Sign Up for #SnailMail

It’s that time – time to #Write_On! April is just around the corner and that means fellow #Write_On participants are taking the challenge to send a piece of handwritten snail every day for a month. I’m signed up for the challenge once again, so that’s where you come in! If you’d like to receive a piece of mail from in April, simply share your information with me above. No strings attached, just a bit of snail mail magic in your mailbox from me to you.

Support #Write_On 2016


WriteOnSlide-145Last year I joined the #Write_On challenge for the first time and fell in love with it right away. Hosted by Egg Press and Hello! Lucky, snail mail lovers may sign up for a letterpress card pack in exchange for promising to send a handwritten piece of mail every day during the month of April. I’m proud to say that I passed the challenge with flying colors. I even shared some of my favorite card hoarding tips over on DIY Network.

We’re less than a month away from the 2016 challenge. This year the organizers are hoping to make 10,000 kits available to eager mail lovers, but they need our help. For just a small donation you can help make more kits available to challenge participants. Head over to Write_On’s Indiegogo page to learn more and to see all of the AMAZING perks available in exchange for your generous donation.
