to listen and encourage people…”

In "Hand Written Letters", from PechaKucha Night Ho Chi Minh City Vol.9Doan Linh started "Letter to Angel", a non-profit organisation committed to bringing the lost art of handwritten letters back to people in Vietnam and around the world. In this presentation, she shares with us her vision behind L2A and what she hopes to achieve through it. It would be unfair to mention that she’s only 20 years old because her thoughts are much bigger the tiny number! Grab some paper and a pen, you might want to hand write your loved ones a letter right after listening to her talk.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Thursday, December 8th, 2016.
