An eight-year-old boy by the name of Fore Putnam wrote a letter to three people to help his dying father: one to President Trump, one to the “First Daughter” Ivanka, and one to Santa Claus.
According to CBSNews.com, Fore was wishing and praying for a new kidney for his sick father.
In the letter to Mr. Trump, the little boy wrote, “My dad has been sick for a long time… I want him to get better, so he can get a job again so we can play. My mom just left, so if my dad gets better, she might come back… Please help my dad for Christmas. That’s all I want for Christmas, and maybe one toy.”
Much to their surprise, President Trump personally responded just a couple months later
Here’s what they said wen they got it in the mail:
“I went to the mailbox and I got it out and it was in the official envelope,” Fore’s grandmother, Sheila Sherrill, told CBS News. “I really thought it’s probably just a canned picture of him with some sort of canned response. But I called my son and told him that Fore had some mail here. And when we opened it, I was just in awe. As busy as presidents are, he took the time to write to an 8 year old that has such a heart for his dad.”
Here’s the happy young man when he received Trump’s response:

Here’s what Trump’s letter said in response:
Dear Fore: Thank you for sharing your story with me. I am so sorry to hear that your dad is going through a difficult time. It is clear that you care so much for him. I have shared your letter with my staff, and they are working to see what help they can provide.
I can tell that you are a brave young man with a big heart. I admire your determination to make sure your dad has the support and resources he needs to feel better. I hope you know how much joy and encouragement you already bring to him.
Mrs. Trump and I will keep you and your dad in our thoughts and prayers,
With very best wishes, Donald Trump
Here is a picture of the letter that Trump sent:
“It really has given me hope,” Trae Putnam told CBS News.
“I’ve been on the kidney list for three years and you kind of feel helpless, just like I’m never going to get it. But all of the people that’ve responded to it on Facebook, and people calling. We’ve actually had a few people give us their information that are interested in maybe donating.”
What a beautiful story. We’re so happy that President Trump wrote this letter to this brave young man!
Isn’t it sad that CNN won’t report on a story like this? It’s too positive for their viewers, and they’d rather be talking about an attention-seeking porn star for ratings.
