Snail Mail Club


Announcing the Beyond Type 1 Snail Mail Club, a pen pal program for kids and teens (adults are welcome too) with Type 1 diabetes around the world. Have you ever wished you could have a T1D friend in another part of the country, or another part of the world? Us too! That’s why we created the Beyond Type 1 Snail Mail Club!

Want to give another T1D kiddo a chance to be a pen pal? Donate to our Snail Mail Program today!

Beyond Type 1 is a company built on social media and technology, but we know that good old fashioned personal connections are just as important. Our hope is that the Snail Mail Club will foster community, create lasting connections that go beyond the page, and that some of you can even meet in person one day! At a minimum, it will give you one more person on your team.

Open to anyone with Type 1 around the world. For a donation of $10.00, you or your child will receive a starter pack of Snail Mail stationary, envelopes and stickers. Scroll down to sign up!
