I was feeling lonely back in my hometown after staying abroad for some time. Thankfully, I stumbled upon PenPal by accident. Since then, I can't stop recommending it. With PenPal, I can connect to the whole world and visit amazing places by writing to people around the globe. I've made friends thousands of miles away and was actually able to learn some Spanish while doing that! I'm truly greatful to be part of the PenPal community.
In this world of instant messaging, writing postcards gives me a way to relax and switch off. I've been an active postcrossing member, but with PenPal I love to put a personal picture on my postcard and tell the story behind it. I feel that way more thought and creativity flow into the postcard compared to sending a message on my phone. Thank you, PenPal, for giving me the opportunity to meet wonderful people and share my joy of writing and snail mail. Here's to many more letters!
PenPal has made my life a little more exciting and the postcards give me something to look forward to. It always puts a smile on my face when I open the mailbox and see another card. It didn't took long until I was talking to a few people around the world. I've made a truly great friend in Spain. He's halfway across the world and I feel closer to him than most people. We talk about our many interests and share experiences of our day to day lives. I hope everyone can find someone they feel this close to.
PenPal Match ensures that you receive a card from someone else for every card you send. The goal is to bridge the gap between cultures and connect people all over to world - by postcard!
What is my PenPal Match limit?
To start with you get up to 10 random draws per day. This limit allows our system to remain secure whilst still engaging new PenPal members.
Once you reach your account limit, you won’t be able to send any more postcards until one of your postcards is registered. If a postcard is not registered within 14 days, it will automatically expire and the slot will free up for another PenPal Match!
