International Postcard Exchange

Several people have asked about the International Postcard Exchange so I wanted to share the information here in case your troop is interested in participating this year. International Thinking Day Postcard Exchange 2011 PatchEach year we’ve had a few Sunnytrails troops participate and they always report that it’s lots of fun and really interesting for their girl scouts. Maybe someone will make a display board with postcards they’ve received to display at our International Thinking Day Faire this year!

Please join us as we come together to celebrate the birthdays of both Lord Baden-Powell and Lady Baden-Powell, February 22nd. Scouts and Guides all over the world celebrate this day in international friendship and world peace. This project was designed to help  Scouts and Guides around the world learn about their brothers and sisters in scouting. In this project you will exchange postcards with other troops and units to learn more about them and what they do.

 

The Exchange runs from October to February! To get your troop on the list of participants please SIGN UP NOW! At www.mythinkingday.com

We use the Yahoo Groups portal to host the emails of all members.  Once you join us we will send you the information you need to get started on the exchange.  All the Rules, How Tos and Frequently Asked Questions are available here for you here on the website.

You make exchange agreements with other leaders until you have reached your limit.  Once you have reached your limit please contact your State or Country’s Moderator listed on the Contact Page and we will take your email address off of the website so you won’t be contacted anymore.

We also offer patches for this event.  Don’t wait until the last minute to order patches!

Yours In Scouting,
