2017 PenPal Sign-Ups ~ Ends 12/19/16

Would you like a pen-pal for 2017?
Are you willing to write and send a letter once or twice a month?
Would you like to make a new friend, maybe even for life?
Would you like to get something other than bills in the mail?
If so, I hope you'll join in!
To join, please email me the following information to .  I promise, the only person I'll share your information with will be your new pen-pal.
~Blog address (You don't have to have a blog)
~Mailing address
~Would you like an international pen-pal?
Sign-ups will end on December 19th so that I can match you up and get your pen-pal's information to you before the New Year starts.
Please only sign-up if you are willing to participate.  I would hate for someone to be paired with a pen-pal who isn't going to keep up their end of the deal.
I can't wait to get started!

Edited to add:

So far we have 65 participants from the US, Canada, England, Scotland, Australia, New Zealand and soon-to-be Thailand!!

    1. I'm excited too! I received your info :)

  3. I had several pen pals when I was growing up. I do love to get snail mail. Real writing is a lost art.

  4. This is awesome! I've tried in the past, and sent letters to people, but nobody I sent things to ever replied back. I'm excited about this! Thanks! Kaylin

    1. I'm excited, too! So glad you're joining in :)

  5. Sounds exciting, I haven't written to a penpal since I was a teen and into my 20s. As someone said above, letter writing is such a lost art.

  6. this sounds like so much fun! i write letters to two very close but far away friends as we get so tired of Fb and texting. YES sign me up! i will email you my info!!

  9. I had pen pals when I was growing up and it was a great way to connect with people. Thank you so much for sharing this post with us at Hearth and Soul, Colletta. I'll be featuring it at this week's party as we are all about community at Hearth and Soul and I hope it will help to get a few more folks involved!

  15. Can't get the email to work. I would like a penpal. My blog is: I live near the coast in Georgia in the USA.. I like to travel, read and craft. A penpal anywhere in the world would be fine.

  17. This is a really lovely idea, I would like to join in, but because my life is so up and down right now I would hate to have to drop out and disappoint someone so I am not signing up.
