Thank you letter from kid and mother

To all of my supporters

To all of my supportersI am grateful for the financial support that I have received. I am still young and still in the process of maturing as an adult, but I believe that many people support and have high expectations for me. In order to meet those expectations, I would like to work harder and aim higher for better things. When I become an adult, I would like to help those who are not able to pursue what they want to do.

To NPO Littleones

To NPO LittleonesWe are incredibly grateful for the support that you have given us. My daughter loves to be in physical activities so much that I wanted her to play some sports when she reached second grade. However, due to financial and other reasons, I didn't think I could provide her with everything that she wanted to try out. Thanks to the scholarship you have provided, she was able to start taking tennis lessons. She has been working hard and even dreams of becoming a professional tennis player some day in the future. I can't even begin to tell you how grateful I am for giving her the opportunity to live out her dreams.

A letter from a mom with a 6-year-old daughter

First of all, please accept my apology for the delay in response until now in May. We have been terribly busy since school started in April. You have been supporting us since my daughter was a baby. I can’t believe that now she made it all the way to entering elementary school. I have been crying with joy during the Kindergarten graduation and school recital since March. By the time she entered the elementary school I cried so much that no more tears seemed to be left. I can’t believe how big of a girl she has become. I never imagined that I would get to take a picture in front of a sign that said, "The School Entrance Ceremony".

The first time I met you was when she was around one year old. Since then, you have taken us to events and barbecues together. Without your help and support, I couldn't take her to so many of these events on my own. I'm glad I could participate in all those events because I was even able to make some friends of my own. I can't express how grateful I am.

There were times when it was difficult for me to try all the new things, but I was able to make it because of the other moms’ encouragements and support from Littleones. When I was in trouble, you were quick to help me out. I am sure that I am not the only one who appreciates your effort and help. Thank you so much for your commitment and support. I am looking forward to spending more time with you and your volunteers.
