Will Write for Stationery

True letter writers are satisfied simply with writing a letter. Though they’d be happy to receive a response, they don’t need one. For the authentic letter writer, the pleasure comes in the act of writing and thinking of the recipient.

Earlier this month Crane & Co. announced an initiative to reward selfless letter writers. It’s a contest called Pen Pals. All you have to do is write a letter–something you’ve done many times–and you WILL receive a response. You will also be automatically entered to receive Crane & Co. stationery (one entry person person).

I know what you’re thinking: What in the world do I write to a paper company? Tell them how glad you are that they’ve been making gorgeous paper for 200 years!

Here’s where to write:
