Pen Pal - Mail or email!

10


10 per unit - Virtual OK

I will write you a letter of at least one page handwritten! Topic can be requested by you and negotiated, but for example I can't talk about cars because I don't know anything about them. (unless you want a page on how i've named every car i've ever owned.) I could talk about myself and my dogs instead, if you prefer! If you'd like a random letter about me, ask or don't request a topic at all. Porch gardening, raising a puppy, training service dogs, life with invisible disabilities, tv shows I like ... you never know quite what you'll get!

Letter will be mailed to you or scanned & emailed/uploaded here - either way you get to see the care that goes into a handwritten letter instead of a typed letter!

For mailed pieces, within USA only due to postage costs.

Calligraphy on envelope available on request (and/or if I decide I want to do it for you anyway), though I am a beginner! Letters are most likely to be written in cursive/handwriting, but please request if you specifically want printed or cursive.

Training & Qualifications


I love writing letters and have done it my whole life but have drifted away from it recently. I'm hoping to get back into it, and with Simbi I will know that the people receiving my letters appreciate them!

About Adrian Schaefer

Hello! I'm Adrian, and the other cute face in my picture is my service dog in training Riley! She’s a German Rottweiler, 1.5 years when I write this (born May 5, 2017), and just the sweetest love you’...ll ever meet. I also have my first service dog living out his retirement with me. Winky is a 10 year old, 10 pound, devoted chiweenie (chihuahua dachshund mix). As you might guess from the service dogs, I live with a few disabilities. I don't always have the spoons for it, but I am passionate about disability advocacy, particularly people with invisible disabilities and children with disabilities. I'm also passionate about advocacy for people of color, economically disadvantaged people, trans and queer people, and service dogs and their handlers and trainers. I'm white, but I am trans, queer, disabled, a service dog handler, and not in great financial shape. I love to write! I do fiction and poetry as well as largely ignoring two nonfiction blogs I have, one for advocacy and one for food and recipes. I curate two instagram accounts: one is servicesibs for my dogs and the other fodmap.foodventure for me, my diet and mental health. My days are shaped by my dogs, writing, and cooking and eating. In between all of that, I love watching tv and playing Ticket to Ride and other board and card games. (Cards Against Humanity, Dominion, Magic: The Gathering, Seven Wonders, and many others!) Want to know more? Just ask! I'm pretty open & not shy about politely telling you if I'd rather not answer. show more
