UF to Hold ’22 Absolutely Incredible Kid Day Letter Writing Campaign
University of Findlay’s Student Activities Board, in conjunction with Reading United with Northview (R.U.N.), invite the campus and local community to participate in the Absolutely Incredible Kid Day Letter Writing Campaign on Thursday, March 10.
Tables will be set up from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Alumni Memorial Union. Participants are invited to write letters to children from their own family or circle of friends as well as children in Hancock County who could really benefit from a letter of encouragement. Stationery, stickers, markers, envelopes, sample letters, and other supplies will be available.
Morgan Kuhlman, junior in Early Childhood Education at the University of Findlay and chair of the Absolutely Incredible Kid Day event, stated, “the Student Activities Board’s goal is for all of the children whose names have been provided receive a handwritten letter of encouragement from a UF representative or community member.” Kuhlman also noted that participants “are also free to write to children in their lives so we can spread the support and love to children all over the country!”
“I have seen the impact a handwritten letter can have on a child,” Kuhlman said. “Last year when I was tutoring some students in reading, I would send them letters to tell them how proud I was of them and how amazing they are. I got emails back from parents thanking me for doing this for their child because it showed them how much I truly cared.” She noted that this event is special as it provides much needed support and encouragement to each and every child who receives a letter. “That is why I love chairing this event because it makes each child feel special!”
Absolutely Incredible Kid Day was founded by National Camp Fire U.S.A. to provide an opportunity for all children to receive a letter of encouragement. UF’s Student Activities Board has hosted an Absolutely Incredible Kid Day campaign day for numerous years and hopes to continue the tradition to make a difference in the lives of local children.
