I wish you warm greetings and hope that your days are filled with success and good health. After the short greeting, I want to go ahead and thank you very much for how happy you have made me by giving the opportunity to be one of the beneficiaries of the scholarships that you are offering the young people of Guarjila. Know that my family and I appreciate your support greatly. It is a huge opportunity for me to be able to study for the career I have chosen for myself and enjoy very much, which is to be a journalist. One of my biggest goals in life is to be a journalist in order to help my family and my community.
I hope to be very successful in my studies with all of the effort and great care that I can give and more than anything else place myself in the hands of God, knowing that he will never abandon me. I, again, want to tell you how much I appreciate your donation to my university scholarship, which has given me great happiness and motivated me to make all the sacrifice possible to do the best in my studies. I wish you good luck, and again thank you so much.
May God bless you,

Dear wonderful scholarship donors:
Warm greetings from Sonia Maritza and all of my family. I wish you happiness and joy with your friends and family this season. I want you to know that for me it is an honor to be able to write you and tell you how incredibly grateful I am that you have donated to my scholarship that will allow me to study at the university and achieve my dreams and the dreams of my family.
I very much enjoy the major I have chosen: Science Education. I think that education contributes greatly to the productive development of society and at the same time I like to share my education and my gifts with the community. I will be enrolling this month in December to take my orientation course so that I can start by degree in January in the University of Monsenor Oscar Romero. I will dedicate myself fully to my studies to be very successful.
I want to thank you again so much for your support before I say farewell.
May God bless you and with all my heart I wish you a Merry Christmas,

I hope this letter finds you in good health and surrounded by your family.
I am writing to thank all of you who have donated to my scholarship. Thanks to you I will be able to start one of my dreams, which I hope to complete successfully. The news that I received the scholarship filled me with so much joy. I did not know what to say, the happiness had invaded me completely. Moreover, I was sleeping when I got the call and my dreams left quickly. I did not think I was going to get this great news so quickly and it has been the best Christmas gift that I could ever receive. My parents also shared in my joy and are so happy to know that I will start my studies this year.
I know that I have taken on a big responsibility and commitment to each one of you. Thank you for believing in me and granting me the opportunity to improve my life, I will always be grateful with all of my heart. I wish you, the people who have believed that the youth can improve their lives, many blessings especially in this time of year. May God fill your life with blessings and a happy new year. It has been a pleasure writing you. Well, take care of yourselves and may God bless you.
With much love,

With this support I will be able to continue my post-secondary education and realize my dreams, which is to study in order to work to provide a good living. Moreover, I want to help my family and contribute to the betterment of my community with the knowledge that I gain from my studies.
I also thank God for allowing people who show as much solidarity as you helping us improve our lives professionally. In our community, there are not many opportunities like this that you have offered us. I want to let you know that I will begin studying in January of next year and my family is very happy that I will be able to do so. Also my family is very appreciative of you all. I know that it took a lot of effort and work for you to give me this help and for that reason I promise to be a very good student and put all of my effort into having good grades to not disappoint you all.
With these few simple words, I will say farewell from you my esteemed friends, wishing you a merry Christmas and a new year filled with many blessings. May God take care of you with great health and peace in your households.
