Chest binders, handwritten notes, and stickers on table in preparation for a mailing

Letter Writing

With every free chest binder or pair of free trans femme shapewear that Point of Pride donates, we include a handwritten, affirming note of support. These notes have a huge impact on the folks who receive them, and we are always in short supply. No sign-up necessary! You can start writing cards right away.
