Post Pals // Post A Smile To A Poorly Child

It goes without saying that very very sick children touch all of our hearts. As adults being unwell is challenging enough in every aspect, but a child living with such a severe illness, possibly a terminal one hits a whole new level of the word tough. Growing up I saw first hand the struggles children who are extremely unwell go through as my twin brother was regularly under specialist care at Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital, so this charity is extremely close to my heart. The results of being poorly so young can be devastating with constant hospital visits, surgery, or severe health problems restricting if not completely taking away a child's right to play and explore, go to school and learn, and do all the normal fun things every child wants and deserves the chance to do.

But for every time mother nature messes up, there's someone out there doing some good, and remarkable organisations doing amazing things for others. I recently became aware of such an amazing charity that offer some much needed sunshine to the lives of very unwell children and their brothers and sisters who we mustn't forget suffer too.

Post pals is a charity run by sick children - for sick children where anyone can send a post pal a card, letter or a small gift in the post. Simple as that, but so so effective. Remember how exciting it was as a kid to receive something in the mail? I know that I still love receiving cards and sweet letters from friends in the post! Why wouldn't you want to get involved? All it costs is the price of a stamp, but to the child receiving it, I'm sure it gives them so much happiness, and most importantly puts a smile on their face for a while.

You can find all the information you need on the website:

  1. What a great idea, I will check into it and I have some cards that would be perfect. I can just imagine a child getting something from all the way over here. I really need to get it together and make some cards with Samson on them too. I know kids would love to see his smiley furry face. Take care, my friend.

    1. Yes getting something all the way from the Canyon would be extra exciting for a child, and Samson always guarantees to make anyone smile!

  2. Amazing idea!!

  3. this is a great idea for a child

  4. Thanks for sharing with amazing charity with us

  5. Guess what, we're so many hours behind you and Russia too, plus they have to show it in prime time as they call it here, that's in the evening hours, so we haven't seen the opening ceremonies yet. And, since I lived in London for a couple of years when I was young, I am pretty good with the accents. I can still tell a few of them apart, but when I lived there I was really good at it.

  6. I wasn't aware of this organisation but I shall be telling my friends about it. ANYONE can send a card, and give a child the chance to smile their beautiful smile.

  7. What a brilliant idea. Money always helps but that's not the only thing that can bring a smile to someone's face. I still enjoy getting letters the old fashioned way and it's still exciting when you don't know who it's from.

    I must do my best to check out their website later.
