There seems to be some interest in letter writing, based on the responses to this AskMe: Need a surrogate older sister

I did a quick search of the MeFi Wiki and didn't see anything related to collecting and distributing (volunteered) IRL information. I can't imagine that the idea of MFPenPals hasn't previously been entertained; has this been tried before? Are there MF rules against?
IANAWD (web developer) but I mocked up a Google Form that interested parties can use to add their addresses to. I'd hate to lose the momentum of this AskMe request, but am not sure A) Whether my solution is any good, B) Whether this project is verboten, C) Whether someone else already has a better idea or plan.
Thanks for any suggestions or enlightenment.
