Peaceful Pen Pals Project

Thank you so much for your interest in the Peaceful Pen Pal project! Now more than ever, it is important that we stay connected to one another through love, acceptance, compassion and kindness.

We are so happy to offer this hand-written letter exchange opportunity to your child.

Sign Up
When you sign up for a Peaceful Pen Pal, you will see on the online form that you have 2 choices for what kind of pen pal you would like to receive:
  • If you request a Domestic (US) pen pal, we match your child with someone of the same gender, close to the same age (+/- one year) and from a different US state.
  • If you request an International or Domestic pen pal, we prioritize the International request. However, because the number of requests that come from inside the US is far greater than the number of requests that come from outside the US, we will match your child with whichever is FIRST AVAILABLEInternational or Domestic.
We will follow up via email with the name and address of your new Peaceful Pen Pal friend. The time it takes to find a match for your child will vary based on the age/gender/location of children requesting a pen pal at the time of your request. If a week has passed and you haven’t heard from us, please check your SPAM folder. You may follow up with Meg at  to check the status of your match.
As a participant, please understand:
We are so happy your child will be part of this meaningful project and look forward to making friendship connections between youth all over the world!
