There’s something just so rad about real mail.
It leaves an impression on us because it’s an event. A surprise experience.
It’s new and it’s tactile and because it’s usually unexpected, it fills our senses with wonder.
It makes us feel special. It makes us feel loved.
Just when you thought today’s mail was all Safeway coupons, So-FI loan offers and the previous tenant's 10th court notice, real mail sneaks its way between the nonsense.
It arrives on the scene as if to say, “And you thought it was an all junk mail and bills kind of day... gotcha!”
When you get real mail you know these 4 things to be true:
1. A person saw a card, thought of you, and bought it.
(Hopefully, although we all have that questionable sticky handed friend.)
2. They located a pen, collected their thoughts, and spent time
writing their feelings on a little piece of paper.
3. They knew that with just the slightest slip of their tongue, a mouth
paper cut was imminent, but licked the paper anyways.
4. They had or knew where to find a stamp.
That’s a lot of freakin' hoops to jump through for a 5 x 7 sized handwritten message!
Someone loves you, and real mail is physical proof of it.
So why the hell are we not sending and receiving more of that good juju, people?!
Friends Do This is more than just mildly inappropriate greeting cards.
It’s about sparking joy.
It’s about showing up for the people we love even when our own world is a total dumpster fire.
It’s about streaking your neighborhood, totally sober because you know it will make your friends smile.
Because, that’s what friends do.
Meet the squad → Jordan, Jules, and Carolyn. We're just three weirdos trying to make it in this crazy world.
Our love language is 'Words of Affirmation' (shocker), we have the laugh wrinkles of an 80 year old, and if you ever need a stamp, home slice, we got you.
