Hi! I recently started a group that sends cheerful mail to kids in difficult situations. Some of the kids we've sent mail to so far include a 12-year-old girl who was going through depression after being sexually assaulted, twins whose family is homeless, a 9-year-old whose father recently left the family and no longer contacted her, and a 3-year-old whose family didn't have money to buy her birthday presents. I know sending mail is a very small thing to do, but getting a surprise in the mail box just for them can  really brighten a child's spirits!

I wanted to post this here, first of all, to see if there are people who think their kids could benefit from getting some cheerful mail. It's completely free, and the cards and mail are from volunteers. We even got  a donation from Ricki Lake!!! If anyone is interested in learning more, our website is http://torijoy.weebly.com, and you can request mail from there as well. 

Also, if anyone is interested in joining our group and sending mail to kids, you can request an invitation at http://www.bigtent.com/groups/smilesenders

Finally, if anyone would be interested in sharing this service on their blog, I would love to answer any questions you may have or provide anything else you need!

Thanks. I hope you don't think this is SPAM... I am trying to spread the word to a many parents as possible!
