Writing to the World

 

Letter from Toby

A seven year old named Toby from Sheffield, England, has set himself an amazing challenge – to write to the world.

His first goal was to send a hand-written letter to somebody in every country in the world, to ask questions about life and culture, and help people understand each other better.

Toby began the project when he was five and wrote to every country before his sixth birthday!

Since then he has begun tackling the US States, Canadian Provinces and Australian Territories.

I couldn't wait to tell Toby more about Uluru!

I couldn’t wait to tell Toby more about Uluru!

I received a letter from Toby and couldn’t wait to tell him more about the park and Anangu culture. I told him about the many flowers that grow here, the bush foods and tools, the languages spoken (Pitjantjara and Yankunytjatjara) and our mala (rufous hare wallaby) enclosure. I sent him all the information on the backs of photographs and we now have pride of place on Toby’s project website, alongside heaps of other letters, photographs and drawings from all over the world.

You can read all Toby’s letters and responses on his website www.writingtotheworld.com and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/writingtotheworld. It’s a fascinating glimpse into places and cultures around the world.
