It's fantastic what you are doing in raising money to help our families. Without this type of generosity and dedication it would be so much more difficult for our families. Being able to purchase new uniforms for the children helps them feel less displaced. Many times children have been teased because we have only been able to find them second hand uniforms. We always strive to reduce their stress as much as possible. Please pass on our gratitude to those who have contributed to helping these families.

Also, I wanted to let you know that the student ... said that the day we purchased his uniforms was “the happiest day of my life”. When he opened his backpack with the book list that you provided he was very pleased to see all the school items and he said “I love all my things.” The recorder was very sought after by his (sibling) as well!! His mum gave me permission to tell you his feedback.

I would just like to thank you again for your generosity in supplying the uniforms to the 2 new families ... I wish you could have seen how happy and excited the little girls were this morning to be starting their new adventure in brand new uniforms.
It is an amazing thing you are doing for these families.

I am just writing to say thank you for the support you have provided for our families this term. Without your support the children in this refuge would have had second hand uniforms and whatever stationery we could have collected ourselves. This term you have supported the smooth transition of at least 10 children.
A teacher...stated that she has noticed a difference in the students coming to school with brand new uniforms and their full booklist in comparison to past students we have supported. The look on the face of the kids as they open up their brand new school bags full of new stationery and books makes our job worthwhile.
