Hi, Everyone!
I would like to introduce A Dose of Love, a medical student run organization here in Michigan. How much fun is it to receive a letter in the mail?! We put a modern spin on the classic pen pal and want to put a smile on everyone's face. We are reaching out to the special needs children and adults of Michigan to pair them up with a medical student buddy who will send a handwritten card and small gift in the mail every month. Our mission is to inspire the highest quality support, while creating treasured, extraordinary moments. There is no cost to sign up for the program. We are so thrilled to be partnered with the Down Syndrome Guild of Southeast Michigan! Please check out our website for more info and instructions on how to sign up. We look forward to addressing a card to you soon :)


All the best,
Alex Heromin
A Dose of Love
