Subject: Pen pals for your troop
I'm writing to you because of the scouting involvement you listed on the
Where" website. I'm hoping some of your troop might be interested in
postal mail penpals in the former Soviet Union.
Our organization, SAPE (formerly called "The Soviet-American Penfriend
Exchange") matches people -- aged 8 to 80 -- from all over the world with
postal mail penpals in the former Soviet Union and Baltic nations. We
launched our first website, which features letters from teachers whose
students have participated, as well as stories by participants who've met
their SAPE penpals in person, as well as a more detailed description of
goals and history. If you'd like to check it out, the web address is:
If you're in touch with other troops who would be interested in
participating, please tell them to get in touch with us. Anyone who
online can receive a print version of the webpages by writing to us (our
postal address is below). If your regional Scouting Council publishes a
print newsletter, they are welcome to reproduce any of the contents of
website. If you have a homepage, feel free to add a link to our URL!
Thank you for your time and for the work that you do to help young
I'd love to hear back from you with any comments or ideas you may have.
