Join Me And CARE In Sending Letters Of Hope

Join me and CARE in sending letters of hope to encourage students in developing countries to pursue their educational dreams.  #SimplySaid

CARE is a global humanitarian organization that fights poverty by empowering girls and women and providing life saving assistance in emergencies.

While the topic of education is often discussed here in the U.S., it’s not because poor children are excluded from the opportunity. Our public school systems are free. I’d like to introduce you to some children in developing countries who are often unable to attend school because of of barriers and obstacles. In some developing countries, girls are expected to quit school at a young age and devote themselves to household chores.  

Many girls don’t have educational opportunities to pursue their dreams, like Bridget who wants to be a doctor. It’s humanitarian organizations like CARE who have the resources with your help to make dreams come true for these girls.


Meet Bridget

Bridget wants to be a doctor when she grows up. She lives in a community where the nearest health clinic is a 6 mile walk one way. Can you imagine being too sick to move and can’t get medical help because you can’t walk six miles? Bridget wants to become a doctor one day so she can build a clinic in her community and help people. Can you imagine a child whose thoughts are to meet the needs of her community? We can help Bridget.


Meet Mary 

Mary, 15, lives with her grandmother in Mukuru Kwa Reuben slums of Nairobi, Kenya. She does not know where her parents are. One of Mary’s chores is fetching water. She enjoys going to school and hopes to someday become a journalist. Her biggest challenge to achieving her educational dream is not having school fees.
Meet my granddaughter, Ashley
She is the youngest of 5 children in her cozy home where she is well provided for. She doesn’t worry about school fees. In fact, she expects to graduate from high school and then go to college so she can pursue her own dreams. 
Back to school time here in the U.S. means meeting new teachers, loading up on school supplies, new clothes for the season, bus schedules and after school activities. It’s very different here in the U.S. and that is actually wonderful for our children.  We are in a position to help less fortunate girls and students around the world. 
What you can do right now? Send a letter of hope!

  2. I think this is a great idea. CARE does a lot of great work in other countries. I can’t imagine being treated this way just because I’m a girl. It is so unfair.

  13. I love this! We take education for granted here in the U.S. and forget that it is a privilege to some regions of our world. We get frustrated with our teens who just want to “get it over with” when others can’t wait to begin. Thank you for sharing!

  14. Care seems like an amazing organization that helps so many girls with their education to make their dreams come true. These letters of hope is a great campaign indeed and is a great way to pay it forward also. Thanks for sharing this awesome organization and campaign.

  15. It just rips my heart out when I read stories about children like Bridget. It reminds me of the orphanage we help support in Haiti. Our church purchased all of their back-to-school supplies including uniforms for the entire orphanage and I cried when we saw the photos. Sending a letter of hope to inspire these children is such a great idea. When we all work together, we can do so much for these children.

We enjoying hearing from you!
