Love Letter America was created by a group of friends with a shared vision for reminding our members of Congress of American values – using art.

Erin Allweiss, co-founder of socially conscious media firm No. 29, formerly worked on Capitol Hill where a lot of time was spent reading letters from constituents. So she asked her brilliant and talented friend, artist Oliver Jeffers, if he might be willing to make some art – covering a range of themes and topics – that could be turned into postcards. He said yes, and his five cards were the first to grace the site. With that…Love Letter America was born.

This is not about being a Democrat or a Republican, but about being Americans who love this country. We want at least one card from all 50 states so “We the People” can be heard. Cards have poured in from Louisiana, South Carolina, Texas – and from expats from Berlin to Paris.

If you’re an artist who wants to contribute, email us at info@loveletteramerica.com. Images should be 300 dpi and standard postcard size (at least 3-1/2 inches high x 5 inches long/no more than 4-1/4 inches high x 6 inches long).

Love Letter America has also partnered with WriteThePower.com, so those of us without printers can pay to print, stamp and mail a message! A portion of the proceeds will go to the ACLU.

We all share this country, and it’s on us to remind our representatives of what we value. So download some art, and write your reps. Then download another card, and do it again.

With Love,
Love Letter America
