"Dear Bahamas, I am so sorry if you lost your house," said 9-year-old Marlynn Glaub, reading from her letter. "I feel bad for you guys. I will pray for you day and night. Never give up."

"Dear friend, I hope that you find somewhere to live. I wish you well," said 6-year-old Giabella Mastroianni.

These generous, thoughful students helping to comfort the countless children they've never met, but who have lost so much.

"Because the hurricane knocked down their house, so I wanted to wish them well and hope that they feel better," said Mastroianni.

Each letter is handcrafted by kids of all ages.

"I wrote about how they should stay strong and how they shouldn't worry about anything," said Glaub. "They should just keep strong and keep trying to build their house and find somewhere to stay."

"I hope they can rebuild immediately and they get help who needs it most. And I wish the best for them," said 12-year-old Taj Amato-Heape.

Some letters will be sent to directly to the Bahamas, while others will go to Hurricane Dorian victims from the Bahamas who are now sheltering in South Florida.
