A GLOBAL PEACE ACTIVITY 22 FEBRUARY POSTCARD EXCHANGE

23rd Jul 2013

This is a very efficient Action to   celebrate the birthdays of both Lord Baden-Powell and Lady Baden-Powell, February 22nd. Scouts and Guides all over the world celebrate this day in international friendship and world peace. This project was designed to help  Scouts and Guides around the world learn about their brothers and sisters in scouting. In this project you will exchange postcards with other troops and units to learn more about them and what they do.  Now it is also a very good tool for Messengers f Peace too
 
For over 13 years, this exchange has been helping leaders & troops/packs/units from around the world to exchange postcards with each other prior to Thinking Day. Each year we strive to make it the biggest and best exchange ever! 
 
The Exchange runs from October to February!
 
We use the Yahoo Groups portal to host the emails of all members.  Once you join us we will send you the information you need to get started on the exchange.  All the Rules, How Tos and Frequently Asked Questions are available here for you here on the website. 
 
You make exchange agreements with other leaders until you have reached your limit.  Once you have reached your limit please contact your State or Country's Moderator listed on the Contact Page and we will take your email address off of the website so you won't be contacted anymore.
