DANA

Dana’s sister wrote to us and described what an incredible human being she is. She shared:

“Despite a very difficult year personally, Dana continues to do outstanding work at both of her jobs. She works with children with special needs and also at a retirement home providing meal planning and nutritional services to the elderly. She is studying to get her teaching certificate, and raising her four year old twins as a single mother. She recently had her car/transportation break down so her only way around town with no public transportation is on a bike, yet she manages to have a good sense of humor about it.

Money is always tight and there are never enough hours in the day. Despite this, Dana persists in working hard, being an incredible mother to my nephews, and continues to make me laugh on a daily basis. There has never been a more snarky, beautiful, kind, funny, smart, silly, wonderful person - ever. Despite all this, she gets tired and discouraged and struggles with feelings of unworthiness. I'd love to let her know just how loved she is - how worthy of love she is - just as she is.”

Grab your pens and help us send some love + encouragement to Dana!

FRANK

A friend of Frank’s requested a love letter bundle for him. She wrote:

“Frank is a single dad of a fifteen year old son. He was recently diagnosed with cancer. Frank has no family and no one to care for his son if something were to happen to him. He is very lonely depressed and could use a little pick me up. He is the kind of man that won't ask for help, but I can see the sadness and struggle he is facing right now. Frank is one of the most caring and giving people I've ever met. Please help me brighten his life with a bundle of letters!”

Let’s pen some letters of encouragement + love for Frank in this difficult time!

ASPIRING TEACHERS BUNDLE

We received a request for a bundle for a group of hardworking students preparing to be teachers. One of these students shared:

“I'm currently in a teacher education program with a group of brilliant people. We're all working our butts off to be the most caring, efficient, equitable, social-justice oriented, thoughtful, and creative teachers we can possibly be. We student teach throughout the Bay Area (mostly Oakland) by day, and take our own classes by late afternoon/evening. We don't get weekends, because we're working on our college's assignments, lesson planning for our classrooms, applying to jobs for the 17/-18 school year, and working to meet California's requirements for becoming a teacher. We are consumed by our work and stressed, but we're doing it anyway because we care so much about young people, about our communities, and about the future for this country and everyone in it.”

Let’s write some love letters to this group of dedicated educators and encourage them as they prepare to enter the world of teaching!

GEENTANJ

We received a beautiful request from Mala for her sister Geetanjali, whom she calls Geetanj.

“Geetanj is seven years older than me and has been my best pal and supporter for as long as I can remember. We grew up with very strict parents (our dad especially was controlling, and emotionally and physically abusive), but she always supported me in my endeavours and ambitions to study abroad and challenge myself. Geetanj spent years putting everyone else before herself. Thus, she needed more time to decide what kind of academic path and career she wanted to pursue. Gradually, her dream became to become a doctor, and she started studying medicine a few years ago.”

Mala described that two years ago, Geetanj fell ill and had to be hospitalized. She deteriorated rapidly, even to the point of losing the use of her hands, voice, and eyes. After a week of tests and specialists, the doctors came to the conclusion that she was suffering from Miller Fisher Syndrome. After her diagnosis, Geetanj was placed in physical therapy where she had to relearn how to speak, walk, and regain use of her hands.

Mala also shared that directly after this difficult experience, their father admitted to having an affair, and their family fell apart. Despite these difficulties, Geetanj persevered and continued in her pursuit of medical school. However, this past summer, Geetanj faced more health problems. After six months of misdiagnoses, blood tests, biopsies, and scans, doctors finally diagnosed Geetanj with lupus. Mala wrote:

“The uncertainty and inconsistency surrounding Geetanj's prognoses have taken an immense toll on her in every way: physically, emotionally, and mentally. Both because she is a medical student and because she is looking for answers, she often consumes herself analysing every single symptom fearing that she might get worse or develop another condition. She needs positive energy, support, and love to get her through these moments of uncertainty so that she can come to terms with her conditions and learn how to better cope with the situation.”

Please join us in offering Geetanj this positivity, optimism, and encouragement that she needs!

AVIANE

A friend of Aviane’s reached out to us with her story:

“Aviane has struggled her whole life. She had very severe asthma growing up. She spent many years in and out of hospitals. When she was younger, she struggled a lot and was bullied because she couldn’t run around and play like the other kids.

When she was ten, Aviane developed anxiety and depression. She received medication for this, but most medications she tried only made her anxiety worse. It wasn’t till she was thirteen that she found one that worked.

Aviane is now seventeen and just graduated high school. She still has anxiety and depression, but she finished high school a semester early, because she is dedicated and determined. She is the kindest person you will ever meet. She works with her niece, who has special needs, during the summer and is also helping out with her nephew.”

Despite her kind heart and determination, Aviane struggles with self-worth and seeing how valuable she is. So grab your pens + join us in encouraging Aviane!
