Have you ever heard of Flat Stanley? My cousin Sophie told me about him. Stanley started out as a character in a children's book (he got flat when a blackboard fell on him) but is now a world-famous international traveler because of The Flat Stanley Project.
A third grade teacher in Canada started The Flat Stanley Project to get kids interested in letter-writing. It kinda works like this: A Flat Stanley cutout visits a school. The kids treat Flat Stanley like a guest. They take him places, do cool things with him and maybe even give him tasty snacks. Then the kids write about Flat Stanley's visit, take some pictures and mail him off to his next adventure.
Flat Stanley has visited 47 countries and has been photographed with presidents and famous people. Hmmmm....
Genius idea: how about a Flat Puglet?
Flat Puglet could visit foreign lands like Canada. Or New Jersey. He could go to Chicagoland and share Popeyes with Stubby. Or maybe Portland, where Jenny the pug lives. Flat Puglet could also be photographed with famous people. He could become famous and use that fame to save pugs!
Besides, a lot of you live really far away - this could be the only way I'll ever get to visit you. So if you think this sounds as cool as I do...
Email your name & mailing address to: dailypuglet(at)gmail.com
We'll mail a Flat Puglet to the first address we get. Everyone else will be added to a list of hosts. My human will send each host the address of the next host on the list.
A Flat Puglet host promises to:
- take a picture of Flat Puglet in a foreign land (uh, your town)
- tell us something Flat Puglet's visit
- mail Flat Puglet on to the next host
My human will post the pictures & stories for all to enjoy. Kinda cool, huh?
