Dear webmaster,
Hi. I want to say how great I think it is that youhave this section of your website. For most people, having an penpal is a fun hobby but probably a relatively small part of their life. But I'd imagine that for an inmate, having a penpal could make such a huge difference in how they feel about the world, about themselves, about everything...

Dear webmaster,
You don't know me, although I've checked your website quite often over the past few years... (I've seen the wallpaper change and all ;)). Anyway, I just read your personal information -had never done that before today- and I figured I'd just as well write you an email to tell you how much I love your website. I've had many snail mail friends over the last 10 years, but the ones I've found on your website were usually the most reliable and just as addicted to snail mail as me ;). Hope to be able to visit your site for many more years! Take Care, Love from the Netherlands, (19/F)

Dear webmaster,
Hi, I think that this is a great thing you are doing for these inmates, not many people realize how much just a letter means to them. I have a good friend who is incarcerated in Seattle for robbery or accessory to. They have not sentenced him yet so I can't know for sure how long he will be locked up. He is a really sweet and friendly guy who loves to run and drive fast cars, mostly he loves anything that gives a rush. He is a great friend, fun to talk to and he always makes me laugh.

Dear webmaster,
Hi, Karen, God bless you for what you are doing for prison inmates...You know it is very hard for these some ways they are like little kids and so painfully lonely even though at this facility they are bunked almost 200 men to a tiny cubicles...

Dear webmaster,
KAREN...Thank you for listing my brother on your web site. The ad looks beautiful and so is your heart. You are helping a lot of people. There are still a lot of good people in the world and your name, KAREN, is at the top of the list. I will be writing a few people from the site. God bless you and thanks.

Dear webmaster,
I posted my son's request for pen-pals on your web site in October and wanted to thank you for having created this site!! I just spoke to him on the phone a week ago and he was so excited. He has received letters to date from 5 different penpals, all of which he is still corresponding with! It has made the past few months more bearable for him to have this to look forward to! This means so much to him, and I know it will help him for a long time to come!! Again, Thank you!!

Dear webmaster,
Hi, Just wanted to let you know that (the inmate I posted an ad for) received a letter. As this is the only site I found so far that actually doesn't exclude inmates, I know it is from someone that viewed this site. Thanks for posting.

Dear webmaster,
Hi Karen, I came across your website purely by accident one day when I typed in the wrong word to a search engine. I have regularly viewed your site ever since and have also signed it a few times... Thank you for your time and good luck with the site - it's fantastic!!

Dear webmaster,
Hi, I am loving your site. I am a 13 year old female from the Uk and I've already found a pen pal.

Dear webmaster,
Just wanted to drop by to let you know your site is great. I have made so many new penpals from your homepage. Just wanted to say keep up the good work. Have you ever thought about making a newsletter?

Dear webmaster,
Thanks, Karen. I write an inmate from your website, and will probably pick up several inmate pen pals. I'm thankful for finding your website. You are a blessing to many people! Have a great Friday!

Dear webmaster,
Hello, I just want to say thank you for creating this site. It's wonderful.Most of my friends all over the world have made penfriends from this site. God bless you.

Dear webmaster,
I am a Dutch woman, and I write with prisoners, I presently write with a person from your site and I have to tell you I am glad I do. I also write with American imates via the Dutch organization Inside/Outside, but there you have to pay a fee (Euro 13,50) for this they send inmates on the waiting list a birthday and Christmas card. I thank you for the opportunity to have met my penpall and I wish you luck with your site.
Best regards
Rotterdam/the Netherlands

It's Katie. I have made a really cool and nice friend at your website. Her name is Amanda. I met her last year. She is awesome. She is 16 years old and lives in Kentucky. We have become really good friends and talk a lot and share alot of interests. Thanks for making this site, because if you wouldn't have then I probably would have never met Amanda. Thanks!
