Story

Hello, my name is Toby, and I'm now eight years old. I started writing letters to every country in the world when I was five, and I have written over 700 letters so far. I am writing to anybody who can write back, but many people can't even buy a stamp, they can't even buy food! So, in a lot of countries, I'm writing to people who are there to help, like disaster specialists, and people who work for charities. ShelterBox help by sending special boxes to countries where people need them. You even get a number for your box and can see where it goes to help people! A ShelterBox has lots of things in it to help a family, like a tent and tools, and things to make the water clean, and even toys for children.

A whole box costs £590, and at first, that was my target. But then so many people helped, I now want to raise as much money as I can, but the target is for five boxes. Maybe you'd like to sponsor me for writing to the world, but I'll do other things as well - I've done a raffle already, and now, I am trying to run at least a mile for 100 days in a row.

You can read about my project at www.writingtotheworld.com, or on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/writingtotheworld/.

Thank you for helping me help people! Bye, Toby
