WHAT IS THE HI PROJECT?
I always smile when I get a piece of post in the mail. It doesn’t matter what it is. It could be something I ordered and am expecting; it could be a regular postcard from my brother-in-law, who loves to send them; it could be an actual letter from a friend.
Sometimes I dabble in watercolors. In the dark days immediately following the 2016 election, I penned a little blue creature with a snaggle-toothed grin and green eyeballs and posted him to my facebook page. He made me smile on creation, and folks said he did the same for them.
Months later, I was in my regular habit of dropping a quick email to a friend to say hello when it came to me. Why not combine some of these things that make me happy?
Meet Bunt. He’s your “Hi” ambassador. He exists so you can make a personal connection with someone, anyone you’re thinking of, in short order. I had some postcards printed up and they’ve proven to be popular.* You can order them in packs of five for $5 + $2.67 shipping for up to three packs. (I don’t know how much for more than that, but I’ll find out if you like.) E-mail me if you want a set and I’ll mail them to you. And if you’re the recipient of a “Hi” postcard, please let me know where you are! I’d love to know where Bunt has landed.
