i enjoyed this read from start to finish. Like how you weave the two point of views together. A very satisfying conclusion!
I loved it. This could convince anyone to pack a shoebox.
Tearing up. I love the back and forth POV's woven together - Each scene and MC is masterfully written. Fabulous entry.
Beautiful work on this! I especially like the creative format you used! It's wonderful to hear what this organization is doing. Demitri brought tears to my eyes too.
Really like how your story showed two different POV's. Thought it was creative.

Well told story, and wonderful inspiration to us all; we could all do more, and the cost to us is minimal, but so huge to those less fortunate.
Wow! I love the way you mixed in the two boy's lives. Wow! It gave me goose bumps. I love the ending! Wow!
The contrasting viewpoints here are wonderful, reminding us of everything we have to be thankful for... and what all of us should be doing to help others not so fortunate. A beautiful story!
Loved the contrasting worlds in this story. Masterfully done!
Your story touched my heart. Wonderful job on the writing.
Congrats on your EC and Masters placing! Well done!
It's easy to see why this has a winning ribbon. I enjoyed the contrasting paragraphs which underscored the boys and their circumstances in life.
These purses do mean so much to the recipients--our church has been doing this for years.
Great job--congratulations.
Super congrats, Kellie, on your level placing and Editor's Choice!
We have so much - we are so fortunate, rich even - and we don't even know it. Thanks for showing this story from two opposite perspectives. Shoeboxes are a big deal. Congratulations!
Thank you for sharing!--Liked the parallel structuring.
