Join the Alliance!

i am in love with 16 Sparrows 'Letter Alliance Kit'. When i saw this on their website i instantly thought it would make an amazing gift for anyone who still fancies snail mail. i personally adore snail mail. i love sending it and receiving it. i can say, i personally put more effort and thought into a letter than most of my emails. not to say i don't love email! it is just that a letter is something special. Ofcourse, i was an avid note writer in elementary school/junior high/high school.Perhaps my love of the hand written word stems from that. As the mission statement of The Letter Alliance states;
"In this era of instantaneous communication, a handwritten letter is a rare and wondrous item. The Letter Writers Alliance is dedicated to preserving this art form; neither long lines, nor late deliveries, nor increasing postal rates will keep us from our mission. As a member of the Letter Writers Alliance, you will carry on the glorious cultural tradition of letter writing. You will take advantage of every opportunity to send tangible correspondence. Prepare your pen and paper, moisten your tongue, and get ready to write more letters!"

The bag is also very attractive. Notice, in the bottom picture, how the bag features a small pocket on the side
to hold letters. that is a nice example of attention to detail!

The kit includes:
• LWA membership, member card, LWA badge & welcome letter
• LWA stationery (set of 6 writing papers & envelopes)
• LWA Correspondence Flats (set of 8 flats & envelopes)
• LWA calling cards (set of 24 cards)
• LWA member tote bag (Dimensions: 15" X 14", Weight: 0.87lb.)

You can find the kit here.
