Letters of Hope
Here’s a simple way that Pacifica Alumni around the world can offer support to the communities of individuals around Pacifica Graduate Institute and the Santa Barbara, CA, area.
A few words can mean so much to people who are struggling with loss of loved ones, homes, and jobs. Every day these folks are coping with the disruption of life, as it was once known.
A simple note lets someone know that “you are not forgotten by the human family.” Lending strength, encouragement and hope through a short note or letter only takes a few minutes and can give someone the strength to face another day.
We invite all students and alumni to write physical letters or cards of hope and encouragement, place them in an envelope addressed marked “PGIAA/Letter of Hope” and mail to Pacifica’s Director of Alumni Relations (Dianne Travis-Teague, 801 Ladera Lane, Santa Barbara, CA 93108) who will give them to a local organization to share with families that are displaced or those who are struggling within the community.
If time does not permit you to mail a physical letter, e-mailed letters are also welcome. They will be printed and physically given to those in need. Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org
