#mothermail registration form

Mother Mail is both a virtual gathering to encourage letter writing and a pen pal swap to connect with mothers new and seasoned all over the world. It was founded in 2016 and is hosted by Sherisa de Groot.

Many of us have turned to the internet to connect with new communities that become family. Sometimes, it’s nice to take that community offline and have mementos that you can keep. Back in 2016, Raising Mothers ran a one-off postcard swap called RMWOES (Raising Mothers Words Of Encouragement Swap). It was wildly successful. Some mamas still send each other letters all these years later.

It is now a real club with annual membership of $20.

PLEASE NOTE: You don’t have to be a new mom to participate. Everyone can use a kind note in the mail.

How does it work?

1. Join the swap by paying the fee

To be able to take the time to arrange the swap, I need to charge a fee. Your payment goes through PayPal.

2. Fill in the registration form

This step is super important. After paying via PayPal you must also fill out the sign-up form at the bottom of this page.

3. Buy stationary or make postcards

If you’d like to buy special stationary, that’s up to you. If you’d prefer to just send a card or postcard, that’s also fine. Have your stamps ready!

4. Send your letters or cards out on time!

You will receive your email with your address(es) during the FIRST WEEK OF EACH MONTH. From there, aim to send out a new letter or postcard before the 15th of each month. To keep the essence of RMWOES, send a stranger some comforting or encouraging words and let them know how you’re doing. You are more than welcome to continue correspondence with a previous mama, just keep their address handy.
