Details:This is a project for elves to work on at home and then drop off the cards to our office.

I am looking for Elves to help me with a special community care mission by writing POSITIVE & MOTIVATIONAL cards to teens. The Wisconsin Challenge Academy is an alternative education program designed to reclaim the lives of at-risk youth and produce graduates with the values, skills, education and self-discipline necessary to succeed as adults. As part of this program, they do mail call on a regular basis and ask for the teens family and friends to write letters to help the teens keep motivated and feel loved and to keep moving forward to finish the program.
The first 2 weeks of each class are especially hard since many are home sick and learning the ropes of a new school. The academy keeps track of teens that receive mail and over the many years have statistics to show how the letters are so important to the teens mentally as well as academically for their success. Sadly, there are many teens that leave mail call empty handed many days of their journey at school if not all of them. The program is 5.5 months away from home and some do not receive one letter ever at mail call for positive support. With that said, George's Secret Elves has contacted the facility and will collect cards written out by elves every week for this project and will send them to the contact at the facility.
If you would like to be a letter/card writer for this ongoing project, please do the following:
1) Cards can be store bought or hand made but must include a positive and/or motivational message
2) Do not add any trinkets, money, or items inside the cards (because the teens are not allowed to have those things)
3) Due to confidentiality we will not be giving out any names of the teens (and the counselors there will distribute the cards using their discretion at each mail call)
4) Please sign the card using the word Elf with your first name only (for example: Elf Kathy)
5) All cards must remain unsealed and should not have your address or contact information on the envelope or in the letter content. They can be dropped off from 12-4 in our drop box at 727 E. Walnut Street (parking and door in back and the collection box is near our office door on lower suite). Due to covid, sometimes the hours of the building vary depending on if anyone is working onsite or remotely that day.
6) Cards on a weekly basis will be sent to the Academy from the George's Secret Elves Workshop. First batch will be mailed this Saturday July 25th.
7) Letters can be handwritten if legible or typed.
8) Cards should not be gender specific
This ongoing project is a beautiful way for you to be able to help from the comfort of your own home. These letters can make a huge difference for many teens while they are on this journey. If anyone would like to contribute a monetary gift towards the cost of shipping the letters you can use our go fund me:

Let's send out some positive energy to our future leaders and caretakers of tomorrow. Let's show them their community supports their new journey. This will become an ongoing event on our calendar of events soon as well.
