Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?

Ivan Cash is a snail mail guy.

The San Francisco and Amsterdam-based artist and graphic designer launched his latest, month-long interactive art project with a simple promise: send him an email and an address and a handwritten note with the same message will be physically mailed anywhere in the world, free of charge.

Cash writes that his project "seeks to both share the warm-fuzzy feeling of receiving a personalized letter as well as inspire people to send their own snail mail ... In a culture overrun with instant gratification and on-demand services, this project cultivates appreciation for the lost art of letter writing."

Messages can be up to 100 words and can include an added doodle, flower petal, spray of perfume, or lip stick kiss.

Send an him an email by August 15 and see more snail mails on the Snail Mail My Email website.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
