We so appreciate the offer to bring such an exciting opportunity [Day at the Beach] to our youth. I was informed that one of the children stated that the event was “the best day of their life”. So, please consider us in the future. We are looking to pull together a larger group of youth and mentors next year if provided the opportunity to do so. Thanks again.

I am writing with my joy and gratitude in my heart for the generosity you have shown during this holiday season to the families at the Shelter. We have been enriched by you and your gifts. The skateboards, complete with helmets and safety pads, were a big hit, of course, as was the bike. The teachers were so happy to see the children with the books on science and saving the earth.

I wanted to write you to thank you so very much for allowing Foundation for Second Chances to participate in P.S. I Love You’s 9th Annual Day at the Beach. Our mentors and youth had an incredible time, and I feel this is an experience that they will be remember throughout their lives. It really was a privileged and blessing for us to be with you all on Saturday. As someone who does event planning, I want to say how impressed I am with the level of organization I saw on Saturday. I still can’t wrap my mind around how a small group of women can engage and mobilize so many volunteers and youth and throw such an outstanding event. The day lacked nothing, and I am in awe of all the fun activities and wonderful gifts you were able to provide the children. You are truly some incredible women with amazing hearts, so pleasant to be around, and such hard workers! This is even more evident in the caliber of kind-hearted and helpful people you are able to attract to this event. It was such a pleasure for all of us to be in the company of some truly great and enjoyable folks.

Please keep me posted on any upcoming events that you would like help with. I would really love to keep in contact with you all and support your good work. I also can’t wait for our super fab T-Shirt Design Booth that I would love to head up next year. Thanks you again from the bottom of my heart. It was an honor to collaborate with you ladies.
