Do you have a loved one who needs a pick-me-up? Perhaps an older relative living in a long-term care home, or someone of any age who has been in the hospital for a while?

Are you going through a rough time, physically or emotionally, and could really use some words of encouragement, or simply need a distraction?

If you or anyone you know is going through a rough time for any reason, receiving a letter or card in the mail won't solve your problems, but it just might bring a little warmth to your soul.

I enjoy writing letters and despite the ease of email, I still believe in the power of "snail mail." There's just something about opening your mailbox and finding a little surprise from someone who cared enough to take the time to handwrite a note, despite their busy lives.

Let me make your day or the day of someone you know by sending a greeting card or a letter.

You'll obviously need to trust me with an address for this service. I'm also happy to send to a P.O. box if you have one.

Training & Qualifications


I love sending and receiving letters in the mail and I enjoy brightening people's day with little surprises. I also have fairly neat handwriting, so you'll hopefully be able to understand what I wrote.

Availability & Preferences


My availability is flexible, but it may take me a few days to respond to your message.

Trading Preference: Pay it forward – pass on the good deed!

About Mariana Abeid-McDougall

𝐁𝐞𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚 𝐝𝐞𝐚𝐥/𝐬𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐦𝐞 𝐚 𝐦𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐚𝐠𝐞, 𝐩𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐞 𝐧𝐨𝐭𝐞: * I do not under any circumstances promote MLM products; please do not request my services for this. * I am on Simbi to barter. Please do... not contact me with the intent of funneling me to your paid products. ___ 𝗔𝗯𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝗠𝗲 I'm an experienced freelance writer and editor who loves to meet people, barter, and help others. I'm also an avid traveller, a happily married wife since 2006, and a homeschooling mother of three children born in 2010, 2012, and 2014. I have an extensive background in various fields, as I have been working since 1997 in various jobs, often simultaneously. I have been a lifeguard, an adult swimming lessons instructor, a retail sales clerk, a call centre operator, a teacher, a Registered Kinesiologist, a personal trainer, a writer, an editor, and the list goes on. I also served 7 years in the Canadian Naval Reserves as a military clerk. Aside from my professional experience, my travel experience is also extensive. I've lived in 3 different countries, and our family has had the chance to do some wonderful travelling. Before we had children, my husband and I toured for 2 months around Canada and the US, sightseeing during the day and swing dancing at night (swing dancing is how we met). We cycled 557 kilometers with our kiddos when they were 6, 4, and 2. And we spent 9 months between 2018 and 2019 travelling in an RV all over the US and Canada. I'm interested in a variety of things, and my services on here reflect that. If you've ever heard the term "renaissance soul," "multipotentialite," or "scanner," that's me. I hope that you'll find a service that'll be useful to you among my offerings, and I look forward to trading with you.show more
