Post pals is a charity dedicated to making sick children smile.
Their website is www.postpals.co.uk where you can find information about all the pals and their siblings. By sending a card, letter, gift or email to a child you know that you have brightened the day of a seriously ill child or their sibling.
Gifts don’t need to be expensive. Once Vikki (who set up post pals) sent some confetti stars to a young child who was screaming through her chemo and nothing they were trying would calm her down. They gave her some post to open and when she opened her card some confetti stars tumbled out. She stopped crying and started making pretty patterns with them.
Maybe next time you go on holiday you could take a minute to send a postcard to a child. They love to receive post from all over the world and you can sit back and know you have created a smile.
