Strewing by Mail

To each family donating $25 or more, I will send something interesting, and a letter about what it is or where I got it. Some things might be something wrapped or enclosed in an interesting something-else.

I probably won't send anything out before the middle of the month, so that I can match items to families.

Maybe look through this list and leave me a note at PayPal, or by e-mail or by mail if you use snail mail. It's not a questionnaire, it's a swirl of ideas, and I hope a couple might jump out at you. Just a few clues might help me know what to send. I can't guarantee a great match, but it would be fun to try.

Or... you could say you don't want to answer any questions, but just take a random surprise package.

Either way, leave a note at Paypal or e-mail me at [email protected] .
