Become a Pen PalWrite a letter to a senior to brighten their day. You’ll create a meaningful connection that can put a stop to loneliness, and you may even make a friend for life.
Research shows that receiving messages can improve your mood if you’re feeling lonely or sad. This especially goes for seniors, all of whom grew up in a time when handwritten notes and cards were one of the greatest ways to show you care.
This week’s mission is to put a smile on the face of a senior by becoming a Pen Pal. We will connect you with a senior to spread joy and help prevent senior social isolation and loneliness.
How It Works:
- Write A Letter – Submit your letter to Ready to Care. You can add photos or a video message to help put a face to your kind words.
- We Handle Delivery – Skip the stamps! After you submit, we’ll deliver your letter to our review team. Each letter is screened for safety and security before sending to our seniors.
- Stay Connected – You can request a return letter from the senior too.
