Heart for Kids

For young girls and boys who end up on the streets of Brazil, abuse and exploitation are all too common experiences. They are often very confused about the concepts of love. The Heart For Kids program is one of our efforts to help get them on the right track.

We use our Valentine’s Day as a fun way to talk about love, relationships and how to manage those feelings without manipulating or being manipulated.  Clearly, our kids have had lots of negative role models. Each year, you can join us in the fun of communicating a positive message! Next year, we will post a list of names of our students so that you will be able to personalize your cards. We ask that you then mail all cards to our US office by May 1 to ensure that we will be able to personally deliver them on the Brazilian Day of Love on June 12.

On Valentine’s Day, you can make cards for the children at Hope Unlimited, and then send them to us! It may seem like just a small act of kindness, but getting a personalized card is really a big deal to our kids. Many have never received a letter or card from anyone. You can find a downloadable card with Portuguese phrases to help personalize it here. You may also choose to make a card using your own materials. Many friends of Hope even host Valentine’s Day parties where they share the joy of making cards together.
