My youngest daughter is doing a Flat Stanley project. In case you’re not familiar with the concept, school children create a “flat” version of themselves and send them to friends and family around the world to learn about the different places, people, foods, and cultures that make this world such an interesting place. With a bit of help from Mom, Real Sofia has built a blog and a Facebook page and is using them to chronicle Flat Sofia’s adventures. Real Sofia hopes to send Flat Sofia to all 50 States and as many countries as possible.
Here’s where I hope you can help…
Would you be interested in “hosting” Flat Sofia for a bit, taking her around town, and helping a seven-year-old landlocked American girl learn more about where you live and all that makes it wonderful? I already know you love taking photographs. Come on, it will be so fun!
In the nearly two years since I launched this blog, I’ve met some amazing people. Folks from more than 100 countries have stopped by to view a photo and leave a comment. I’ve tried to follow and engage with as many of you as possible, and I love how our mutual interest in photography has made the world a smaller, more tolerant place, even if only for a moment.
When I started this blog as a New Year’s Resolution back in 2012, I couldn’t imagine I’d now be writing my 1,000th post. But now that it’s here, I can’t imagine a better topic for such a milestone than this.
P.S. If you want to host Flat Sofia, please email Real Sofia at firstname.lastname@example.org.
