FCCNY Pen Pal Program 2022

  • Your Mailbox!

Hi everyone! 

The Families with Children from China (FCC) Adoptee Board is excited to announce our adoptee Pen Pal Program! Our goal is to help connect adoptees through old-fashioned paper mail! Once you have submitted an application, we will pair you up with a pen pal to write a handwritten letter each month. We will email you monthly writing prompts to help start the conversation between you and your pen pal!

  • Application Deadline: Sunday, January 23rd 2022

  • Pen Pal Program Duration: February 2022 - July 2022 (6-month period) 

*Expectation is to send and receive a letter between you and your pen pal each month. Of course, this can continue past the program's duration if you and your pen pal would like to keep in touch!* 

Open to all ages and all adoptees, anywhere (US or international). *You do not need to be a Chinese Adoptee to participate* 

We will do our best to match you by age and interests. If you are under 18 years old, you will need parental consent to participate in the program. 

Please keep in mind, for those who under 13 years old, we will try our best to match you with someone close to the same group but cannot guarantee. This will depend on who applies.

If you would like to have a pen pal from another country, please understand that mailing from the United States to elsewhere is $1.30 for postage. A book of Global Forever stamps can be purchased for $13. You may also use 3 Forever Stamps. 

You do not need to be a member of FCC to participate, but we strongly recommend considering an FCC membership to continue to stay connected with the FCC Adoptee community! 

*Thank you for respecting the time and effort it takes to match everyone. We will do our best to match you up with your pen pal by Tuesday, February 1st 2022. Please be on the look-out for an e-mail from us at that time.*
