LAURA

 

Laura’s teacher wrote to us about her current situation. She shared:

“Laura is the most deserving person I can think of to receive a love letter bundle. Laura's mother passed away last year at the age of 82. When Laura's mother became ill, Laura dropped everything, including her schooling and employment, to take care of her mother. The death of her mother left her homeless and heartbroken. Having no place to go and with no other options, 50 year old Laura was placed in a group home for mentally impaired individuals where she currently resides. Laura is living in a small apartment with three other women. Despite all of the hardships she has faced, Laura continues to take public transportation to her free GED courses at the local high school to build her skills. She is currently looking into community college and career opportunities.

Laura always seems to always have a frown on her face. I think if she received a bundle of letters, not only would that give her something special to read, but it would also put a smile on her face. I tell her all the time, but I would love for others to let her know that it gets better and we’re all on the struggle bus sometimes.”

Grab a pen and write some words of encouragement and sunshine to Laura!

HONG GE & NAN LI

Hong Ge and Nan Li’s daughter, Yuelin, wrote to us and nominated her parents for a love letter bundle. She shared that this month she is leaving for university three hours from her parents, and despite her absence, she wants them to remain loved and be reminded of the good in the world. Yuelin wrote:

My parents are first-generation Chinese immigrants that decided to take the leap, leave everything (and everyone) they love behind to move to Canada and start a new life. To say they have made sacrifices and worked hard is an understatement. I still remember their stories of working exhausting double, sometimes triple shifts, on top of being a part-time student, just so that I would have a better future. Their countless mistreatments from others is a testament to their persevering dedication to being a part of Canada. They've heard everything from racial slurs to co-workers fiercely reprimanding their struggling English, and I know they're not the only immigrants to experience isolation, depression, and stress as a result of this treatment.

I have always been proud of them, despite our generation and culture gaps, and often express my gratitude for the achievements and sacrifices they have made. It wasn't until my senior year of high school that I realized how little they saw of their own self-worth.

It would be greatly appreciated if they could receive a love letter bundle to encourage them to continue pursuing their dreams despite their age and to feel that they are valued as individuals and parents.”

Help us remind Hong Ge and Nan Li of their worth, and that their dedication is not unnoticed!

SAVANNAH

Savannah’s mother reached out to us in an effort to bring her daughter a little more encouragement. She writes:

“Savannah is a freshman at college.  Although she is bright, mature and full of life, she has experienced some serious setbacks which are catching up with her as she starts her college career.  Savannah has narcolepsy, and this sleep disorder can easily isolate her from her peers and "normal" college activities.  She usually copes with her sleep issues with strength and dignity, but being away from home has really thrown her for a loop.”

Her mother also shared that Savannah is dealing with some recent trauma, and although she is receiving counseling and is surrounded by friends, Savannah would benefit from a reminder that the world is also a place full of joy and that we need her here! So grab your pens and write some words to this young lady about how valued and loved she is!

ROSE

One of Rose’s friends wrote to us of the hardships that Rose is facing:

“Last year, Rose's fiancé James was killed. He was a State Trooper, and while writing a ticket on the side of the freeway, he was hit by a speeding vehicle. I've never seen someone so heart broken. It's been a year, and every day she shares a memory of him on Facebook, or stands up for her heartache to people who tell her, "it's time to move on.” Rose needs support,  and I think she feels very alone in the world. She feels like no one understands her and that people are trying to get her to move on when she's not ready. He was her future and the love of her life, no one made her feel more special, and then he was just gone. I can't imagine what she's going through.”

When writing to Rose, please remember that we are here to encourage and brighten her difficult days. Pick up your pens and support this brave woman with words of light and joy!
