Postpals charity thread. Make a poorly child smile today by sending a card or something in the post - it's that simple.

Posted 5th Jan 2013
I have been telling people about the charity postpals, which is a very simple idea - people sending cards or a little something nice in the post to poorly children to make them smile and make their days a little brighter.

The charity has a website with the profiles of the children with a photo of each child and details such as birthday, their brothers and sisters, likes, dislikes, interests, hobbies, favourite colour etc and an address to send the post to.

It can be a card, a postcard, a letter, a picture drawn by your children, a little treat like a bottle of bubbles, bracelet, stickers, nail varnish, aeroplanes - anything suitable is perfect for sending.

The children range in ages and levels of disability and these are explained in the profiles.

Write a card, stick a stamp on the envelope, send it to the child, and bring a smile to their face, and that of their family.

It makes a big difference to receive some post when you're poorly, and doesn't take long!
