Making sure that I write to each child once a month is a resolution I make to myself each year.
Besides my monthly monetary commitments in support of the children, it is important to me that each child has a tangible connection with me on a regular basis. Each letter I send contains from one to three pictures. The pictures may be of myself, family or many times of places I have traveled. I send many pictures of nature because my nature hikes provide me with some of my favorite subjects whether it be a squirrel, butterfly or flower. Many times, a child will write back to me telling me how much she or he has enjoyed the pictures. It is so crucial to me to be consistent and to ensure that each child is aware that I am thinking of each of them throughout the year. I want the children to look forward to the mail deliveries at their center rather than being disappointed if a letter is not received.
