DONATE

At Letters to Strangers, we write a lot of letters. But some of our favorite letters are written to people like you, who so incredibly take the time and effort to support us in our cause for youth mental health. Your generosity and connection with our vision is what makes what we do possible. For every tiered contribution, expect a handwritten letter from us thanking you for your altruism, thoughtfulness, and partnership. When we say “writing is humanity distilled into ink,” it’s because we believe that vulnerability and empathy through the written word makes human connection possible. When you choose to donate to Letters to Strangers, you are helping us bring that human connection to youth around the world, so that their lights do not extinguish. We cannot thank you enough.
