ABOUT THE PROJECT

Connecting humans

Talking to Strangers is a non-profit community project facilitating connection between 'strangers' anywhere, via snail mail and email.

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 isolation gap between us by letting humans anywhere sign up to send & receive mail with people they don’t know, via snail mail or email, simply, safely & securely. 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

1. 2. 3. 4.

We'll send your mail to someone you don't know
