Dear Friends,

I am always surprised at the selfless attitude of so many caring people. The generosity is contagious. So many of you have come forward to help us help those in need who have been placed in our path. We are extremely grateful for your commitment to the Choose To Care Organization and it's mission. We have reached the ripe old age of 2 years old and it was pocket change from a large glass jar that held some long forgotten food that was used as a start-up. We always believed that when we are beckoned, help would come in time, so we forged on.

Through established organizations, in the Bronx, NYC, South Africa, Miami,Haiti, etc; we were able to gladden the hearts of many children and young adults who would have gone barefooted, or continued to wear ill-fitted shoes or shoes that have seen better days. Because of your rapid response and a little something extra, there is a cause for celebration. Thank you for your support. We appreciate all you do for the Organization and just as we knew, even pocket change can make a big difference in a child's life.

So as we bid 2009 Adieu,we hope to do better and better and we are sure we have found
the perfect partnership with you. With so many potential recipients with equally important causes, vying for your largess, we want to express heartfelt and sincere gratitude for putting a smile on the faces of children and young adults in need and a brand new pair of shoes on their feet.

Warmest Wishes!
