Attention Educators: We love the hundreds of letters we get from your 1st grade classes and other students! Keep the letters coming but please remember we have an expense in seeds and staff time to stuff each of those separate envelopes. We suggest you put all the envelopes or letters into one package and send that to us, you can then donate that postage to the cause instead of wasting postage on individual envelopes.
