Dear Ms. Karamath,

We would like to sincerely thank you for your recent donation of knitted and crochet baby items and recipes with hand cloths for the auction we held at our ls` Annual Rosie's Act One, Rose of Sharon's cabaret theatre event. The members of `Casting off the Cold' have been extremely generous to families at Rose of Sharon over the past two years. Special thanks to Tracy Jennrich, Pat Thompson, Nayana Shah and Kim Van Blarcom for their direct contribution to these auction items. We appreciate all of the work that your group achieves for our young moms and their babies.

Your generosity allows us to continue to uphold our mandate - to provide supports and services to pregnant and parenting women under the age of 25 living in York Region. Your gift will touch many lives - thank you!

It is through your support and the support of others that our young mothers and students are able to improve their lives and experience positive change.

"Rose of Sharon not only helped me be the best mother I can be, but it also helped me realize I can still fulfill my dreams" Rose of Sharon Student

On behalf of the Board of Rose of Sharon Services for Young Mothers, our agency staff, and of course the mothers and their children - many thanks for your generous contribution.
