(WXIA) -- We are approaching the holiday season, a time of year that's about gratitude and the joy giving. Here at 11Alive, we invite you to join us to "Leave Nothing Unsaid." It's a movement that was started by Jody Noland, a former IBM executive who exchanged her corporate life for what she feels is her vocation -- helping all of us "Leave Nothing Unsaid."
Leaving Nothing Unsaid is about more than writing a letter. It's a specific way to tell the people in your life what they mean to you, right now. On Thursday, Jaye Watson will share Noland's story, and the stories of people whose lives have been changed and improved by a single letter. Noland led 11Alive's morning team in a 'Leave Nothing Unsaid' workshop. Throughout the week, members of our team will share their letters live on the air.
In the meantime, with Noland's help, we are giving you a chance to write a letter and 'Leave Nothing Unsaid' to those you care about.

Section 1 - Share your feelings:
The purpose of this section is to provide a perspective about YOU. This is your opportunity to express what is has meant to be in that person's life. It's a place to put into words your love and affection. It can be short and sweet but it's very important.
Section 2 - Affirm their uniqueness:
This is the heart of your letter. The purpose is to highlight what you see as the greatest attributes about the recipient, and why those qualities are so important.
Section 3 - Share your hopes and dreams:
This section provides your opportunity to convey your words of wisdom. What advice would you share. What things would you want them to always remember?
