WNW Member #96 Ivan Cash created Snail Mail My Email back in 2011 in an effort to resuscitate the written letter. He invited anyone in the world to send him an email for a family member or friend, and then he'd write it out in a letter and mail it free of charge.
Since then, a total of 431 volunteers have artistically interpreted and collectively sent 13,968 letters across the world. Ivan gathered the most memorable letters and moments from this project in the Snail Mail My Email book, published by Sourcebooks last November.
Now you have the chance to join in. This week, from November 11 - 17, you can type a message to anyone and send it here, where it will be handwritten and mailed for free via regular mail. The first one's on Ivan, but then it's up to you to keep the written letter alive and relevant.
