The Letterbox Project

The letterbox project is our flagship program. It is a national pen pal program fostering connection and community, with handwritten letters being sent across Australia to people feeling isolated and disconnected.

Our Letterbox Project is the only national program with management and safety embedded. We do not share any identifiable information, and all letters are vetted by our team. Every single letter for the duration of the pen pal communication is sent through our team and approved, allowing relationships and connection to thrive while ensuring everyone in our community is safe. 

In the digital age, a handwritten letter is a beautiful reminder of the power of real connection. Something seemingly simple can have a profound and lasting impact - for both the recipient and the writer. Every letter makes a difference.
