Mysterious Letters

>> Monday, October 26

I'm a HUGE fan of hand-written letters. In fact I sent out four of them just last week. Frankly, there is nothing that says I love you better.

Well, Michael and Lenka have decided to take such sentiments one step further; they plan to send a hand-written letter to every household on earth. Yeah, all billion or so of them. So far they've showered one town in Nothern Ireland with their love, Cushendall, garnering a BBC news cover. Pledge with me and help them pounce on their next town.

Project site: Mysterious Letters
Pledge goal: $2,000
My pledge: $5
Deadline: November 9

About is a website run by five guys based in Brooklyn, NY. The concept is simple: A person has a project that needs a little boost to get started. This person posts their project to and promises rewards based on how much money people pledge to their project. Other people sign into and pledge money towards projects they favor. If a project meets or exceeds the funding goal by the deadline, the backers' credit-cards are charged (these are donations, not loans, btw) and the person begins their project and sends out the rewards to their backers upon completion of their project. Projects can be anything really, but often include producing a music album, saving collections from the dump, funding a trip, and even making a mural into handbags. Learn more.
