Very cool! Thank you!!


I would like to respectfully ask that you don't "assume you are in the US". People from all over the world read your site, and it is a tad disheartening to feel that we are ignored. I'm not suggesting that you list the postal rates of everywhere, but just be aware that not everyone reading your post is in the US. Thank you.

Hi Eunice,
I understand your comment. I copied and pasted that instruction from the Elsewhere Philatelic Society and didnt catch that. Since they are a location-based organization from San Francisco; their assumption is pretty on point.

If this were a Letter Writers Alliance project, itd be different. Were very happy to have so many international folks participating!

Hi Eunice,
As a Bay Area-based organization that hosts mainly in-person adventures, we are very Bay Area-US-centric. We opened this experience up to non-members because we thought it was a delightful opportunity to receive mail from a very far away place. We are sorry you did not find this opportunity delightful and instead felt disheartened and ignored.

I know where every one of our members lives and nearly all of them are in the US, which is why the information was phrased that way. You should definitely not place any of your feelings of being slighted on the LWA. Please place them all on the Elsewhere Philatelic Society.

Ethel Allen
Secretary, Elsewhere Philatelic Society.

Is it still possible to do this - I was going to try anyway. My wee boy would LOVE this and a great way to get him even more interested in our beautiful world.

Donovan Beeson

I think the window for that is closed.
