Receive a Postcard from a Tanzanian Child

Hearts in Unity is offering a unique opportunity for you to help in the education support of an orphan or at-risk child in Tanzania, Africa, and in return receive a postcard of thanks directly from that Tanzanian child.

Hearts in Unity representatives will be returning to Tanzania again in November 2010. For each $5 donation you make to Hearts in Unity before October 15, 2010, we will purchase -- on your behalf -- a postcard, postage stamp and school supplies (pens, pencils, paper/notebook) when we arrive in Tanzania.

We will present your gift of school supplies to a child in one of our Tanzanian villages. The child will then write a thank you note to you on the postcard, and we’ll mail the postcard to you directly from Tanzania, Africa.

To learn more information and to participate in this special project, please visit the Postcards from Tanzania page of our website.

Do you have room in your heart to reach out to a child in Tanzania?

An Encouraging Word

It's amazing!

In just 3 short weeks since we announced our partnership with Postcrossing.com, we have already received over 100 postcards with wonderful, heartfelt messages of encouragement and friendship for the orphan and at-risk children in our Tanzanian villages!

Our grateful thanks for the postcards we have already received from those in:
Australia, Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Costa Rica, England, Finland, Germany, Helvetia, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Slovenia, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand, Ukraine, and the USA
We at Hearts in Unity are sincerely humbled by the outpouring of love that has been shown towards these precious third-world children who have so little.

The postcards that have already been delivered were placed in the hands of Tanzanian children looking up with huge smiles of anticipation on their faces. Imagine the delight as they looked at the pictures on the postcards and listened as the written greetings were read to them. Their eyes lighting up in wonder as they saw phrases in their native language of Swahili written by someone in another country so far away.

Postcrossers are truly a special group of people who have hearts of gold! On behalf of the children, ASANTE SANA -- THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts!
