Our founder, Jennifer Rice, writes, "our son was being treated for AML when I met many parents in the hall, family lounge, and in other parts of CS Mott Children's Hospital. During our stay, he was incredibly blessed by mail from loving friends and family and even strangers. This stirred an idea in my soul.
When a recovering teenage friend was going thru very hard days, it occurred to me that mail could make a difference - even mail from complete strangers. We prayed and our letters/small gifts made such a positive impact that we decided to share it with other families.
I praise God for this idea to use one of my favorite activities - letter writing - to make a substantial difference in people’s lives. Special thanks to our members that have made this idea a reality.
Please let me know if you’d like to join us. Our goal is to send monthly SWL card and packages to each selected family year-round."
