February is... International Correspondence Writing Month
Or InCoWriMo as the cool kids call it. If Month of Letters isn't enough for you, why not take on this project as well. It's a similar concept. Write one letter, everyday of the month. You can take a picture of your letter and submit to the InCoWriMo site. It might be their "Letter du Jour" on their blog. They even have a list of 28 people who would love to get a letter from you.
P.S. The stamp in this post is the 2014 Global Flat Rate issue. It hasn't been released yet, but I can't wait!
In this era of instantaneous communication, a handwritten letter is a rare and wondrous item. The Letter Writers Alliance is dedicated to preserving this art form. Prepare your pen and paper, moisten your tongue, and get ready to write more letters!
