Several years ago, I was an active member of this community for awhile and it is the loveliest thing ever, ever.
You click a button and you see a random address, sometimes a name, sometimes a little scrap of information about the person (“loves bridges, kerouac, and mixtapes”). And you send them something. Maybe it’s a funny postcard from your favorite coffeeshop, maybe it’s a bag of your favorite tea, maybe it’s a collage of images from your favorite magazine. Maybe it’s a handmade card.
And that’s it.
Reciprocation isn’t the point and, in fact, it isn’t even encouraged. You’re simply touched by some stranger in maybe Iceland or maybe Gary, Indiana and then you simply touch someone else.
It’s better than anti-depressants. It’s fucking amazing.
