Do you know a child living in difficult circumstances; a girl or boy who is experiencing loss or grief, severe illness, or other really difficult issues? Have you wondered what you could do that could have significant impact? With the Encourage-A-Child gifts, you can help a child work through and move through the emotions these circumstances create.
Each package has a carefully chosen theme. It includes an item printed with one of my art pieces and a craft or activity that coordinates with the theme. I also include an optional written letter from me, "Aunty Mellie", but you can choose to write your own personalized letter. You are free to copy any of the ideas or specific phrases from my letters.
All 5 gifts will be mailed directly to you in 4 mailers and one tube, ready to mail or hand delivered as you choose. I encourage you to spread these gifts out, giving the child to process each topic AND to hear regularly from you for a period of time (rather than just once).

The price is an "at-cost" estimate of all included materials and shipping of all 5 items to you. We are intending not to profit from this product but offer it for the least amount possible as a way of helping you bless a hurting child. The materials were also subsidized by a generous donor to keep the costs lower for you.
This Subscription is in no way intended as a replacement for professional support, counseling or mental health services.
Be aware that I write from a Faith perspective, and as such refer to God and Jesus on occasion. See the Sample Letter download for content details.
You are completely free to write your own letters - even copying any phrases or ideas you see in my letters! In fact, I encourage it!
