Challenge 59

Happy Mail
Create a card to cheer someone up or make their day!

I received this email from Vikki, after reading this you might like to send your Happy Mail to one of the children at Post pals!

Hello, I read that you do card challenges and I wondered if you would consider doing a challenge with a twist.

I run
Post Pals, we feature seriously ill children (most have cancer or are going through transplants) and their siblings on our website and invite members of the public to log on from around the world and send a card to a child. The aim is to make the child smile, but we have found it also helps their self esteem and parents often open them with a child during a procedure to distract them.

At the moment we are helping 120 children but they aren't getting much post.

I was wondering if you would do a challenge, instead of people just scanning in their card for the theme but they actually make one for a Post Pal child and send it off.

I can't begin to tell you how much receiving a card means when your ill and isolated.

Thank you,


ps)You can see a video about what we do here
