1. If you have not done so already, please sign up HERE

2. Create your peace cranes, doves, hearts, and any other items you wish to share with your exchange partner. Check out the Downloads section on this website for helpful guides and instructional videos. Hearts and doves are easier to fold, and just as much fun to trade! You can see a How to Fold a Heart Video here. And here’s How to Fold a Peace Dove. You can also download these coloring pages. All of these send a message of peace and are equally fine to share with your exchange partners! You are only limited by your imagination.

3. Please consider also exchanging pen-pal letters, videos, or arranging Skype sessions with your exchange partners. This will make for a deeper and more educational experience for your students.

4. Select another group on the list. Email the group leader and request an exchange. Also, confirm if they are willing to exchange pen-pal letters or other ideas, so everyone knows what to expect in return. You may want to choose more than one to contact since sometimes exchanges don’t work out. Better to have a few exchanges lined up, so if one fails your group will still have a successful exchange.

5. Once you receive confirmation that the group you have selected is interested in exchanging, exchange addresses or agree to trade via e-mail.  Send your package of artworks and letters to your exchange partner and wait for their exchange package to arrive! If you choose to exchange your cranes via regular post, you will be responsible for paying your own postage. You may trade via e-mail, which will allow you to participate for free.

6. Send photos to me to receive your certificate of participation. After reading the suggestions here on how to participate, if you need a little help, don’t hesitate to send me e-mail. Is someone not responding to your exchange request? Please let me know about that, as well. I want to keep this list as accurate and active as possible. I have never had a complaint about an inappropriate exchange, but please be aware, I do not screen participants. You are responsible for assuring materials arriving via post are appropriate to share with your participants. If you have a bad experience with someone on the list, please send me e-mail and describe what happened. Thanks.
