What is Lovely Letters?
Originally founded by Esther JuLee, Lovely Letters is a Snail Mail and Gift Exchange program focused on building new friendships by sending lovely letters and packages all across the globe, one new friend at a time. This is a program that promotes encouragement, collaboration, friendship, and growth as individuals and as a blogging community. The program’s goal is to help you make new friends you would have never connected with otherwise and to connect bloggers from different countries, backgrounds, and cultures so as to learn from one another.
In short, we are a community who loves connecting through the love of sending and receiving snail mail. We believe that letter writing is a dying but wonderful skill to possess and should be practiced often. I hope this serves as an introduction for possibly making a life long snail mail pal!
How does it work?
▷ Sign-up: Sign-up anytime between the 1st thru the 10th of the month on the sign-up post ― sign-ups close at midnight PST. Should you miss the sign-up deadline, send me an email so that I can add you to the waiting list.
▷ Pen Pal Pairings: On the 11th of the month, you will receive an email letting you know who you have been paired with. Thereafter, you will spend the following 3 months getting to know your partner through blog stalking, social media, Skype, or however you’d like!
▷ Connect with Your Partner: After obtaining your pen pal’s contact information, you will have 3 days to connect with your partner. If your partner does not contact you or respond within 3 days of being paired please email me so I can attempt to pair you with someone on the waiting list. Bear in mind that communication is key and is essential in establishing a fun-filled pen pal relationship!
▷ Monthly Theme: There will be a designated monthly theme, as well as a color theme, that will complement your Lovely Letter parcel. For example, if the theme for February is Valentine’s Day, you will want to ensure your Lovely Letter parcel includes Valentine’s Day goodies.
▷ Mail Your Lovely Letter Parcel: Your Lovely Letter parcel must be mailed via certified mail no later than the 15th of the month. Please note that because we want this program to be affordable and enjoyable for all participants there is a $10 limit. Here is one of my favorite Pinterest boards to help give you some simple, yet meaningful ideas to encourage your pen pal and to make them feel extra special:
