Do something special this Christmas...

This has nothing to do with cakes and baking at all but it's a lovely idea that I wanted to share with you.

Recently I came across a website called Post Pals. The idea is to send a card or small gift to brighten up the day of a seriously ill child or their siblings. It doesn't take you long to do and imagine making a poorly child smile just for a little while - well worth the price of a stamp! At BakerLou, we have already sent a gift box full of our hamper goodies to one family so we hope it was enjoyed!

At this time of year Post Pals have a number of extra special schemes to make these brave children feel just a bit better. You can volunteer to write to a child from every reindeer during the festive period or you can become an Elf and send a gift around the value of £15 to a child who will really appreciate it. You can find all the details of how to help HERE. 

As part of the reindeer scheme, I am writing to a little girl who unfortunately lost her sister to a form of cancer, I've given each reindeer their own personality and put in a small gift with each letter! I'm also volunteering for the Elf scheme and I know that lots more helpers are needed so if you have the time, please think about taking part.

Of course you don't have to send a gift - I know money is tight these days - but even sending a card lets families know that someone is thinking of them so if you have a few minutes to spare and a stamp hiding in your purse, please use those few minutes to put a smile on a child's face! ☺

Happy Christmas from BakerLou!
