Could you be a Christmas Angel? Action for M.E.’s Christmas Angels project – now in its sixth year – enables people with M.E. to send Christmas cards to each other via the Action for M.E. office. All it will cost you is the price of a card and a stamp.
If you would like to send or receive a card from someone with M.E. this Christmas, or know someone severely affected who would appreciate a card, please get in touch as soon as possible by email (including your name, address and post code) or by calling the office on 0117 927 9551. We will then contact you to let you know what to do next.
Britta, who took part in last year’s Christmas Angels project, got in touch to say:
“I know how isolating M.E. can be, especially around Christmas with so many extra demands and pressures, making everything that much harder for those of us with this awful illness. I wanted to send as many cards as I felt able, to reach those who might otherwise not be so lucky in getting many cards, especially if they are too ill to write them themselves. Thank you so much for putting your time into this scheme once again – it is wonderful and such a thoughtful thing to do.”
…and don’t forget your Action for M.E. Christmas cards!
You can order our cards online (just head to our shop and use the search term 'Christmas') and postage and packaging is included in the price. Each card says a little bit about M.E. and the work we do to support those affected by it.
