SAY SOMETHING SPECIAL
As part of World Calligraphy Day, Manuscript Pen Company is partnering with Birmingham Children's Hospital for the 2nd year on the 'Say Something Special' campaign.
The campaign encourages people to handwrite a special letter, message or create an illustration to send to the children at Birmingham Children's Hospital. You can get involved by sending letters to Say Something Special c/o Small Man Media, 2nd Floor, 6 Waterloo Road, Wolverhampton, WV1 4BL.
Last year we received over 100 letters and notes from all over the world! These varied from beautiful calligraphic notes, to handwritten stories from celebrities, calligraphers and artists, schools, children and adults!
Each individual letter will be forwarded on to the Birmingham Children's Hospital alongside some Manuscript product for the hospital to use for their art classes and play sessions.
More information is available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
