FAQ

Q1) Who will be receiving the letter?

Answer: We will be mailing your letter out to various members of the BLIA subchapters and temple devotees.

 

Q2) What should I write about, since I do not know who I am writing for?

Answer: We will be superimposing your letter into the a template (chosen by yours, truly), printing them and physically mailing them out!

Q4) Should I expect a return mail from the recipient(s)?
