Where to start? 365 days is a lot of letter writing time. I haven't really got hard numbers for the amount of letters I sent, but I average around 85 a month which gives a ball park of a little over 1000 pieces of mail. So that's just one (admittedly fairly prolific) member at work. As of 12:01AM on January 1, 2013, we have 3,407 members in the Letter Writers Alliance. If half of them are half as active as I am in their letter writing, that's still 850,000 letters sent by members last year. DID YOU SEE THAT NUMBER?
Let's be even more pessimistic. Let's suppose that only a quarter of our members are a quarter as busy writing letters as I am. That's around 212,500 letters sent last year by members. GOOD LORD THAT'S A LOT OF LETTERS. In U.S.P.S. First Class stamps, that's $95,625.00
Feel free to leave your End of Year numbers in the comments. There were a couple left on our "2013" post which inspired me to make these calculations. Thanks for writing so many letters. Now go write more!
