Mari writes "Alice, Texas--Our son, Sonny Perez, has pledged to dedicate his senior year to researching the benefits of Play Therapy for children of war, and to collecting and donating toys in honor of Cpl. Orlando Benavides, a class of 2004 graduate of Freer High School, who is currently ending his 2nd tour in Iraq at Camp Freedom, Iraq. This is his Senior Project for graduation as a Distinguished Graduate.
A toy drive has been scheduled for April 4 in Freer (Muy Grande Store) and on April 11 in Alice (Wal-Mart). All toys and items collected will be shipped to Iraq in Orlando's name for BridgePeace.org
We are also taking donations for shipping costs, and your donations can be pledged at http://apps.facebook.com/causes/fundraising_pledges/60355?m=6c3a925f through April 10, 2009. For more information or to find out how you can help, please contact me at email@example.com
Yours in Christ,
Maribel S. Perez
Proud parent and supporter of BridgePeace.org"
