Details of swap: I got the idea for this from the book The Perks of Being a Wallflower
by Stephen Chbosky and the post secret swaps. So here's the gist: you write an anonymous letter and send it off, and someone different will send you one. sounds pretty fun, right? right. the rules: start every letter with "Dear Friend" and end with "Love always, Charlie" write whatever you want in between, but do try to make it at least about a page long. you can type it or handwrite. by all means, feel free to write for multiple dates, but send everything for the month together. this is a 12 MONTH swap, with one letter sent per month. i know that sounds like a lot, but really, you're just writing one letter a month, so it's not much work.
