Welcome to Mother Mail!
Parenting, especially for new parents, can be very isolating. Sometimes that isolation lingers. 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.
We’ve decided to bring that back as a permanent fixture in 2019! Just to make it perfectly clear, you don’t have to be a new mother to participate. Everyone can use a kind note in the mail. Every stage is a tough one.
How does it work?
To participate, you have to fill out the form below and send either $6 or $12 via PayPal. Every month, you will send out a postcard(s) to the address(es) you receive. To keep the essence of RMWOES, send a stranger some comforting or encouraging words and let them know how you’re doing. When you receive your postcards, share it with us on Instagram with the hashtags #raisingmothers #RMmothermail
It only costs $1 a month (U.S.) or €1 (Europe. Please use this link to pay). You can purchase it in 6 or 12 month blocks. Mother Mail helps keep Raising Mothers running—so, make a friend through the mail AND support the website and writers all at once.
We start in March and just keep going as people join.
