Please Join Our Happy Mail Challenge :)

This week our challenge for you is to make a card or project for a sick child. We all know how GREAT it feels to get happy mail for no reason, so imagine how a child who is ill would feel to get happy mail....I can just imagine the BIG GRIN on their little faces!! It will bring such happiness to them, so we thought we would support Post Pals and Make a Child Smile and get some cards to those children who could use a "hug"!!!


Today's featured guest designer is POPPET. Poppet is incredibly talented and an amazing woman! She is very familiar with Post Pals as 2 of her 3 children are members. On her blog, there is a video made by BBC, called Samara's story - it is very moving. If you have a minute, please watch it, but make sure you have a tissue handy!!!! Here is what Poppet wrote to us:
Diese Woche haben wir wieder ein besonderes Thema für Euch:

Es soll eine Karte für ein krankes Kind gemacht werden.
Wir haben uns entschlossen unsere Karten an eine Instution wie zB:

zu senden.

Außerdem haben wir heut auch wieder einen Gast dabei:

Ezen a héten is egy különleges kihívással várunk benneteket, témája:
Beteg gyermekek részére szeretnénk ha készítenétek kártyákat!
Arra gondoltunk, hogy ezeket a kártyákat elküldjük két intézménynek, a
POST PALS-nak és a MAKE A CHILD SMILE-nak, hogy egy kis boldogságot csaljunk a gyermekek arcára!

Heti vendégünk POPPET.

What Post Pals means to me...

As you all know I have 3 children with brain damage, well I came across
Post Pals and decided I would join the youngest 2 children on there website and it has been the best thing we have ever done...The children get mail from all over the world and they have even received gifts also, this brings many smiles to their faces, all they used to get before was letters for hospital appointments and reports from specialists, so to receive a small card or letter just for them is really great...Even a poodle called Percy who has his own website writes letters to Teej, and he loves hearing about what Percy has been up to...Teej's operation what he had at Christmas did not work and his legs and arms are really stiff, he has to have physio and it can be really painful, have you ever watched your child cry in pain because you are hurting them, but at the same time know that if you do not do it they will not be able to move properly, well this is the time when the mail is most effective, I let him open them when I do this so that is has his mind taken off what I am doing....

And here is one of her gorgeous cards:
