During class meeting on Thursday, October 1, 2015, freshman made cards for breast cancer patients through the Girls Love Mail organization. Sophomore, junior and senior classes also wrote notes during advisory time. The effort was led by Co-Heads of Community Service Committee, Carson Peters and Faith Slaughter. Girls included thoughtful and caring messages in each of their handmade cards.
Girls Love Mail is an organization that delivers handmade cards to breast cancer patients who are recently diagnosed with breast cancer and going through treatment. Girls Love Mail was created by a breast cancer survivor Gina Mulligan who received cards when she was diagnosed with breast cancer and enjoyed receiving supportive cards during her fight against cancer. She won her battle with breast cancer and decided to also support those who continue with the fight. Individuals interested in supporting this cause are asked to develop handmade cards and mail them to Girls Love Mail, who distributes them individually to women who have been identified as being diagnosed with cancer. Girls Love Mail has a goal to receive 31,000 letters this year. The Madeira student body helped with this goal by sending along more than 200 cards, but you can help, too.
