Does anyone have a famous friend to help cheer up some seriously ill children?

15 replies 2K views
The charity Post Pals is holding frequent online Zoom sessions for seriously ill children and their siblings who have been stuck at home since Feb (most families pulled their kids out of school early). Last week Fearne Cotton held a drawing session with the kids, other weeks they have to make do with me holding dolls tea parties or Lego parties! I wondered if anyone had a famous or talented friend who might be able to volunteer an hour as a one off? Anything from a Minecraft Youtuber who can chat Minecraft and have kids share their favourite Minecraft creations to a singer/musician who can get the kids creating some music together from their living rooms and hospital wards, or a talent show judge who kids can do a short little performance for. The idea was just to give the kids some social contact but we have actually seen the kids grow in confidence when they have their art work or Lego praises.  We have a huge age range and abilities range but even the kids who aren’t able to physically take part still enjoy the sessions, our Pal Lewis had his nurse draw Fearne’s sea creatures, aliens and a butterfly 😃 So far we have had a few Lego parties with a side in designing lush bath bombs for those who didn’t have Lego, dolls/ponies tea party, meet my pet, show and tell and drawing.

thank you!
