History of Letterbox Club
The Letterbox Club is an educational program that was developed by Rose Griffiths, a former math teacher and foster care provider in the UK. Through her work as a caregiver and educator, she recognized the impact that books can make on the lives of foster care children. She started the program with a handful of children in 2002, and has now grown the program to provide parcels to over 10,000 foster care children across the UK. Each child enrolled in the program receives parcels of books, once a month, for a period of six months. Each parcel contains educational books, activities, personalized stickers, crafts, and hand written letters addressed to the foster child.
