VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., March 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Dreifa Letterboxes announced "A Million Notes from Dad," a national note writing campaign to encourage fathers to leave a legacy for their children through the written word.
Through the sale of one million letterboxes, Dreifa hopes to encourage one million fathers to put pen to paper and share their love in a way that can be preserved forever.
Speaking about the initiative, Dreifa Letterboxes Founder Joanna Campbell, Ph.D., said, "The relationship between a father and child is often distant and malnourished. The simple act of a handwritten note can go a long way in closing the gap and strengthening this bond. We hope that millions of children will receive notes from their fathers that will inspire them to write in return. If we don't take necessary steps to preserve handwriting, we stand to lose not only our creativity, but also our history and legacy."
Have you ever thought about the consequences of your child not being able to read or write?
According to Reading is Fundamental, "nearly 40 percent of U.S. 4th graders do not achieve basic levels of reading proficiency. The tragedy is that these children may never fully participate in American society." Due to this trend, many states are calculating future prison bed needs on the reading proficiency of its 4th grade classes.
Did you also know that 32 million American adults can't read? We are facing a literacy crisis in America! Together, we can make great strides to turn around this paralyzing trend.
In an age of texts and tweets, people rarely take the time to leave behind a tangible reminder for their family and friends. Heartfelt communication etched on paper lives on forever. An email or text can be deleted with one swipe of a key. A handwritten note with your father's signature can't be deleted or duplicated.
Note writing won't solve the literacy crisis, but it provides an elegant first step in addressing a critical issue.
Dreifa Letterboxes are the place for storing treasured correspondence. Each letterbox comes with 15 note cards that will inspire dads to pick up a pen and write a sincere message that their children can preserve forever.
