Testimonials

The outpouring of love that the IGGPPC floats in everyday is nothing short of magical and we are constantly amazed by how much adoration our iggles have for the group and each other! Don’t believe us? Feast your eyes on these testimonials…


I feel that I am getting younger in Spirit. I have to say that I feel that this group has helped with that. Instead of just walking past certain aisles at a store, I go down them looking for fun things to send people. I look at toys with my son different too. It has been lots of fun. I just wanted to say ‘Thank you IGGPPC’! – Christina Williams

What is so amazing about this community is that everyone is so very positive about who they are and what they like – and doesn’t judge anyone else because of who else they are or what else they like. – Anna Span

I feel a lot less “old” thanks to all of you here, and meeting other really awesome geek ladies (and gents!) has helped me feel more comfortable really being me. I don’t fly nearly as under the radar in my interests anymore. ^_^ – Joanna Volavka

Ahhh #iggppc, one email in and I already love my pen pal to death. So excited about this project.” –Ariana Brinckerhoff

One of the things I miss most about our pre-internet days is the art of letter writing. There used to be nothing more exciting to me than coming home to find a letter waiting for me from a close friend. Sure, I still receive the occasional postcard if one of my loved ones happens to be traveling, but receiving a handwritten letter by post is something very rare in this day and age. An email just doesn’t hold the same kind of excitement that a tangible letter does, which is why I was so excited when I found about a new project that @DarlingStewie and @frogmellaink have been working on putting together. It’s called the International Geek Girls Pen Pal Club and it pairs geek girls from around the world with one another to delve back into the world of physical post.” – Kristin of Super Space Chick

I can’t even explain the level of love I have for #IGGPPC. I HAVE FOUND MY TRIBE.” –Katy

Boy oh boy am I every excited about this one folks! This is one of those things that happens every so often in the Land of Internet that perfectly demonstrates why I love social media and it combines two of my favourite things! Snail Mail and Geekery!” – Beauty of Whatever Kind

Finishing up the last errands before I leave for England to visit my bestie and pen pal, @BatHobbit! #IGGPPC brought us together! ^_^” — Nancy Petru

One problem I have as a modern day geek is that I’ve amassed a fantastic collection of stationary and cards, yet I have no one to send them to. The only times I’ve sent mail in the last few years has been for annual holiday cards and wedding-related stationary. So I’m thrilled with what @darlingstewie and @frogmellaink have created: An opportunity for us geeky ladies to use the postal system while making friends in the process! Finally–an excuse to buy even more fun stationary and spoil someone with all kinds of cute little geeky surprises.” – Tara of The Geeky Hostess

Oh #IGGPPC how did you find me such an AWESOME match hey? SO EXCITED!” –Abbi

#IGGPPC Thank you for finding my soulmate/long-lost twin.” –Helena Schofield
