Bruce Farrer, who collected and delivered the letters

Bruce Farrer

A teacher made his students write letters to their future selves AND then delivered them!

We’ve all been there, haven’t we? The teacher, who thinks he’s weirdly creative, that gets his students to write letters to themselves twenty years in the future. The kids put in a half-hearted attempt with the expectation that the teacher will throw their letter in the bin and it’ll never be seen again.

Well one teacher actually kept these letters. Bruce Farrer, a Canadian high school teacher, made sure he kept every single letter and delivered every one of them twenty years later. The results are interesting and uplifting. You can see a video about it here:
