A world without letters would be a cold one. It's a world that may quickly be upon us. As digital communication grows, the art of letter writing fades.

Imagine a soldier fighting overseas, without a folded piece of hope to carry in his pocket. Or a child in the hospital without those paper hugs from relatives far away. Handwritten words of intimacy conquer any distance or length of time. Let's not lose something so important.

Help save the US Postal Service by pledging to write one letter a month, and help keep a part of our heritage alive.
