Disclaimer: Once we have put you in contact with a new pen pal we cannot be held responsible for the outcome of any contact of any kind made between you. For those of you who have been left in pen pal limbo, you can check out our Pen Pal forums. If you are between 13 and 17 please ask your parents permission before joining.

We do hope you use common sense and if you decide you feel uncomfortable giving your address out, don’t. We wouldn’t want you to do anything you don’t feel 100% about. Your participation is totally voluntary.
If you are sending gifts with your letter remember to check that there are no international restrictions on posting said item.

And remember, play nice people… we’re all friends here.
The Pen Pal Sign-up Schedule
Pen Pal Sign-ups are open all month.
Our current pen pal pairing schedule allows for you to sign up for a pen pal at any time when you come to our site, except in December and July, when we close the pairing rounds for holidays and IGGPPCamp prep. This means that you don’t need to remember when to come sign up, and that you can refer your friends to come any time!
It also means that waiting for your match may take a little time, as each month’s pairs are sent out in the first two weeks of the following month. For example, if you sign up on October 1, you will receive your pairing between November 1 – 12. If you sign up on October 31, you will also receive your pairing between November 1 – 12.
As always, if you have any questions or feedback, firstname.lastname@example.org – and we look forward to provide an awesome and friendship-filled experience to our wonderful community.
