A few days ago I was asked by a young woman via Facebook if I would be willing to contribute some Christmas cards to her charity.
Philippa is trying to raise 500 handmade cards that she can send to elderly people who have no one to share Christmas with.
These are lonely people and the card may be the only contact that they have with others over the festive period.
The only commitment from you is to make a few cards and write inside the card a little about yourself for the recipient to read
It is not a lot to ask. Just a card with a bit of chat inside ... in an envelope and a bit of postage from you can make someone smile
The charity is called Festive Friends and if you would like to know more then click the link to read about it.
Now I told Phillippa that I would send her some of my cards and .... I also said that all you lovely people out there would help too .... because I know how warm and generous you all are
So please help me to live up to my promise and send her some of the cards that you have extra and are sitting in your craft room doing nothing.
The cards need to be sent soon so that they can then be sent out to the people that need them by Philippa at the appropraite time ... and the link will give you all the information and the address to send the cards to and tell you what you need to do
Would you please also tell Phillippa ... in a little added note that you are from Flowers Ribbons and Pearls and then she can tell us how many cards we have contributed between us.
More tomorrow ...
