                            Join MERA Pen Pals

You know that little shiver of pleasure you get when you receive a piece of mail that is personal? You know, not a bill or junk mail or 20% off coupon…but an actual person reaching out to say hello or update you on their life. Your name actually handwritten on an envelope. Who doesn’t love that?

If you would like to increase your odds of getting mail you actually enjoy, sign up to join MERA Pen Pals.

Both participants must be MERA members. You can communicate using email or the post office (although the latter is generally preferred) and you can send as many or as few exchanges as you and your Pen Pal prefer. Communications are meant to be positive and uplifting.

To join, send an email to Karen Baxter at We’ll ask you a few questions so we can match you up with a compatible MERA Pen Pal.

Here’s an AARP article for more information on Pen Pal programs for seniors:
