To get mail you must send mail

If you have drank the kool-aid and are game to try out this whole snail mail thing, I thought I would try to make it easy for you.

Here is a list of sites that facilitate the exchange of snail mail.

Some are global. Some organize in-person meet ups.  Some even take swapping letters to a whole new level by encouraging the sending of ‘stuff.’   Yeah, you had no idea right?  I know.

Give it a try yourself or get those kids you know involved.  It could be so retro it just might become new again.  Enjoy.

P.S.  This list is but a few sites I have come across in my snail mail travels.  I would love to continue to build it as a resource, so please let me know of other sites you would recommend or know about.
