    Hello PenPairs - we are currently on hiatus. Thank you for all your support through our private beta run!

    How It Works

    As penpals, we connect as citizens of a common world. Share your stories, seek neutral advice, or simply lend a listening ear.

    More than a site, a community.


    We first launched our private beta in Spring 2016, and was among the top 15 startups in Richi's social entrepreneurship incubator program Summer 2016. Our beta phase officially concluded Summer 2017. Our online registration portal will remain open and active until September 2018. Thank you for all of your support!
