The winner is comment #3: Jamie

Last week, Sunnygram launched a new service for bringing mom and dad, or grandma and grandpa, into the digital age. Sunnygram assigns a unique email address to an older person (like, and the person’s friends and family can send unlimited messages and high resolution digital photos by email. Sunnygram then creates colorful newsletters on personalized stationery sent to the older person through the U.S. Mail.

Grandma can respond for free using a pre-paid letter or by leaving a voice message, both of which are emailed back to the original sender. Some of the feedback that they’ve received is that older relatives love being reconnected with friends and family through letters and are thrilled to see the bright-yellow Sunnygram envelopes arrive in the mail.

So if you’re looking for a brand new way to stay in touch with loved ones far away, check out Sunnygram!

    Wow, what a great idea! I love that I can use technology, which is what I’m most comfortable with, but the receiver can get the information the way that they’re most comfortable (regular mail). It’s the best of both worlds! Plus I think it’s cool that it comes in a big yellow envelope :)

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

    I wonder if they have bigger print for the sight imparied? I looked through the pages. I didn’t watch the video. Maybe that answered the question.

  23. Genevieve Larson says:

    My grandparents are in their late 70’s and live out of state. It would be so easy to get my kids to send them letters this way. I love this!

  34. Lori Morgan says:

    I love the fact that ” There is no limit to the number of people who can send emails. Once you’ve created the email address for your loved one, share it with all family members and friends who want to stay in touch.” This would be perfect for my Mom who has a “mail station” and can get simple emails but no computer and cannot receive pictures etc through the mail station. Thanks for the GREAT giveaway :-}
