Help Us Connect More Pen Pals

Since launching our pen pal program last year, we’ve connected thousands of volunteers with lonely seniors across North America. But to keep the letter-writing momentum going, we need your help.

Socially isolated and lonely seniors need us more than ever. That’s why we’re leaning even harder on our pen pal program – encouraging the next wave of letter writing volunteers to make a difference with kind words. While we know we can’t reach every person in need today — with your help — we hope to continue making a difference in the lives of seniors.

Why become a pen pal?

A simple letter filled with kindness can instantly brighten someone’s day and give them a sense of purpose. Studies from the National Institute on Aging have even shown that seniors who connect with others through social activities have fewer health issues, such as depression, and have better cognitive function. And aside from their benefit, writing a thoughtful letter will undoubtedly make you, the writer, feel great!
