Do kids have pen pals these day?

I was telling 12 year old dd about the pen pals I had as a kid.
She said she would love some pen pals but I said I don’t think such a thing exists anymore?
Does anyone know if there are pen pal organisations/online groups for kids?

Following as I would like to know this too. I loved having a penpal and I think dd1 would too.

Following too! Maybe we could start a Mumsnet one? Maybe with an email address rather than home addresses for safety?
I have a bright and curious 4 year old DD who is missing other children (no school as shielding with a new baby)

I had seen the other day a link for children to become pen pals with pensioners in care homes. I agree it seems to be not around so much now which is a shame. Will see if I can find the link!
