Little gesture & Big impact # 2

Yesterday one of our girls received a photo and a small hand written letter in a snail mail. Not anything unusual. Well.....that's what we thought. When we opened the letter, its a letter in English with two Tamil (local language) sentences inserted. Child simply got a kick out of reading those two sentences.

This letter is written by a Caucasian American woman. So I presumed lot of things like probably she knows someone who can write in Tamil. As I became curious, I wrote and enquired. This is what she said in her own words: "I got the Tamil writing off from the Internet. It told some basic sentences and what they mean, so I copied them off and saved them till I wrote her letter".

It shows our supporter's heart. She knew that her child couldn't read English well but she wanted her to read what she wrote. We simply can't wait to receive the entire letter in Tamil the next time. A little gesture and a big impact.
