Meet Lilian!

This is Lilian.  A friend told me about an organization that allows sponsors to write letters to the children for support, while someone else chooses to send the monetary donations.  This is perfect for me since my family is at poverty level in annual income.  I can not make sponsorship donations.  However, it is so easy to send a letter, and the children really appreciate it!

I have been writing to Lilian for almost a year now.  Her information was just updated.  Here is her updated information:

She writes very sweet letters, and I send her a letter from myself every 2 to 4 weeks.  It has been a very fulfilling relatioship.  I have since added 2 more children to my account and write to them regularly as well.  I don't even pay for stamps because I write the letters via their web-site!!
