I have posted a project from Jeffrey Yamaguchi's 52 Projects before, and I thought it was time to share another...
Take some chopsticks from your kitchen drawer, along with $25 cash and a take-out Chinese food menu, seal them up in an envelope. Mail off the envelope to one of your currently unemployed friends, you college-aged kid brother or sister, or a person you know who is financially strapped at the moment.
Keep it anonymous. Do not hand-write the mailing address or enclose a note. Include the take-out Chinese food menu regardless of the person's geographic location; you want to be sure that the person you mail the envelope to gets the right message and orders up some good take-out.

The book has oodles more projects that revolve around letters, snail mail and photography. I suggest you pick it up or check it out from your library. It will make great pen pal ammunition.
