There are over 140 million orphans around the world, many of whom are lacking the love and encouragement every child deserves. Paper Bridges was founded in 2017 to encourage and inspire orphans by sending them handwritten letters written at workshops, as well as small craft and care packages with supplies such as pencils and notebooks. We partner with schools and community groups to set up letter writing workshops for caring individuals to let the orphans know that they are loved and cared for. The feeling of belonging that a letter can instill not only brighten up an orphan's day, but is also an important part of a child's emotional development.
To date, we have impacted over 1000 orphans in 12 different countries including Myanmar, China, Guatemala, Zambia, and more. It is heartwarming to see pictures and videos of a child's face light up as they open up and read these loving letters.
However, in order to keep this project going and to increase the number of letters and packages we can send, we need your help! Every dollar goes towards supplies and shipping these packages to orphanages, and any donation will make an impact.
Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to us.
