Founder & President

"I cannot explain how deeply grateful I am for all of the support we have received, and for each wonderful person that is a part of our growing family. Thank you for being a part of the team who fights to put smiles on the faces of children who are fighting a battle that no kid ever should."


Darby Sween

Vice President

"Hi! I’m Darby Sween. I am currently a sophomore at University of Wisconsin-Madison studying marketing and management in the business school. This semester, I helped start a LOL club at Madison, which has been a huge success! I am an original Letters of Love member, back in the very first meeting in Ms. Hudgens art room at Orono High school nearly 4 years ago now. This organization has meant so much to me and been a part of my life in some form constantly for the last four years of my life."


Berit Francis

Head of External Relations

"I joined the “Letters of Love Global” after serendipitously meeting Founder Grace Berbig and being monumentally impressed with her, her profound story and the meaningful work the organization is doing. I, too, believe in the importance of spreading love and kindness through letters/cards (especially to those individuals with the greatest need including children with illnesses). I sincerely believe the in the positive impact of spreading loving messages throughout the world!"

Darby is a Marketing and Management major at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.


Leo Kelley

Chief Financial Officer

"I initially got involved with Letters of Love when Grace Berbig offered me a position as the treasurer. After getting to know Grace and what Letters of Love is all about, it was an opportunity I simply could not pass up. I have only been a member of the amazing Letters of Love family for a short while, but even in the last month, it has been a pleasure to help Grace’s dreams and visions for this non-profit seem more than attainable. I am excited to see what new avenues we can try, and I take pride in helping extend the reach of this unbelievable organization."
