It can be challenging being away from school, friends, and activities but sometimes something as simple as a letter can make a difference.

UF CWC’s Letters of Care campaign is a unique way for Gators to connect and show compassion, support, and understanding.

Once you submit your request for a letter it will be anonymously sent to one of the UF CWC’s AWARE Ambassadors who will write you back a letter of care within 5-7 business days. It’s your own personal AWARE Care Bear!
