Do you love snail-mail and beautiful things? Are you looking to make friends with people across the country?
Of course, you do! Who doesn't? That's why I created Mystic Penpals: a fun, interactive monthly connection tool for the mystics, the lovers, the creators.
What is Mystic Penpals?
A monthly penpal sign-up where each participant sends and receives a package in the mail.
What kind of package?
That's the fun part--it's a bit of a surprise!
All packages should contain a handwritten letter or card and shouldn't exceed $20 worth of gifts.
Other ideas: local flare, fun snacks, trinkets, pictures, paintings, books, crystals, candles: any and everything your beautiful heart can imagine.
You will receive the email address and social media information regarding your penpal giving you an opportunity to learn a little more about their interests/hobbies before curating a package for them.
How does it work?
Participants will fill out a form that will be available until the 15th of each month.
On the 20th day of the month, an email will go out to participants containing contact info for their penpal.
You will then have until the 11th of the following month to send out your package. Please email a tracking number to your penpal.
On the 26th of the month, you are encouraged to share the contents of your packages on your social media accounts, personal blogs, etc with the hashtag #MysticPenpals
*This language does get confusing.
For example, this is the Upcoming February 2020 Mystic Penpals Calendar:
The sign-up form will close on January 15, 2020 at midnight CST.
Penpal matches will be emailed to participants on January 20, 2020.
Packages with tracking numbers should be sent by February 11, 2020.
On February 26, 2020, participants are encouraged to share the contents of their packages with the hashtag #MysticPenpals.
And then, sign-ups for March will begin and so on and so forth.
Are there any restrictions?
Currently, Mystic Penpals is only available. to US Residents and those 18 years of age and older.
