51 Days of Gratitude: Day Four

Dear Ms. Bruce,

I can't put in words how much Bridges means to me.  It has given me so much, from teachers that have taught me things that last a lifetime, to the brothers and sisters who will always hold a place in my heart, to the future that is brighter than the sun.  All of this I have you to thank for.  Thank you so much for this program.  Without it, I have no idea where I'd be.

51 Days of Gratitude: Day 3

Dear Mrs. Bruce,

I want to thank you for creating such a wonderful program.  Being in Bridges has taught me many valuable life lessons and I don't know where I would be without them.  The program has saved my life.  I was on a dark road leading to a mysterious future.  Now, I know what my future is.  I know what is in store for me and that's thanks to you for starting this program.  You have made a major impact on my life by creating a gateway to a successful future.  On behalf of everyone's lives you've changed, I just want to say, THANK YOU, Mrs. Bruce.

51 Days of Gratitude: Day Two

Dear Mrs. Bruce,

This is my second year of Bridges and I feel like my life is completely different.  I don't involve myself with bad people anymore or do things that are illegal.  I love that I look back and say that I would not be in a good place without Bridges.  My family struggles all the time with money, but going to school is a lot less struggle now.  I also have an idea of what I want to do with my life and how I want to go to college.  None of this would be possible without you.  I honestly love you and all you do.  Thank you!

51 Days of Gratitude: Day One

Mrs. Bruce,

To know that there was hope for me somewhere out in this world, is the best gift I have obtained.  Thank you so much for creating a lifetime opportunity and change program.  I am a first-generation student that loves to learn, be in school, teach others, and help; but I didn't know what steps to take to keep going and succeed.  Because of you, because God put you here to be a help to others, I was and have been able to keep going, continue and someway, someday, I will be able to help others.  Just because you were there to push us forward, to motivate us, maybe not literally you were here, but with your initiative, you were able to help others!  Thank you, I am in complete debt to you.  I will go forth and do great things!
