Mr. Alex Martinez EWED Foundation 55 Temple Place Boston, MA 02111 Dear Mr. Martinez: I am a student at Carter Middle School, and I want to help your organization. In our computer technology class, our teacher explained that our old computers can be recycled through organizations like the Education Development Foundation to help developing countries keep up with technology. I am in charge of a class project to organize the schools in our district so that we can begin a computer recycling program. Would you please send me any information you think I might need to begin this project? Please let me know how I can make arrangements for these systems to help the underprivileged schools group. Sincerely,

address. Date. My dear Father, I received your kind letter the other day. My monthly tests are just over and we are closing for autumn break next week. I wish very much to be with you all during the holidays but our school has arranged an educational tour to some of the historical places of Rajasthan and I do not want to miss the opportunity. The duration of the tour is ten days. The school has agreed to meet fifty percent of the expenses and 25 percent will be paid by the State Government. We shall have to pay the balance which roughly comes to Rs. 250 per head. Two senior teachers are also accompanying the party. They will explain to us whatever we see and, therefore, the tour is expected to be of great educational value. I shall, therefore, request you to allow me to join the trip. Please intimate your acceptance by return of mail. Please rest assured I shall take the earliest opportunity to visit you all. With regards to you and dear mother, Yours affectionately, Name.
