Who are we ?
10 cousins, aged from 14 to 24, students or schooled in Lille, Paris, The Hague, Lausanne, Montreal…
From engineers to comedians, salespeople to fans of literature, we all became postmen
to spread your words of love.
Whether as a French teacher in Zimbabwe or rugby coach in Morocco, in the library or on the field, she is always happy.
Currently at the Hague’s international school, he would gladly replace 95% of his proposed classes with surf classes.
An IT student in Lausanne, she would rather prioritize her aquatic and high altitude challenges than her trips to the library.
Year 10 pupil in Lille, he excels in the art of surfing on the internet, either for nerdy information or recordings of the matches of Olympique de Marseilles.
After living in 9 different countries, she decided to come back to France to apply her business education to urban farming projects.
Sporty and studying engineering in Lille, he is faster at emptying beers and doing push-ups than replying to messages on time.
Actress, student and gardener, we never know from where she’s going to enter: yard or garden? Intermittently waiting for fame, she is a respected elder.
In year 11 in Lille, she is our big-hearted pianist. She prefers by far her friends than Pythagoras.
At the German school of the Hague, he quickly replaced his school lessons with acrobatics on the trampoline.
A fan of literature with a passionate nature, she is in prépa in the Paris region. She can talk for hours about Spinoza, art, or about her projects, which most of the time are confusing.
Our values reflect those of a band of cousins, and the love they promoted.
We are simple, informal and down-to-earth. We want each step the letters go through – from when they are written to when they are distributed – to be a simple and & pleasant experience for the humans involved. Simplicity starts between our team’s interactions.
Whatever we are doing today, we will do better tomorrow. Our success – and much of the fun – lies in developing new ways to bring joy in the senior’s life. Today we do so by sending letters, but we might do something completely different tomorrow. One goal – create smiles.
We put our heart in everything we do. We do less if doing more reduce the quality because 1 real smile is way better than 100 fake smiles. Togetherness is at the heart of the 1L1S culture. We are stronger when we trust each other, pull in the same direction and have fun together.
