Legacy Children’s Foundation

Character Development

As many of you know, we engage our students in hand-writing thank you notes to you for the many gifts you provide to LCF.  We recently spent a Sunday afternoon writing cards to loyal supporters.
 
The following thank you note, written privately and with NO adult coaching as to the content or conventions, exemplifies the heart and soul of our students.  

“Dear  _______.

I want to thank you for everything you have done for the Legacy students, my family, and me.  Every penny that you have invested in us has helped us so much.  Over the past few years, I have gained so much knowledge about myself, the world, and my peers.

Before being in Legacy, I was a very shy and scared student.  I never had a conversation that was more than just a “hi or hello”.  But every moment spent with the Legacy students, and mentors have helped me break past all my barriers.  Being a member of this program has also helped me build my math and reading skills.  The only thing that has helped me achieve that, was by going to Sylvan.  Most kids did not enjoy spending their summer days learning, but I did.  Just knowing that there were people that care about my future has helped me a lot.

I also want to thank you for…
– taking some time out of your life to come on some trips with us.
– coming to some of my basketball games.
– believing in me, and all of the Legacy students.

No words can actually describe how thankful I am for everything you have done.  I really appreciate it.

Sincerely,
________”
