Save the Children believes every child deserves a future. In the United States and around the world, Save the Children work to make sure that children have what they need to be healthy, go to school and be safe. We were thrilled to partner with Save the Children and host our own Letter Writing Party to give Kandou volunteers an opportunity to send happiness to a child in need. With Sponsorship programs in 23 countries, the organization reaches over 2.8 million children globally.
It may seem like a small thing, but for kids living in poverty, a simple letter can mean so much. It says "Someone's thinking of you," and "Someone's rooting for you" and "We believe in you."
Save the Children Letter Writing Party
At our Letter Writing Party last week, Kandou volunteers gathered around a large conference table in downtown Manhattan full of colored markers, papers and stickers with the sole intention of brightening up a child's day. With the opportunity to write caring letters to children in Haiti, we got to release our inner child! It was a great sight to see!
From cartoons, to poems to lengthly journal entries, we saw a great display of compassion in the letters written (some of them even in French). Collectively, we had 73 letters handwritten and ready to be sent to Haiti!
We had so much fun and we're excited to partner with Save the Children again for future events! If you're interested in coming along and joining the fun, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can keep you updated on our next event. Or, keep up to date on the Kandou iOS app for new and exciting ways to give back to your local community.
See you at the next one!
