So I have this idea and want to know how everyone feels about it. I was going through my stuff the other day and realize just how much ridiculous stationary I have. Not to mention that I just bought a sheet of Disney stamps. And it got me to thinking that when it really comes down to it I never get a chance to use it. And MW people are really the best people around. That being said who does not like getting mail?!? I know that I do for sure! So how would you guys feel about some sort of little pen pal program for MW? I would have no problem putting it together at least initially if a lot of people, or frankly even just a few, in this post like it. Basically just get a whole bunch of people that want to do it, mix all the names up and just draw names 2 at a time and assign those people to each other. I don't know I just thought it would be a lot of fun. You get to use some snail mail the old fasioned way and maybe get to know someone new in the process. Let me know what you think! And if people love it maybe we would all have a reason to get rid of that stationary lol

About a year and half ago there was a group of us that did pen pals. It was a lot of fun, but got tiring (for me) because I had soo many I couldn't keep track! lol But I wouldn't mind doing it again. - Armenda  1159.7 #152 10:18AM
Ha fair enough. I figured we could start wiyh just one. Maybe 2 if ppl wanted and go from there. It was really just an idea I had been mulling around. - Poisen_Ivy  315.2 #824 10:23AM
I don't mind having about 5..but I literally had maybe 20 before. It was soo crazy! I didn't want to leave anyone out. lol Some people enjoyed doing email pen pals too if they wanted to participate but don't want to give out their physical address. - Armenda  1159.7 #152 10:26AM
Ha fair enough. I won't assign you twenty promise lol. And good call on the e-mail thing. Once i get more responses, if we do this, when I make the official post I'll have ppl put down what type they want and how many they are up for. Do u think there is any reason to have a minimum rank? - Poisen_Ivy  315.2 #824 10:44AM
I don't think there should be a minimum rank. At Christmas time when the Secret Santa gift exchanged happen there was drama over excluding people. Just keep it open for anyone to wants to participate. If they can't keep their end of the deal, don't put their name on the list. - Armenda  1159.7 #152 10:56AM
Fair enough. I don't know where i was that I never saw the secret santa post lol. But if there were no issues there I see no reason it shouldn't be the same here - Poisen_Ivy  315.2 #824 11:13AM
I had thought for awhile about doing this with some of the minis. I know my oldest LOVES getting mail. Plus the teacher in me doesn't mind her getting extra writing practice.😁 - RCmom  5235.3 #22 11:13AM
That is such a great idea RCmom I didn't think about that. Well we may just have to incorporate an extension for the minis! - Poisen_Ivy  315.2 #824 11:19AM
Ahh brillaint! My kiddo needs some writing practice and would love recieving her own little piece of mail.. - DisneyMe2Death  875.0 #212 11:21AM
So does my 9 year Old. - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  1143.5 #155 11:32AM
I love snail mail🐌 ! I'm in 😜 I got some disney stamps that are itching to be used. - DisneyMe2Death  875.0 #212 10:20AM
If we did would it be ok to type on the computer,my handwritting can be as bad as a doctors = - pikarich  5232.4 #23 10:29AM
Haha I don't see why not. I'm sure the other person would appreciate the consideration. You can lip smooch it like i do mine to make it more personal :P - Poisen_Ivy  315.2 #824 10:41AM

I want to do this again! We did do this last year but I promise I'll be better at it this year! :) - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #233 11:52AM
Alrighty. Since this seems to be a popular idea so far, I'm going to create a new post and get this going. I don't want everyone and their mom to post here then have to post again in the new one. Stand by :D - Poisen_Ivy  315.2 #824 12:03PM
Thanks for doing this-I'd love to be part of it! - leopardditz2000  872.7 #213 12:14PM
