Dear Jen and Johnnie,
I don’t even know how to begin this thank you note. I hope you both understand the tremendous impact that this will have on the children that SCMHC serves. Jen, you said it perfectly when you stated that some people will look at the table filled with stuffed animals and just see some stuffed animals, when in reality, it’s a table filled with hope, caring, and happiness. I wish you could both see the look I see when dealing with a child that is in crisis, and a cuddly, soft stuffed animal is placed in their care; the look on their face is priceless. So, even if it’s just for that particular moment in time, that “kid” can just be a “kid.”
Because of your efforts, and the efforts of everyone involved with Kindness Shared, the children are that much better off. Make no mistake, I will keep the both of you, and your organization, in my good thoughts until my thoughts are all that is left.
Sincerely, with respect and gratitude,
Hi Jen and Johnnie,
Again, what can I say except thank you to the both of you and your organization. From now until next June, we will be seeing many, many children in crisis. I’m not sure if you’re aware that we cover all schools (elementary, middle, and high schools) from the Broward County Line up to Southern Blvd. and from A1A deep into Wellington. Not to mention the calls of children we see in private homes throughout the year. Please know these teddy bears, monkeys, and pups, make a difference in these children’s lives, therefore you all make a difference. We do explain to the families where these donated “pets” come from, and they are most grateful.
With love and gratitude,
"When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully everyone is blessed."
