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.
