I love Christmas traditions: baking Christmas cookies, making Christmas crafts, driving around the city to look at all of the Christmas lights.
Now that Topher and Ellie are a little bit older it’s time to include them in a few new Christmas traditions: Delivering baked goods to the neighbours, designing Christmas cards for friends and family, filling shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child – and taking part in More Love Letters and The 12 Days of Love Letter Writing.
The 12 Days of Love Letter Writing is exactly what it sounds like: 12 days of scripting love letters for specific recipients, nominated by their love ones, as well as several community requests. The campaign runs from December 7th through December 18th with single letter requests throughout the week with a break over the weekend to rally around a community request. Letter requests for the 12 Days are posted here.
Today we are writing love letters for Kyler.
This is his story:
Kyler has a brilliant mind and a kind heart. He has so much love to give but shows it in different ways than most people realize. His girlfriend writes, “He’s the most curious man I know and I smile every time he lingers just a little longer at the museum exhibits or when he watches YouTube videos or TedTalks just for the pure intent of being more knowledgeable on the subject.” Sadly all this passion for knowledge is being lost in depression. Kyler refuses to admit defeat and though he is a fighter, there is only so much he can do on his own. Help us encourage Kyler to keep fighting and show him that doesn’t have to go through life alone.
Send your letter to:
Kyler’s bundle, ℅ Lindsey G., 13721 Biola Ave., La Mirada, CA 90638 USA
