Email Debt Forgiveness Day

Celebrate E-mail Debt Forgiveness Day! 


Here at Reply All, we invented a holiday call Email Debt Forgiveness Day - a holiday to erase all the guilt that comes from being bad at email. If there’s an email response you’ve wanted to send but been too anxious to send, you can send it on August 31, without any apologies or explanations for all the time that has lapsed. It doesn’t matter how long it’s been. Just include a link to this explainer, the one you’re reading right now, so that your recipient knows what’s going on. Together, we can all make our inboxes less stressful. 


So, with August 31 right around the corner, how can you participate? Easy:

  1. Start thinking now-- what’s the one e-mail you’ve been avoiding.
  2. On August 31, write your response as though the e-mail just arrived that morning.
  3. It doesn’t matter how long it’s been. Just include a link to this explainer, the one you’re reading right now, so that your recipient knows what’s going on.
  4. Click send.
  5. Take a deep breath, and feel the weight lift off your shoulders. Go about your day a little lighter.
