Receiving my SmileforME package 

smile-for-me

A few weeks ago I had a package arrive in the post. I had no idea who it was from and it was all wrapped in pretty paper. When I opened it and found out that my friends Laura and Rachel had nominated me for a smile I was over the moon! I had heard about SmileforME through Instagram and twitter so I knew what they were all about.

My gifts were wrapped in pretty blue spotty paper and all wrapped in ribbon! The gifts that I received were all soo thoughtful and personalised to me.

Receiving my smile package didn’t only make me smile for the rest of that week but it also made me cry to know that there are people out there trying to bring happiness and joy to those of us who suffer from this debilitating illness. I can’t thank the two girls who run this charity enough for all of their hard work and commitment they have towards this fantastic charity even though they are both suffers from this awful illness.

I urge you all to go and check out their website, if you know one of your friends or family suffering from ME then why don’t you nominate them for a smile! There is a link below where you can also donate and fundraise for this amazing charity.

What is SmileforME? 

SmileforME is a registered charity for those who suffer from M.E (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis). It was founded by two teenagers who also suffer from this illness. The aim of the charity is to make people smile by sending out personalised presents to those with M.E and to also raise awareness and understanding for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. Living with M.E can cause suffers to become lonely and isolated which is why the charity SmileforME tries their best to alleviate the negative effects by sending out ‘smile treats’ and going the extra mile to make suffers smile and to make their lives a bit brighter. It shows that someone is thinking about them through a tough time and to show that people really do care, when you are unable to leave your bed or house for sometimes months and sometimes years at a time getting a package in the post can really give you a boost and give you a reason to smile.

To nominate someone for a personalised smile treat you need to fill out the nomination form which I have put the link to below.
