Let’s Get Postal: an experiment.

How long has it been since you got a hand-written note from a friend? (Birthday cards from your Mom don’t count.) I’m talking about a real note where someone took the time to say thank you or “just thinking of you today.”

That’s right… it’s probably been forever and a day. But if you’re like me, you get a thrill when you see a hand-addressed envelope in the mail box. And if it’s not another cleverly disguised funding solicitation, then baby, you’re blessed.

So I’ve got just a real simple offer for you:

Find a cool postcard, note, or any paper* that can be mailed, and write down the following:

1. Your name.

2. A fascinating fact about you.

3. “Private” if you want to keep the correspondence just between us — or “Post!” if I can share your note on my web site (blocking out your return address), and also a copy of the reply.

4. Your return address.

Then, mail it to:

Rribbitz Goes Postal
4601 Excelsior Blvd., Ste 313
St. Louis Park, MN 55416

Within two days of getting your note, I’ll send a speedy but thoughtful reply to the amazing facts you just provided me. I promise, it’ll be fun.

Who wants to play?? Wait, let me ask again…. who wants to get some mail?!

* Bonus points for anything with a frog or toad motif. As if I even HAD to say it…

  1. Dear Kim,
    I agree that hand written notes are a much appreciated art that needs to be revived. Yesterday, I spoke at the WIN Women’s Business Network on the inspiration of “The King’s Speech” for women in business. The sponsors wrote me a note by hand and left it with a token of their appreciation.
    That is the first time in years that a sponsor took the time to do that! We need more of that.
    I also have a local friend who sends me post cards and it is always a joy to get them.
