Hundreds of prisoners are using to share their stories with the public. These are lonely, forgotten human beings who have lost so much Â friends, family, freedom.
The main office located in South Carolina has been helping prisoners find pen pals since 2002. Many visitors report that they stay on the site for hours, spellbound and read ads. Many of these men and women prisoners behind bars never get letters and spend as many as 23 hours a day in their cell. That hopeful transition to a better life, a productive life, can be positively influenced by your kindness and compassion when you offer words of encouragement in a simple card or letter.
The social networking apps that are really fronts for dating apps are a poor substitute for PPW.
This is hands down the best pen pal site I've been to.
We will quickly ban without notice anyone who does not respect people's wishes as posted on their profiles. We're sorry, but as we are located in the United States, there are issues with people over 18 contacting those under 18 years of age.
These are mostly for your protection and privacy, and the enjoyment of everyone. If you are 13 years of age or younger, you may not post penpal requests on this site. We will instantly ban anyone who violates this, and we will delete profiles that appear to be looking for love, marriage, or sexual activity of any kind. If someone says "NO penpals from USA," and you are from the USA, do not respond to that request.
We're very sorry about this, but laws passed in the United states recently have made it illegal for us to let you use this site without your parents' consent, and we have no way currently to get that consent. If someone says "Females only," and you are a male, do not respond to that request.
The cost to see the hundreds of prisoners ads, addresses and more? After all, these individuals are human beings, have feelings, and want to straighten out their lives!
Let's give them a reason to hope for a better future. For any non-computer user who would like a list of prisoners who want mail, simply send a self-addressed stamped envelope to the company and request one.
