'Snail Mail My Email' brings back old-fashioned letter-writing

A high-tech project is trying to bring back an old-fashioned idea: written letters.

Snail Mail My Email is a month-long project out of San Francisco.

People write letters to friends or family and email them to the project. Volunteers then write out the letters by hand, include some extra flare, like artwork or a flower, and put them in the mail.

The organizer says too many people these days are relying on hurried emails and online messages.

"In a culture overrun with instant gratification and on-demand services, this project cultivates appreciation for the lost art of letter writing," the organization said on its website.
