A former Drumheller resident has made a name for herself in Edmonton by ambushing people with kind thoughts.

Ashley Green, nee' Hemming, started up 'Love Letters 2 Strangers' in 2011. She started writing nice messages and randomly handing them out to members of the general public.

“I have handed out a love letter to certain people at a specific time, I guess, when they needed it. It triggered something in them and they wanted to tell me their life story or they wanted to share something with me. I get a lot of hugs from people, which is nice, and a lot of people that smile and some that start crying. It's really amazing sometimes the positive reactions that I get immediately.”

The initiative has really taken off in Edmonton and Green is coming home to Drumheller for a 'Love Letters 2 Strangers' workshop February 28 at Grace Lutheran Church. For more information, go online at
