It’s been some time since I have run this particular Bring Back Paper activity, and if I remember rightly it was very popular the last time that I did it, so let’s go for it again.
As regular readers will know, I adore sending and receiving snail mail and have quite a few pen pals that I write to regularly. However, I appreciate that not everyone wants to commit to long term pen pals, which is where the one-off happy mail sign up comes in. This one is for you if you’d like a taste of pretty snail mail without being in it for the long haul!
With this activity, all that you need to do is send one letter/postcard/note/package – whatever you fancy really. This is not an ongoing pen pal exchange and sign up, it is just a one off surprise mailing to a like-minded swapper.
You can send whatever happy mail that you like to your recipient. It really can be something as simple as a postcard to brighten someone’s day, a chatty note, or a fun treat sent through the post. For treat ideas, you might want to send a magazine, a preloved book or stationery, absolutely anything goes for this one. I’ll leave that decision totally up to you, it’s all part of the fun, isn’t it?
To get involved, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and address details and whether you’d like to post within your own country or internationally and I’ll do the best I can to keep within that for you.
Please note: I am halting sign ups to this one on 15th March as I am aware that international events are meaning that it is not so easy for some people to get out and about at the moment. I am working on something else to bring some happiness, so watch this space and rest assured that I will run this one again at a later date.
Have fun with this one, it’s always a lovely one to run.
