We now have over 15,000 writers
On average, more than 500 letters are being sent each week to schools, nursing homes, disability services and people in the community in Australia.
Pen pals can develop long lasting relationships, always with monitoring and management.
Since launching in early 2020, the Letterbox Project has grown into a national service connecting tens of thousands of people.
We’re continually humbled and amazed by the support we’ve received from our pen pals who all value the power of connection. A handwritten letter takes time, thought and care - a beautiful gift that helps someone feel visible, valued and connected.
We are thrilled to announce Tetley Tea as our major partner for 2021.
Tetley Tea has been bringing warm and comforting tea blends to the world since 1837 when the Tetley Brothers began trading tea in the United Kingdom. Now the second largest manufacturer of tea in the world, with tea enjoyed in around 40 countries. Tetley strives towards creating not only the perfect brew, but also a sustainable environment and better lives for all.
“The Letterbox Project connects those who might be lonely or isolated, and provides them with a conversation and kinship, something we think is so important and pairs perfectly with a cup of tea. We can't wait to spread the word about this amazing initiative and see what this partnership between Tetley Australia and The Letterbox Project will bring,” Kleanthis Mantzouranis - Senior Brand Manager.
