Yesterday I spent ten minutes making Finley a letter from Santa on the NSPCC website
. Its a really great idea, by creating a cute letter for your child, and donating an amount of your choice, you can also help other children at Christmas. You can choose from a variety of templates, from Baby’s 1st Christmas which would make a nice little keepsake, to pictures for older children such Christmas Baking. I picked Magic Stardust for Finley as it looks like a Choo Choo and he’ll love that. You then get to personalise the letter with your child’s name, likes and a special friend. You can also mention how they have been good or what they have been achieving at this year. A lot of the options were a bit grown up for a two year old so I chose ‘playing nicely’ and hoped Father Christmas didn’t remember about the headlock incident….
You can then preview the letter and add a special message if you wish. If you create it over the next few days it will still arrive in time – double check the Royal Mail posting dates. I’m going to give Finley his on Christmas Eve.
Your donation covers the production and delivery of the letter and then goes towards helping vulnerable children.
- Donating £5 could buy paints to help a child who has been abused to express their feelings and begin to feel like themselves again
- Donating £12 could pay for three children to speak to a ChildLine counsellor.
- Donating £25 could pay for a trained practitioner to deliver one hour of support through the NSPCC helpline to adults worried about a child
Because Christmas is a time for children and every childhood is worth fighting for.
