Snail mail my email

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Thousands of people are asking to have their email sent the old fashioned way. It's all part of a month long project called Snail Mail My Email.

Basically, you email a letter to a volunteer, who handwrites it, and even adds a doodle like a flower petal. Then, they put it in an envelope and mail it for you. All this, for free.

The creator says it's a way to make the world less "cold and impersonal." The group has already sent letters to the president and even an acceptance letter to Harry Potter's Hogwarts School of Wizardry, although, they admit most of them are love letters.

The project ends August 15th. Here's the website:, or you can email the group at
