We want to speak to you in an entirely different language this year—the language of time and care. We want our words to find you—not just on a screen, but physically, in your hands.
In 2021, we want to surprise you at your mailbox and make you smile, no matter what kind of day you’ve had.
That’s why 11 of us at DevaTree have gathered together to bring you something we call Treasured Letters, sweet little care packages that will arrive in your physical mailbox once a month. It’s our way of walking alongside you in 2021.
We love connecting online, but we also miss the times we’ve had together breathing, sensing, and sharing physical space. Those times were so…tangible. Which is why we want to share something new with you, in physical form.
We want to use our hands, paper, pens, creativity, and time to surprise and delight you every month.
Emailing, commenting, and messaging are fine but they’re often hurried, even reactionary. On the other hand, a handwritten letter is thoughtful, tangible, and deliberate. The simple act of writing to people you hold dear involves a different level of care and intentionality.
When you join us for Treasured Letters, you’ll receive a handwritten letter from a different DevaTree team member each month.
You’ll receive a letter, plus extra goodies you can hold in your hands, pass around your household, read without wifi, tuck in a book, or display on a shelf. Each month, we’ll send you something as unique and interesting as the human who crafted it, something that lifts your spirits, or makes you think. No Zoom, no social media, no scrolling, no tapping—just you and us and the postal service.
How It Works
1. You decide you want a little surprise package from DevaTree in your real, physical mailbox once a month for the next 11 months (February through December, 2021). Late subscribers welcome.
2. Subscribe below, choosing the option that best suits your means.
3. Each month we’ll send you your copy of a personal letter plus a little gift or two from our hearts to yours—a poem, drawing, creation, a card we’ve pulled for you, or something we think you just can’t live without…it’s a surprise!
Think of it as a CSA
The idea came from our friend, Canadian musician Madeleine Roger, who likens her monthly letters to a CSA (Community-Supported Agriculture), where subscribers receive regular garden goodies delivered to their homes. By signing up for Treasured Letters, you’ll be a part of our CSA—Community Supported Art (as Madeleine calls it)! Instead of receiving greens, you’ll receive heartfelt creations that feed your spirit.
We can’t wait to get a little closer, to surprise you at your mailbox!
From our hands to yours, with love,
Tamika, Carolyn, Candice, K-Bhava, Santosha, Lotus, Misty, Brenda McMorrow, Catherine Stilo, Wendy Brown, and Catherine Tansley.
