Dear Adong Lucy,

I'd love to thank you for the wonderful hat that you have made for me. I've just heard Kohl speak at my university, and was dumbfounded at the drive and motivation that you display in providing for your family despite the circumstances that you've endured. You are an inspiration!

God bless,
Seth

Dearest Adong,

I just played a music festival and stumbled across the booth for Krochet Kids. I set my eyes on the amazing tale that this organization puts on, and in the midst had checked out a beanie that was lying on a table. Not only did I fall in love with the beanie, but fell even more in love with the tag inside. The work you do is absolutely beautiful.

Thank you for the work that you do.

You have inspired me.

It is the little things that make this big planet keep circling.

Much Love,
