Pen Pal Sign Ups

Wow! I’m so excited that so many of you want to sign your kid’s up for the Pen Pal Program! We have over 25 kids signed up so far and I’m planning on creating a flyer and sending it to different churches soon too.

What I need from all of you who signed up (or wish to sign up) is:

1. Your child’s name and their patron or favorite saint
2. Birthdate (be sure to include the year)
3. Interests or hobbies (be specific)
4. Your email address or a way to contact you
5. Address
6. Parish Name

Please get this information to me by this Saturday, February 21. I’m planning to partner them up and e-mail you their partners on Monday!

Please spread the word to help this program grow! I’m hoping to keep this an ongoing project where kids can sign up at any time! Thanks everyone for your help!

BTW, I now have an Adventures of an Orthodox Mom button! Grab one for your blog!

  10. Ooh! I want to do this but I’m afraid I’m going to forget to talk to my kids about it (major prego brain). I know the girls will want to do it – my 13 yo has Down Syndrome – any chance you can find her a penpal too? She can write and read and loves being Orthodox!
