I'm copying my own Facebook post here because I wanted to encourage blog readers to participate in the project I created--American Pen Pals. I just sent out the first pen pal matches this evening and it was so cool. I hope you'll join in!
Feel free to share the website/project via your own social media feeds or blog. Since writing the below FB post I created a quick blog/website you can share. Because buying domains is always fun! Check out: americanpenpals.com
So all this post-election talk of everyone living in their regional bubbles made me want to DO something to try to bridge the divide I'd love if we could all have dinner together but decided pen pals might be more realistic. I have no clue if this will work (and am a bit nervous to hit publish) but let's try it!
Sign up at the form linked below and I'll match you with a random pen pal from somewhere else in America. Then all you have to do is send your pen pal a letter in the mail.
I'm imagining a letter in the style of my 90ish year old midwestern Aunt Joan who always writes a card telling about the weather and recent local events and the latest with the family. That kind of letter. Your pen pal will send you a letter too and you'll get to know one another a little bit. That's it.
