Purpose Postcards

Purpose Postcards are an opportunity to connect with someone currently incarcerated in Pennsylvania.

Just follow these easy steps:

  • Select a person to write to from the list below. This list has been provided by Let’s Get Free. Learn more about their work at
  • If you want to start a correspondence, consider your capacity. How regularly are you able to write? We think once or twice a month is appropriate.
  • Don’t feel like starting a correspondence? No problem! Decorate your postcard using the art supplies at the table. A personal drawing or note is just as impactful as regular correspondence.
  • Drop your postcard off in the mailbox. Feel free to decorate the mailbox too!
  • Tell the people you came with tonight to write a postcard!

Tips for starting the conversation:

  • Introduce yourself and tell your person what inspired you to write them.
  • Describe your setting: where you are, who you’re with and what you see and hear.
  • Describe what you are reflecting on during your visit to Eastern State and ask the person you are writing to share something they’ve been reflecting on lately.
  • Ask the person you are writing to what their favorite things to do outside are and share some of yours.
