I have done this before and it was really fun! I want to restart a fresh post so that people that want to join now can and those that are still wanting to do it can let me know as well.
Q & A:
Ok so WHAT IS a SPARK PEN PAL? It is where we can send each other (only the ones signed up) post cards, cards or just a little note of encouragement in the mail. I loved getting the post cards but they are hard to find sometimes, that is why its not called postcard pen pal anymore.
WHO ALL WOULD GET MY ADDRESS? Well first you would send me a spark mail including your name and address (can use p.o box) then as we get people that join us (ONLY THE PEOPLE IN THE PEN PAL club) would get a list of names and addresses from me that I will email each person in the club. THE WHOLE TEAM WILL NOT GET YOU ADDRESS!
HOW DO YOU JOIN THE SPARK PEN PAL club?
FIRST: Fill out the questionnaire that I will post below to let me and others know that you want to join.
SECOND: Send me via spark mail your name and address. DO NOT POST YOUR ADDRESS IN THIS POST! THEN EVERYONE WILL HAVE IT! Only send it to me and then i will send each one participating a list of the names and addresses of the other pen pals.
WHO WANTS TO JOIN ME AND OTHERS IN THE SPARK PEN PAL club? I Will be in it! Its lots of fun to send and receive inspiration to other team members!
Here is a Spark Pen Pal questionnaire so that you can know a little bit about the ones your sending your cards too.You can add as much info as you want! These questions are just some thoughts to get you started.
Here are my answers:
Address: DO NOT POST HERE! Send them to me via spark mail!
