Greetings! Dear Rhode Island is a community-led project to build connection across Rhode Island using the power of letters. At a time when many of us are physically distanced and we’re missing our usual in-person gatherings, it’s still possible to reach out, engage, and exchange.
Here’s how it works:
- You sign up.
- We match you with a neighbor.
- You write a letter.
- You receive a letter.
- Continue exchanging letters with your penpal, and/or sign up for another round to be matched with someone new!
Simple, no? Read on for the full details. Hope to hear from you soon…
Dear Rhode Island
P.S. We’re partnering with our friends at the Pawtucket and Woonsocket Housing Authorities for a special year-end edition of Dear Rhode Island. Penpals who sign up for the current round by November 16 will be matched with neighbors who may be facing social isolation. Our regular matching will continue in 2021. Full details when you sign up.
