Checkout the `org-mime-subtree' subtree command.  It converts the
current subtree to an email, pulling email headers from subtree
properties, specifically

MAIL_SUBJECT or subtree heading -> subject
MAIL_FMT -> determines the format of the email (e.g., org, ascii or html)

so your example above would be

** note to person about blah
   :MAIL_TO:  person@blah.com
   :MAIL_SUBJECT: ADD people 7 times more likely to be creative
   Dear Person,

   Blah blah blah.
