The concept of this site is simple. I want people to send me things. Anything. If it's legal to send through the mail and won't cause harm to the recipient (or anyone along the way) I want it. Stickers, pens, shirts (extra-large or extra-small), cars, food items, creepy dolls, crafts, puppets, sketches, poems, goats, pajamas, suitcases of cash, vintage photos of Victorian women, cameras, remote control helicopters, robots, computers, gift cards, small kitchen appliances, tooth paste, cookies, tools, knives, snacks, cat toys (or food), towels, art, garden supplies, business cards, unicorns, books, chocolates, autographed photos of Stana Katic or Anna Torv or Frederick Weller, CDs, DVDs, musical instruments, candy, masks, postage, two Segways, stuff that makes noise, electronics, moon rocks, slippers, military medals, bars of gold/silver, software (OS X.8, Windows 7+, iOS, Android), concert tickets, airfare, anthropological treasures, TV accessories, bags, paisley anything, and etc., etc., etc.!
To this end I plan to send out bunches of letters soliciting items from individuals or companies, but I figured you can get ahead of the curve! At this point I am taking unsolicited items. If what I receive is interesting I will feature it in an upcoming blog post. If it is stupid or boring or something I can't use I will sell it on eBay to fund the operation of this site or the lifestyle I have become accustomed to. I may also donate it to charity or my local library or just give it away to the readers of this site. I do not promise to be nice when writing about anything I am sent! I also may never write about what you do send.
In the mean time I am open to unsolicited items. Send me stuff. I want stuff. You have stuff you don't want. Let's make each other happy!
Things I don't want: Live things or formerly live things, food you made yourself, anything illegal, sexist, racist, bigoted, or likely to make me think less of you or bring down my day. Sex toys that are not directly from the manufacturer. I'd prefer to not add to this list, but I will if you make me.
I originally had the idea for this site sometime back around 2007. I like getting things in the mail. I like free stuff. I like a lot of companies, so I thought, "What if I could get companies I like to send me free stuff in the mail?" I wrote a letter to Apple and when I didn't like their response I wrote another letter to Apple. I found I liked writing the letters more than I liked getting the stuff, so I launched jackassletters.com. I've decided to revisit the original idea.
Let's make this work!
