This is the most important, emotional post I have ever or probably will ever write.
I found this website from reading Glamour magazine, they had written about it and I thought I would have a look.
POST PALS is a charity set up and manned by volunteers to help sick children in a way that anybody can do. It doesn’t cost a fortune, you don’t have to commit to anything, all you do is write a card, or a letter to a sick child.
We all know how much a nice letter or card can brighten our day. Imagine these children and their siblings, parents, carers or guardians. Just a little letter or card can bring a smile to their faces when they are struggling with their health.
No home addresses of the children are given, they each have a PO Box. If you want to help, have a look at this site: http://www.postpals.co.uk
You can read about each child that is waiting to hear from you. The web page will give you advise on what kind of things to write AND what NOT to write.
If you like you can send little gifts, they can be as inexpensive, home made or expensive as you like. The site has guidelines on things to be wary of depending on the child’s illness.
I’m writing this blog post to make more people aware of this amazing organisation. Please help if you feel you can. You can also help by spreading the word. Noone is too old or too young to write. There is a cuddly toy writing to one of the children! 😉
Make a child smile, it will brighten their day.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
