Angela is having to deal firsthand with some of the challenges that the pandemic has sprung on students. A friend of hers shared with our community:
“Angela is my amazing friend and colleague at a middle school in a lower socioeconomic area in our city. She cares so much about her students, and is very anxious about being able to reach them and help them as she teaches online. I don’t think Angela realizes how many lives she has touched through her compassion and creativity as a middle school English teacher.
Two years ago, Angela’s younger brother took his own life, and Angela is still grieving this tremendous loss, as they were extremely close. The loss of her brother coupled with the challenges of this time are difficult for her. I want to help her see that life can be good again, and I want to help her feel enveloped in love and support.”
Let’s send some encouragement + support to Angela!

Debora’s daughter has requested a bundle of letters for her mother as she faces challenging circumstances due to an illness. She shared:
“My mom is an amazing woman. She raised me as a single parent and is my biggest cheerleader. About twenty years ago, she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, and for a while she was still able to be independent while raising my sister as a single parent. Unfortunately, over the last two years, her mobility has reduced her to being bedridden.
Despite this, she helps my sister navigate through life, who struggles with anxiety and PTSD. No matter what she’s going through, my mother has always put others first and is beyond selfless. She is still my biggest cheerleader, and I want her to receive the same support that she gives me, my sister, and everyone else.”
Grab your pens and join us in sharing joy + love with Debora!

Erin’s mother is requesting a bundle of letters for her. She shared in her nomination:
“My daughter Erin is a beautiful soul, constantly giving everything to help others. She worked two jobs all through high school, and still managed to graduate with honors. Afterwards though, she put off going to college to help me in our family business after her father passed away. The business was our livelihood, but she promised me she would go and finish her degree.
It seemed like every year something else came up, and she gave up going again. Finally, two years ago, Erin went back to school at the age of forty. She will graduate this spring as a teacher! I will never be able to show her how proud I am of her, or how much her sacrifice has meant to me. My daughter is truly my best friend.”
Join us in celebrating Erin + her accomplishments, as well as her big heart!

We received a request for a bundle of letters for Susan, who is struggling. Her caregiver shared:
“Susan is fifty-five years old and has developed very bad arthritis. She is alone and has no family. She has been very depressed lately from the many surgeries she had this last year, and sometimes it seems like she wants to give up. I have been helping her everyday with small things that make her days more comfortable and less painful, but it would be amazing if she could receive some love. I want her to see that life still has more to offer her and there is so much love out there.”
Let’s remind Susan that there is love + hope in this wonderful world!

We received a nomination for Kaitlyn who could use a pick me up! Her friend shared:
“Kaitlyn is a sweet, kind person who gives anything for her friends. I met her about eight years ago when she moved here, but she was not welcomed by all. Though she has made some very close friends–she still struggles. She turns sixteen very soon, and she is dealing with some mental health issues. When her medication changes, her whole world changes. Emotions are always very stiff and a fragile thing for her, but especially during this quarantine.
Kaitlyn’s been having a hard time being away from friends for months, feeling alone, and she has been withdrawing from her family. It is very hot here, and that has been stressful due to a surgery Kaitlyn is recovering from in addition to also recently having COVID-19 and strep in quick succession. She is regaining mobility, but is finding it difficult to recover. I care deeply about her and hope that these letters from strangers might bring some sunshine into her life.”
Let’s spread some joy + encouragement to Kaitlyn through a bundle of letters.
