"In this era of instantaneous communication, a handwritten letter is a rare and wondrous item."
So begins the mission statement of The Letter Writers Alliance, a group dedicated to preserving the "art" of letter writing.
They call it a "glorious cultural form."
There are many other groups who love mail and encourage letters -- Good Mail Day , Postcrossing, The Letter Exchange , and Viva Snail Mail, and The Missive Maven -- just to name a few.
