Recently, I was reminded of a mixtape swap I took part in when I was younger. It was as simple as it sounds; sign up, send someone you don’t know a mixtape, get one back in return. It was great. And I thought, I wish there was a mixtape swap for mothers, where we could swap not music, but our experiences. Our joys, our sorrows. The hard bits and the happy bits. A swap where we could share a little bit of our lives, safely, anonymously, with no one judging, knowing that our stories were being heard.
And thus the idea behind #lettersfrommothers. An anonymous letter-swap, where we can share our stories, our experiences, and our motherhood. A project to give voice to mothers’ stories from around the world. A space for us to truly hear each other.
