I first heard about the excellent Post Pals on a show called Russell Howard’s good news.
It’s a way that you can help a terminally ill child to experience joy
Post Pals allows members of the public to log online at their own leisure and find a Pal. They write a simple letter, card and/or gift known as Posty to the Pal without expecting any kind of reply. Pals siblings may also require support, it can be hard when one family member receives a lot of the attention, so we have included the name and age of our Pals brothers and sisters for you to contact if you so wish, you may also wish to enclose a note to the parents.
Perhaps this Advent you might like to sign up and start sharing some joy with families that are facing great hardship
