    I am an 5th grade teacher in the inner city of Minneapolis, MN. I just wanted Amy to know that she inspired our 5th grade classrooms to write Holiday Mail for our Heroes. It was a wonderful writing project and service learning project. Many of my students do not have a lot to look forward to with the holidays coming up, and many are on edge because with the holidays comes winter break where many of them do not get regular meals. As a parent this is always the hardest time of the year, seeing my students struggle. I have a lot of help to help make their Christmas more merry (thanks to my friends) and thanks to Amy we gave back. I could see the sense of pride in my students eyes and I know it made them feel good to help someone else. Thank you Amy and Jennifer for letting us know about this very worthy cause. I will put it in my December lesson plans for many years to come. Have a wonderful holiday!
