We ask people to log on to send the children featured on our website ‘happy post’. When a child is very ill, often a visit from the postman can make their day. A cheery card or letter can make them feel less alone and bring welcome distraction from what they go through each day. To see the difference happy post can make please watch this great video (link) To find out more about Post Pals, please log on to http://www.postpals.co.uk/ and have a look around the website.
To send a card to a child and brighten their day, please follow the 5 easy steps on the home page. Post Pals is sponsoring the card competition at Dare U 2 this week. To enter, we ask that you choose a Pal on the website and make a card for them. Please post a photo to your blog of the card and say which pal it’s for then link us to it. Here is the most important bit though… please then post the card to the address on your chosen child’s page. Please also remember to fill out the stats page (link to this is on the 5 easy steps) so we can see the card has been sent. The reason we’re sponsoring this challenge is to create more awareness of Post Pals and increase the amount of
cards that are sent to the children to brighten their days. We look forward to seeing your creations!”
