Dear Echelon members…

 
This year the Echelon Club's Adopt A Letter Christmas campaign has decided to team up with Didrick Medical’s "World Hand Foundation", launched after winning the 2009 Perfect Pitch Award judged by Sir Richard Branson, to help children in need. Not only are we going to continue our program answering the wishes of thousands of children in need located in some of the most impoverished areas of Los Angeles, we plan to deliver hope to children around the globe who are missing limbs.The program will provide prosthetic devices for those who lack insurance or financial resources! In the U.S., children under the age of five make up the largest group (outside the workplace) to lose fingers. The World Hand Foundation is able to purchase and fit fully functional prosthetic fingers at a price lower than any other foundation in the world, thereby enabling most children to be helped. We plan to travel from city to city and country to country this year helping as many children as we can by offering free prosthetic care this holiday season. Already, since the partnership was formed in August, children have already been writing letters to Santa asking for some help to be able to live a normal life. To lend a hand to their campaign please consider contacting the World Hand Foundation to make a tax deductable donation and share in this opportunity to help at: www.worldhandfoundation.com

Thank you for your help!

Kimberly

Dear Echelon members…

 
Throughout the year, The Echelon Club has supported numerous global charities in the fight against AIDS, poverty and famine, but when I take stock of a very  successful year, I realize that our greatest accomplishment is to take care of those in need right here in our own community.

To that end, I have personally been collecting letters to Santa from the South Central US Post Office, written by children here in some of the more impoverished areas of Los Angeles and fulfilling their Christmas wishes.

As my Echelon Christmas project, I would like to ask you all if you can please adopt one or more letters to answer personally so that you can know the true joy of Christmas giving. I am not authorized to redistribute or publish any of the letters, however if you would like to meet and read the letters personally please feel free to contact me.  And if you feel that you are pressed for time during this busy season, any donation or toy purchase that you care to make on behalf of my endeavors will be greatly appreciated. 

100% of your donation will go toward the purchase of the gifts requested by the child in each letter.

As Santa’s helper, I will personally be buying and delivering these gifts to each home requested by the child in the community of South Central LA on Christmas Day.

The list of letters will be posted at: www.adoptaletter.org (under projects) and will be updated regularly as needs are fulfilled. Above the letter list, please be sure to fill out your information with the letter number you would like to adopt. For example: (John Smith, Letter #2, #47, #19). Your name may take a few minutes to appear. Please note: If you see the same letter # written more than 1 or 2 times, it signifies other brothers and sisters living in that household. Once you've adopted a letter, an email will be sent to you along with a drop off location in your area. We can also send a volunteer for pick up. Please do not wrap your gifts.

Thank you in advance for your caring, generosity and for all the smiles you will put on the faces of others less fortunate on Christmas day. I look forward to seeing you in 2009.
 
Many blessings and Happy Holidays to you all!
