Emily’s letter, written on November 22, is one of the new form letters and shares about her hobbies & pets.
Emily also thanks me for the financial gift I sent her back in June. With the $100 I sent, she was able to purchase a bike, shorts, capris, a Barbie Doll, a backpack, & colored pencils. And you know the best part? (for selfish me anyway) The best part is the thank you came with a new photo of her & all that she bought.
Helen Angela’s letter was not dated, but was written sometime after she received the financial gift I sent for her birthday (in December). With the $25 I sent, she was able to purchase a t-shirt, leggings, and a skirt.
Helen Angela also tells me about her new friends & her favorite subject in school (crafts).
Plus, she included this wonderful drawing of an angel – I truly have a bunch of artists in my sponsor kids.
It was such a good week for letters
