Do you remember your first pen pal in elementary school? I don’t, but I remember how thrilled I was to receive a letter back. I wish I would’ve kept those letters, maybe I could’ve found my old pen pal on Twitter by now.
What’s a Pen Pal? If you didn’t have one in elementary school you can start now. The dictionary definition of a pen pal is – a person with whom one becomes friendly by exchanging letters, especially in a foreign country whom one has never met.
I had this idea to start a list of pen pals for 2018. If you would like to join the list please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Subject: Pen Pal and in the message include your Name & Address. Give me 1-2 weeks to pair you up with a pen pal. I will send emails with your pen pals information so you can begin writing!
Ideas to send your pen pal. Most of these are best to send once you’re acquainted
- Business Cards
- Photos (home, city, country, etc)
- Life stories
- Share different music
- Tea bags/herbs
- Get creative!
I will send over topics/questions you can ask to get to know each other once you join.
