The Blue Castle Badge

What's that silver glint on the lapel of the boy you just passed on the street? What's this blue enamel pin on the blouse of the woman standing next to you in the cafe line? Why, it's none other than the Blue Castle Badge, the official sign of noble and noteworthy individuals!

The Blue Castle Badge is awarded to those who have accomplished one or more of the following achievements:

* They have sent a real, paper letter to Castle in the Air illustrated with some of their own artwork.
* They have sent a real, paper letter to Castle in the Air telling us of a good deed they have performed.
* They have been mentioned favorably here on the Castle in the Air weblog.

Scores of people have already earned their Blue Castle Badge. Maybe you'll be the next!

What a fabulous idea, Karima! I wished I'd thunk of that!

I have to agree with Shelley Noble. What a marvelous idea. You can expect a letter from me next week. I enjoy your blog and I only wish I were closer. I know that Oregon isn't that far but in this time of economic stuggles 40 miles is a long way. You are over a 1000 miles.

My pin just arrived in the mail, and I am happy to wear it. When I was a teenager I used to send my friends fantastic letters filled with glitter and so decorated on the envelope that it is amazing they ever arrived to their intended address. Your challenge inspired me, and it was fun to pull out the paints, and bring back the fun. Thanks so much!
