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!
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.
How does it work?
- Fill out the below form (with a parent’s help if you are under 13)
- We’ll match you up with a Pen Pal based on your answers
- Once matched you’ll receive an email confirmation
- Next – you’ll get a Starter Kit (awesome stationery, custom stamps, stickers, doodle paper).
- Write to your pen pal!
- Have other questions? Check out our FAQ!
The Snail Mail Club is free to join and open to anyone with Type 1 around the world. If you are in a position to make a donation to cover the cost of participation we hope you will, but if you can’t then that’s okay too!
So sign up, tell a friend and get ready for some good old fashioned fun!
