Default Penpals for Florida inmate

My Son is pleading with me to find him a pen pal while he's incarcerated. I have checked online and there are several that charge to list an ad for him. I would be willing to pay "some" money but not a monthly charge. However, now I find out that Florida prison systems do not allow that type of PenPal subscription mail. Does anyone know how/where I can find him some penpals?

What about through a prison ministries program? I honestly don't know but I think because they are private it would be okay.

Florida state inmates are not allowed, per FL DOC policy, to have online pen pal ads. There are serious consequences.

I know that and I think that's why OP is asking for idea's on how to get some. I'm pretty sure there's a prison ministry that gets pen-pals for people it's not an online thing. I don't remember what it's called but hopefully someone here might know what it is. I know a guy who posted ads in a magazine, that I think is legal.

I know of a man sentenced to life in Florida. He is a very good friend of my fiancé. He doesn't get any mail or any visits.
It is a shame that he can't advertise for a pen pal or two. It has to be so lonely withoutany mail at all.

Hi there if he is in Florida doc then he can not advertise on line for a penpal. He could get into trouble.
You could ask him to speak to his counsellor and see if they have volunteer visitors in his area. I met some of them when I visited my ex they were nice people and they visited prisoners who had no visits. That was federal but docs may have the same.

You can put one in a magazine for him but you generally pay for it.
