I’m quite excited about this month’s Bring Back Paper activity, as it’s something I haven’t run for a while, but I remember it being very popular the last time that I did it.
As regular readers will know, I am all about snail mail. I love penning handwritten letters and I think there’s something quite special about receiving a little happy mail. And then there’s the fact that it’s a great excuse to accumulate lots of pretty stationery!
Whilst so many of us love to get happy mail, some pretty snail mail in amongst junk mail and bills, I realise that not everyone wants the commitment of ongoing correspondence and pen pals. Which is why this month I am running a one-off happy mail sign up, where all you need to do is send one letter/postcard/note/package – whatever you fancy! This is not an ongoing pen pal exchange, just a one off surprise mailing.
You can send whatever 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. If it’s a treat, you might want to send a snack, a magazine, a preloved book, 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. This sign up will close 28th March 2018, and I’ll pair people up throughout the month.
