Here is the act of kindness: my friend Joey is incarcerated at the moment. His birthday is May the 4th and he will be locked up for it. To me that would be the worst place to have a birthday. So I thought it would be nice if we all gave a little joy to him and send him birthday cards. Cards can be hand made (see restrictions) or store bought. They could also be a letter or a post card. Again hand made or store bought.
Rules for hand made:
Use 1ply stiff paper. Use black pen but no large black areas. No markers paints of any kind or crayons. No layers or glue. No stickers. Colored pencils are questionable they are allowed but can be mistaken for crayons which are not allowed. No mixed media or textures.
If you send store bought pick bright colors or happy places or up beat positive cards.
Do not send any extras. Keep it pg. Anything that is not pg may be returned as not admissible content.
To your swap not partner send a post card. Hand made or store bought OK. Senders choice.
Joey will not have the stamps to send thank yous out to all of you who play in this swap but we do talk often so he will tell me when he gets your submission and I will let you know that he got it so that your partner can rate. Please wait to rate till you get both the confirmation from me that Joey got his and until you get what your partner sends you to rate.
I will also make a special thank you card for Joey's favorite. So please do a good job as he will be picking the winner of that thank you note.
His card will be sent to: Joseph Rex Burns 228935 Central Utah Correctional Facilities P.O. Box 550 Gunnison, UT 84634 U.S.A. Housing Facilities - Hickory 512 Top
It would be nice for him to get cards, notes, postcards, from around the world. I tell him about my international swaps and he thinks its so cool to get mail from around the world. So this will be international. And also newbie friendly.
His birthday falls on starwars day so if you can find a way to tie that in I know he would think thats cool.
Its totally optional but if you want to send him little notes on a regular basis that would be very cool. And if any of you are feeling extra generous and want to give him some birthday comersary money you can do so. Just send me a private message if you want to do this and I will get you the online info for doing that.
Thank you all in advance for this act of kindness it truelly means way more than you could ever know!
Just a reminder for this you are sending something to both Joey and your swap partner. Brightest blessings and have fun!
