Three years ago, word on the Internet started to spread about a little group called the International Geek Girl Pen Pals Club, where you could sign up to be matched with a new friend who shared similar nerdy interests. And I jumped on the opportunity.
Not only was I matched with a pen pal, but I watched as an entire community of amazing women began to form around the hashtag #IGGPPC on Twitter. SO many of these women have since become my friends, and I can honestly say that my life would be completely different if the IGGPPC had never been formed.
So, when the club’s fearless leaders put out a call for anyone who wanted to contribute to giveaway shenanigans to celebrate the club’s third birthday, I knew I wanted to give back to the community in some small way.
