And then the lightbulb clicked on in the attic. If WE love birthdays so much, then there must be many of YOU who love birthdays just as much and who love sending and receiving mail
And so the Love and Envelopes Birthday Club was formed.
Here's the deal. If you love birthdays, love getting mail, and want to spread some birthday cheer to other bloggers, then this is totally up your alley!
What to do:
1. Sign up using this form. Give us your contact info, as well as your birthday date and mailing address. You will get a confirmation email within the next few days from firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Each month we will send out emails assigning each participant with a birthday girl. (If you would like to send a card or package to more than one girl, email us and let us know.)
(I'll also post on this blog each month with everyone's birthday for that month. That way you can be sure to wish them happy birthday on twitter, their blog, or even send them a card if you didn't get assigned to them and want to snag their address from us.)
3. Send some snail mail to your birthday girl! We encourage you to send a lovely, thoughtful card with a hand written note. You are also completely free to send a small package with some goodies (a great opportunity to support handmade!). Make your birthday girls feel special, celebrated and loved!
4. When YOUR birthday rolls around, please write up a post about the cards and any goodies you were sent after the celebration dies down! Make sure to link to the bloggers who helped you celebrate! I'll have a linky party on the Birthday Club page here on the blog, so make sure you come over and check that out too.
And don't forget to add the Love and Envelopes Birthday Club button designed by Dana Sears to your blog sidebar and your post!
This is a monthly commitment. You will need to commit to send a heartfelt card or small package to at least one birthday girl per month.
Participants will need to have an active blog.
Sign up will close one week from now (January 24th). At that point, we won't be accepting any more participants (just to keep it simple for us), but we plan to open sign ups back up this summer.
Email us at email@example.com if you any questions or comments.
