I’m Ready to Log It!

Our seniors love receiving letters from their pen pals. Letters from pen pals are proven to boosted happiness, support brain development, promote connection, and increase feelings of acceptance. There are still so many more members of our community waiting to hear from you! This week, we’re challenging you to write as many letters as you can to seniors.

Starting today, we challenge you to write at least 10 letters to seniors in the next 5 days. Are you up for it?

Become a Pen Pal

Let us know in the comments on how many letters you’ve written, and we’ll give you a shout out on our Ready to Care Facebook Page!

  17. I have written my 2 pen pal letters today, and am confident that I can meet the challenge for this week😀 I love sending cards and letters. I had a pen pal from 5th grade through high school graduation. I lived in Illinois and she In California. I have missed that connection, and am glad you have a pen pal program.

  29. I didn’t see the mission to write 10 letters in 5 days. Is that finished, because I would like to still do that?. And if not what other missions do you have?.
