The International Geek Girl Pen Pals Club, also known as the IGGPPC, is a group of worldwide geeky friends. Founded in March 2013, the club was designed to bring together the nerd community through shared interests in all things geeky, a love of stationery, and an interest in making friends.
Each month, we pair hundreds of geeky peeps with their nerdy soul mates from across the globe, using their ‘Top 5 Geek Loves’ to find their perfect match. So far, we’ve paired 30,000+ very happy pen pals. We’re proud to know that many of our pen pals have found life-long friendships through the IGGPPC, and some have even travelled overseas to meet each other!
Since that first pen pal registration, we’ve grown to a large and welcoming community, and host annual events such as our popular IGGPPCamp each August, that help foster connections worldwide and provide a respite from the stress of day-to-day with a bit of fun creativity.
Our club has brought together geeks of all ages and backgrounds to help them connect in traditional and non-traditional ways. We’re proud to be spreading positivity and friendship, and fostering a loving community online and offline.
Join us, and help create friendships among geeks, worldwide.
What we believe.
We believe that all geeks are created equal. We don’t vet people here or make you take any kind of examination to ensure you are “geeky enough” to join. We love you – exactly the way you are – and we want to encourage you to love yourself, and be yourself too! (Check out our page Who is a ‘geek girl’? for more!)
No matter what you geek out about or how much you geek out about it, all are welcome. We’re believers in positivity, the power of knowledge, growing as well-rounded people, making the world a better place, being accepting of everyone, and most of all – making friends. Our manifesto might spell it out for you a bit better. In summary, we are glad that YOU are here!
