Good Afternoon Mr. Ellison!
I am Marlet Villa a 22 year old young lady who lives in the south region of Texas. I am overwhelmingly joyful to have found a way to contact you. I hope you do read my email. I know you probably have so many emails come your way, but I hope this one becomes a peculiar one and a unique email to you as it is to me. I have a project in mind and am planning it slowly in hopes to one day see it come true. Through email it might be too long to explain it, but here is the reason for my email. I would like to plan a Mission trip to Ometepe, Nicaragua. I went on a mission trip to this beautiful island three years ago and saw the necessity of the people rising as they only earn about $1 a day working in the fields or in the fishing industry. We worked at a small school in the area, where kids had the very minimum supplies for school. So, I wanted to extend this project to you and the great company of JCP! Which really, I find JCP to be a very friendly and wonderful place to shop. Least to mention, the quality of the clothes is exceptional. With that said, my project includes making or donating the school there school uniforms for every child attending the following school year. My mom bought our school uniforms at JCP as my brother and I passed grade levels from K- 6. School uniforms adds a sense of ownership to the child as he/ she walks into the school grounds. In hopes for your agreement with this project I think it will be a great way to contribute to these families in the island of Omete with JCP uniforms and embark in the great commission which was left to us by Jesus Christ:
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Matthew28:19
Thank you so much for the great company of JCP! Thank you for your time as well. If possible, you can contact me to my cell phone number
