What is the ‘Send a letter project’?

The title of this project pretty much speaks for itself! The basis of the project is writing to and/or receiving post from other member(s) of the project – with the intention of finding ‘pen-pals’ to communicate with and get to know the‘old-fashioned way’ (by sending letters, cards, notes etc by post).

The idea of moving away from social media and taking the time to communicate ‘by hand’ is not only far more meaningful, but it also gives you the option to showcase your hobbies and interests (be it card making, crafts, drawing and/or colouring, creative writing etc.), and know that they will be received and appreciated by someone else involved in the project (and so with similar interests).

Putting down your phone/tablet/laptop is also beneficial to your health, and used as a form of mindfulness/relaxation by many.

How does it work?

If you are interested in the project and would like to participate, you’ll need to ‘sign up’ by clicking here, and providing the relevant details:

  • Gender
  • Age
  • Hobbies
  • Any other information given

What next?

In order to adhere to confidentiality, I will ask that you send the post for your pen pal – when ready – to me (address on ‘contact’ page). I will then forward it on to your penpal on your behalf.
