Anyone interested in starting a penpal group?

Hello all,

I teach a functional reading/writing class for a group of 10 high school students in our MC program (primarily students with autism, down syndrome, other developmental disabilities). As part of this class I am looking to begin penpal writing with this class. At first I thought it would be interesting to do it with one of the upper level English Classes, but then thought why not try to think outside of the box a bit and go outside of the state. If anyone is interested please let me know!
