USUE to hold Letters to Mom charity event

Ural State Economic University will hold its annual "Letters to Mom" charity event at its Yekaterinburg campus this weekend.

Piloted in 2011, "Letters to Mom" allows anyone to write a thoughtful card to their mother, with postage paid for by the university. Event organizers expect to send more than 1,500 cards this year.

"Of course, I can call my mom [or] write an email or [use] social networks, but for my mother who lives in Chita, it would be nice to get a card as a token of my love and boundless gratitude," event organizer and current USUE sophomore Denis Sapozhnikov said. "Thanks to the sponsors, the cards will be sent to different parts of the country for free."
