Philanthropist Henri Zimand is sponsoring a love letter- writing competition in honor of his late wife, Anda, who died from breast cancer in 2001.
Zimand says that he and his wife were always exchanging love letters, but today, even around Valentines Day, he notes, People forget to do it.
The sweetest, sappiest letters may be submitted at AndaSpiritUSA.com until Feb. 7, when the 12 best letters will be chosen. On Feb. 12, the winning writers and their significant others will be flown to New York for three nights in the city and a romantic Valentines Day date.
Zimand says the panel of literary judges including a group called The Romance Writers of America are simply looking for a beautiful love letter. It needs to come from the heart.
He says the letter can be written to a girlfriend, boyfriend, husband, wife or even a dolphin. As Zimand puts it, This is an open competition. Were talking about love.
