Tustin – Assisteens Member Forms Her Own Charity to Help Others

A letter of encouragement can spread sunshine to someone who needs it. Assistance League of Tustin Assisteens® member and Solely Sunshine Founder  Natalie Salvatierra is 16 years old and started her own 501(c)(3) organization. Solely Sunshine is a mental health organization making a global impact by providing the opportunity for anyone to help people with mental health conditions by writing virtual letters of encouragement at www.solelysunshine.com.  All of the virtual messages are transcribed to paper and sent to children, teenagers and adults in various mental health treatment centers around the world.

Assisteens teen members of Assistance League of Tustin are actively writing letters of encouragement for people at mental health facilities on the Solely Sunshine website (www.solelysunshine.com).  All messages are required to be unique and longer than three sentences. The Assisteens are adding art to the letters as well.

Assistance League of Tustin is honored to have each of our 216 Assisteens members and pleased that the Assisteens Governing Body voted to include this letter writing campaign as one of their philanthropies.  The Assisteens want to support their fellow member and further Natalie’s vision to assist people around the world.
