ABOUT THE PROJECT

Bridging the gap

Many of us grew up being warned not to 'talk to strangers', but as adults, despite living in a hyper-connected digital world, we are suffering from increasing rates of social isolation.

So much so, that it's now considered a major public health issue. This project aims to help bridge the social isolation gap by connecting people, anywhere to send & receive mail, via snail mail or email, simply, safely & securely. 

HOW IT WORKS

We'll post your mail

Receive mail

You can choose to receive mail from other members too. We'll never share your details with anyone, ever.

Each contact with a human being is so rare, so precious, one should preserve it.
