Dear Realtors® for Kids,


​Thank you so much for the iPad you donated to my student. I am so grateful for your generosity. As teachers, there is only so much we can do with the time we have with our students. I wish we had school all year round so we could continue working with the kids. Summer breaks are nice, but for some kids, the regression that occurs over the long break has a significant impact on their educational success at the beginning of the new school year. The iPad will help my student maintain her skills and hopefully give her a jump start at the beginning of the next school year.


​I have been teaching Special Education at Laura B. Anderson Elementary for 23 years, and it has been the best experience of my life. The kids I work with are awesome! The generosity of organizations like yours makes that experience that much better. 


​Once again, thank you so much.

Realtors® for Kids,​


We are so very grateful for your organization. You have helped our family immensely during our time of need. Thank you for caring for kids in the Sioux Empire! We've had a tough time with two of our three boys being in and out of the hospital recently, causing us to miss work. Your grant saved us. We are so grateful for your kindness and generosity.

On behalf of Horace Mann Elementary, I would like to thank you for the excellent partnership you provided to our school in the form of a grant donation. The donation was used toward portable, handheld CD players that will be utilized in learning centers in our classrooms. Furthermore, I appreciate the time that Darrell took in touring our school and meeting some of the staff and students that will benefit from the grant donation. Thank you again for your wonderful generosity.


​Sincerely,
