you for caring about children in distress
and for demonstrating it through your recent
donation to the Dr. Laura Schlessinger Foundation’s
My Stuff™ Bags Program. Your gift
will have an immediate, positive impact in
the lives of children who must
be rescued from terrible abuse and neglect,
and who enter crisis and foster care with
no belongings and little hope.
of the generosity and concern of people like
you, the Dr. Laura Schlessinger Foundation
was able to deliver 73,000 My Stuff™ Bags
to children all across America in 2003, and
hopes to do even more in 2004. Since nearly
300,000 children enter foster and crisis
care each year, often without so much as
a toothbrush or a teddy bear, we must keep
increasing our efforts so that each and every
one has some new “stuff” to hold on to.
message of a My Stuff™ Bag, for each
child receiving one, is simply this: lots
and lots of people care about you. It’s a
profound message to a hurting child, and
one that can’t be conveyed without your help.
If this is your first time contributing to
our program, we thank you for joining this
important mission. If you are one of the
many Foundation friends who continue to play
a part in the “miracle” of My Stuff™ Bags,
we hope you know by now how very grateful
we are to those who make this program possible,
and the significant difference we are making
in the lives of children.
behalf of Dr. Laura, the Dr. Laura Schlessinger
Foundation and most importantly the children
we serve, I send sincere gratitude for your
contribution to the My Stuff™ Bag program.
