Let's send a letter to YouTube!

12 Nov 2019

 

If you can afford to spend $8 (if you are in the US) or $10 (if you are not in the US), you can send a letter by certified mail.

This means someone has to sign for receipt of the letter, so there's a better chance it will get seen.

If that's too expensive, you can still send a normal letter for $3.

Send a letter by certified mail (credit card)

If you don't have a credit card but you have PayPal, and you want to send a letter by certified mail, use our instructions for PayPal.

1. Go to the OnlineCertifiedMail Signup Page.

2. Enter the information to create an account and click "SIGNUP".

If you are not in the United States: just enter your information and pick any US state from the "State" menu for now. We will fix this later.

3. After clicking "SIGNUP", you should see a page with a message saying "Account Created" and a link to the OnlineCertifiedMail Login Page. Click the link and log in using your new account information.

4. Now it's time to enter the letter. In the "Name Your Letter" box, you can put whatever you want.

5. Click "Type Your Letter".

6. You should see a text box you can type into.

You can start by copying and pasting our base letter into the box.

You can edit this letter as you like, but please stay respectful! Please don't insult anyone at YouTube. Insulting them weakens our cause. It does not strengthen it!

7. Under "Return Address", you can either choose the return address you entered when you created the account, or use OnlineCertifiedMail's own address. This "Return Mail Processing Center" option costs an extra $2 since they have to deal with the mail.

If you are not in the US, you should probably choose the "Return Mail Processing Center" option.

8. Under "Recipient Address", click "New Recipient Address", then enter the following information:

Recipient NameOffice of the CEO
Company/Title/OtherYouTube, LLC
Address901 Cherry Ave
CitySan Bruno
StateCalifornia
Zip94066

9. Click "SAVE ADDRESS".

10. Click "CONTINUE".

11. You should see the "Review Order" page with the recipient and sender address information, as well as the final price. If everything looks good, click "ADD LETTER TO CART".

12. Now you should see your "shopping cart". Click "PAY $_.__ NOW." (There will be a dollar amount on the button.)

13. A window should pop up where you can enter your credit card information. Enter it and click "Pay $_.__".

The letter will be sent!

14. Comment on the Youtubers Union Facebook Group (or, if you don't use Facebook, email us) to say that you sent a letter! And if you can, please take a picture of yourself! You can hide your face if you want to stay anonymous.

That's it!
