We found LEI from a friend on facebook who had recently posted about sponsoring a student. My husband and I had decided just a few days prior that we wanted to contribute to a charity with the money we were saving from getting rid of cable. After reading my friend's post about LEI and the student she was sponsoring, we knew it was the perfect opportunity to make a difference in a child's life. By maintaining a connection with our student over the years of their education, we are seeing firsthand the impact of our contribution. Receiving their letters and updates brings us such joy, as they truly value their opportunity to learn. We hope to share these letters with our children in years to come as an inspiring example of work ethic and the importance of education. Overall we are extremely happy with our decision to contribute to LEI.
