I knowa lot of people will just not even listen to someone who is actually going to say that penpalling is a good thing when writing to prisoners but if you are able to look beyond their location and just send them a letter they will absolutely appreciate it.

I have been doing this for almost 3 years now and the person I write to is a very nice human being despite his circumstances.

I do ont really want to get into Americas justice system because that will be a long winded rant almost. There are people in prison who are not nice people and are definately users but there are also some very genuine people too. As i said I have been writing for almost 3 years and I absolutely consider this guy a friend. He is not in there for a violent crime he just made some bad choices mainly because he was greedy and he would admit that himself.

I know there is a stereotype attached to women who write to prisoners. We are lonely and sad blah di blah but not true at all. A lot of women I know who do write are busy mums and/or also have jobs and a life. they just want to make a difference and good for them. I have multiple sclerosis so really I am at home a lot so I also have the time. I also have a son so I get busy with that too and have wonderful family and friends I just chose to do this also.

Search for Prison Pen pal sites and give it a try it is really great you wont be dissapointed.
