It’s that time of year again, folks.
Ok, look. I know that some of you out there probably are all cynical about Valentine’s Day. Even if you’re ridiculously in love, you maybe hate the commercialization.
Me too. Love isn’t about a one-day-a-year-get-out-of-the-dog-house-free card. You get it. I get it.
You know who else gets it? Porridge Papers. Every year they host Love on the Run. This is year number 5. So what makes Love on the Run different? Well, for one thing, it’s free.
Volunteers, sponsors, donations, and the hard work of the employees of Porridge Papers make this event happen. And it’s pretty cool.
You come in and type a note on an antique typewriter. Put it in a bottle, then into a bag. Oh, and you can stick an awesome little instant photo in with your note, too, courtesy of The Leekers Photography. Then come Valentine’s Day, Porridge Papers Volunteers — excuse me, valenteers — will hand deliver your note.
It’s a cool way to say something meaningful to someone you love.
Oh, and before we get to the preview photos, like I said above: this thing is FREE! Want to help keep it free? Check out the Love on the Run site and find out how you can donate.
That’s it. On with the photos. No shop kittens were harmed during this photo shoot (despite attempts to eat the decorations)…
