About Lucas

How a 10 year-old-boy dreamt of changing the world, one pen pal, one letter at a time

Lucas’ Letters started with one autistic boy connecting to another autistic boy across Canada through a simple letter. Both boys felt it was difficult to make friends, and the letter became a vehicle to connect them to each other and make them feel part of a bigger community. From here: Lucas’ Letters was born!

Since December of 2016, Lucas has written and received 33 letters. He has made connections with people in 8 Canadian provinces and even as far away as London, England. Each time a letter arrives in the mail box, Lucas learns about new places around the world, and most importantly, he remembers that he is not alone.

“Lucas’ Letters” has expanded its vision and now connects children of all abilities to each other across the world. The pen pal program is open to any child who wishes to participate! Once you sign up you will be “Pen-Pal Matched”, and receive a welcome package in the mail. From there on its time to get your pencils out and get to know your new friend!

“Lucas’ Letters” dreams of making every child feel loved, important, and part of a larger community.

Because as Lucas says, “Every child needs a friend.”
