Love On The Run...Year 9!


by Christopher James January 10, 2016

In this era of Facebook, Twitter, computer generated greeting cards, and cell phone texts, Porridge Papers and its supporters are giving the community a chance to say “Happy Valentine’s Day” with old-school methods and delivered in an unforgettable way.

Nine years ago Porridge Papers hosted Love On The Run, a free event founded on the idea of giving love back to Lincoln. What started as a crazy idea has turned in to the single largest Valentine’s event in Lincoln, NE.

We clear out the studio the weekend before Valentine’s Day and set up all the decor. As you step through the doors you will be pointed to the photo booth where will take a mini Polaroid of you to include with your note. Then there is the Library of Love if you’re needing a bit of inspiration, the DJ’s are spinning the sounds of love. Local businesses have donated coffee, cupcakes and cookies for you to sample all while you compose your note. When you are all done we carefully help to roll it up and place it in a little glass bottle which is set inside a handmade bag with pink and white tissue! We even have a guest book for you to sign and also request that you sign the person’s name on the outside of our windows!

The response of the local community has been nothing short of overwhelming as each year’s Love On The Run has grown larger than the last.

We will have 500 bottles of love to fill this year! Love On The Run will take place -

Saturday the 13h 10am-6pm

As always, Love on the Run would not be possible without the help of our sponsors and volunteers like YOU! If you'd like to help with this year's event, email
