i have found this wonderful website.
http://www.postpals.co.uk/

it is for cheering up the lives of seriously ill children, you can do this by writing a lette ror an email or having the kids draw pictures.

my son is in the process of being added to this site, as i know he will love to receive post, and it might cheer him up when he is feeling ill.

there is no commitment for this, they arent asking for money, just a few minutes of your time to think of someone else.

have a read and a cry (if your like me)

Are we supposed to get a reply? I sent a few emails but didn't hear anything
#29
Oh this is so sad. I will definitely find some time to do this. It worries me senseless about my children when I see these sad things. Makes my moans seem really trivial.

bumping up so more people can see

I don't think so

5 Easy Steps to Brighten a Sick Child's Day
1. Click on a Child's face or select "Find Pals"
Read their page (each child has one page)
Write a card, letter, Email, sign their guestbook or even send a gift to the child and post it to the address on their page (NB this is not the child's home address, but a forwarding one). Please don't expect a reply. NEW Report post sent on our
stats page

Sit back and know that a child is smiling because of YOU.
#32
This site has been around for ages...

:)
#33
i know it has but i only just found it and thought i would pass it on to others to spread the love.
#34
Its been around for 5 years as of this summer (although the site didnt go live until December)
banned#35
Brings tears to my eyes, i will try to get round to doing this soon :thumbsup:
#36
i know this is very old but apparently they are having a quiet period and not getting many letters for the kids. again if you can spare time to send a letter or card to a sick child, im sure they would appreciate it.
#37
noone
#38
bumping up
#39
i have just got some of my rainbows to make some pictures to send to some of the children having a hard time right now.

it doesnt have to cost to make a child smile.

it is also very humbling to read the site, i sat and cried and i have two poorly children.
#40
i shall have a look at this tomorrow as sounds interesting, my girlfriends brother has many problems himself, although would not appreciate the letters as such. But i also have an adopted down syndrome auntie who would have adored letters and pictures as she was growing up.
