I am calling upon all of you who have time to spare during the time you are all (hopefully) in ‘lockdown’ inside.
In order to keep my project active and to help the vulnerable in any way I can, I am starting ‘virtual visits to the vulnerable‘.
All this involves, is writing a card/letter introducing yourself and whatever else you’d like to include. YOU CAN ALSO EMAIL ME YOUR LETTERS TO: firstname.lastname@example.org AND I CAN PRINT THEM FOR YOU.
Once I have enough letters, I am going to send them to care/nursing homes, to be distributed – with a craft kit/novel/puzzle book etc. (i.e. something to do) – to the residents there who aren’t currently allowed visitors.
Any replies I receive will be sent directly back to you, and you can choose to continue contact with these people during the Coronavirus ‘lockdown’; to give those who are cut off from their families a) something to do, and b) a sense of being thought about.
I have set up a separate ‘JustGiving‘ page (https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/katiefant-coronavirus?utm_term=rpnMbnexy) for any donations, which will go towards postage (and return postage materials), as well as small ‘care kits’ which will include, as mentioned, art, crafts, books, puzzles etc. to help get those who need it most through this scary & lonely time.
PLEASE SEND ALL POST TO:
66 Bevendean Avenue
I hope to send all care parcels on the 1st April 2020 – the date that I also hope to release the content for the Easter competition so that I can include that with the letters wrote & parcels put together.
If you dont have time to handwrite and post a physical letter, you can fill in the form below with your message, and i will put it into a card on your behalf:
