We love the steady stream of letters we get about our helmets. If you want to read some of the stories that we have posted about those letters here on the blog, click here. These love letters generally have a common theme – they tell the story of how a Nutcase helmet helped save a brain from a little – or a lot – of damage.
The letter below is just a little bit different. The letter writer, Ethan Weldon, doesn’t have a Nutcase helmet, yet. But he’s already clear that he loves his brain and that a Nutcase helmet is a pretty good way to keep it a little bit safer.
Ethan, it is clear, should possibly head for a future in sales and marketing.
My name’s Ethan Weldon. I’m in fifth grade at Ysabel Barnett Elementary School. I ride my electric scooter to school, and when I do, I want the best protection. If I had a Nutcase helmet, I would ride my scooter more. I would feel safer from falling and hurting my head. I wish I had one.
I know how important a helmet is. My mom’s a nurse, and she thinks that you have the best helmets. I normally just use a regular helmet, but I would feel cooler and safer with yours. I think that you have the best colors and designs. I think that kids my age would actually wear your helmets because they are so cool. That could actually save some 11-year-olds [sic] life. Thanks to those bright colors and awesome designs, lives could be saved. I hope that all kids can protect their heads and wear one of your helmets.
In my class we have a great reading program. Each student keeps track of his/her reading pages. So far, I have read 17,000 pages in just 22 weeks! Pretty amazing! At the end of the year, we have a silent auction with all the donations we have received. Each page counts as one auction point. This is a great program. It really motivates me to read more at school and at home. ]
Many generous companies have donated items to our class. We would really appreciate any items you could contribute to our reading auction.
Thanks for your time.
Yes, dear reader, we sent Ethan’s school a Mellow Swirl helmet for the reading auction. How could we not? With 17,000 points, we hope Ethan will have read enough pages to redeem the helmet himself. Good luck Ethan.
