We received our first 20+ postcards this week, full of wonderful stories and words of kindness, humor, and inspiration! One note that really stood out said "you NEVER know how STRONG you are.. until being strong is the ONLY choice you have. Thinking and praying for you"- from Patterson, NY.
This will be a huge learning process as this project evolves. Something that would be helpful is if people can send unsealed notes. Students will read all mail to determine who would be the appropriate recipient, thus sealed mail will be opened. Also, due to hospital confidentiality, Postcard Pick-me-up is unable to be a pen pal service.
I'm amazed at how much interest we are seeing in schools and teachers across the country! Please contact me if you have any additional questions or suggestions!
