Daniel Everette Hale 26069-075
P.O. Box 1000
Marion, IL 62959
Use plain white paper, no cards, with black or blue ink, handwritten or printed. Use standard size envelopes, no packages. You can send up to 6 pages, double-sided. Please use your full legal name and a physical address as the return address, not a P.O. Box. Also be aware that Daniel can't respond to group or organizational letters, only to individual persons. Daniel can receive photos (in color) in the mail, fun memes, transcripts (such as of interesting podcasts) and printouts of news articles. He is hoping for articles you found compelling, work out routines to help pass the time, and words of affirmation! Hand drawings are allowed, and we encourage them. Daniel has received a generous inundation of reading materials – he sends his thanks, and asks to hold off for now unless you get a specific request from him.
