Secret Angels (Secret Pen Pals) 


This fall, have fun and stay connected with each other by being a Secret Angel. 


RULES OF THE GAME

  1. Who can play? Adults and children who are AU current, aged out, or legacy families, and volunteers and donors. 
  2. The Secret Angel sends a card in the mail in October, November, and December to a Secret Pen Pal. The Secret Pen Pal will also be a Secret Angel to someone else. 
  3. As an example - Send a Halloween Card to the Secret Pen Pal and in it describe what you like about October or the fall. In November send a Thanksgiving card and express what you are thankful for. In December send a Christmas card and share a family tradition or recipe. 
  4. The Secret Angel will use AU mailing address of 3825 Urban St. Wheat Ridge, CO 80033 as the return address to aid with anonymity. Feel free to leave clues to your identity in the cards. 
  5. In January, you can reveal yourself as the Secret Angel or continue to secretly send mail to your pen pal.
