Make a Difference

I found this site via my friend, Andy of the Black Bus. It's a charity called Post Pals.

5 Easy Steps to Brighten a Sick Child's Day

  1. Click on a child's face or select "Find Pals"
  2. Read their page (each child has one page)
  3. Write a card, letter, Email, sign their guestbook or even send a gift to the child and post it to the address on their page (NB this is not the child's home address, but a forwarding one). Please don't expect a reply.
  4. NEW Report post sent on our stats page

  5. Sit back and know that a child is smiling because of YOU.

Thank you, from everyone at Post Pals.

If you're not British... why not see what your country does to cheer up sick children?

Hi Hayden
I love the idea of of the post pals.

As for the swan... the funny thing is it was a really grotty area. A little layby near a rather gloomy pond where people had left lots of litter, sad to say. But perhaps that makes finding such a beautiful bird there all the more magical? ;-)

I think it's a great idea. :-)
