Why you should write to someone you love

Matt Adams is on a mission to get us back to basics, when it comes to communicating with our loved ones.

Like ourselves, the New Yorker has used social media and other forms of technology to communicate with loved ones. So, he decided to create a project to get people writing again.

He set up an area with paper, pens, clipboards and even crayons to encourage people to sit down and write a postcard to someone special.

Much to his surprise, many people stopped to write a postcard to someone they cared about. Watch the results below.
