Report: Christmas cards project
One of lifespark’s members had a wonderful project idea just before Christmas: Sending Christmas wishes to the inmates on our waiting list, who didn’t receive a pen pal yet, to let them know that they are not forgotten (the average waiting time is about two years in order to receive a pen pal) and that we are doing our best to find a pen pal for them. The project was a real success and a lot of lifespark members participated. Thank you on behalf of the board!
To display the project’s success as well as the thankfulness of our waiting inmates, we decided to display a selection of their answers here.
