A few weeks ago “P” and I along with baby NuNu linked up once again with fellow Helpmobers to do some good. The Free Help Guy had once again pulled off another clever helping event. We gathered at a location near London Bridge, under the instruction of bringing 5-10 things that we wouldn’t mind parting with. A few dresses and shirts, NuNu brought a few of her baby clothes that had gotten too small but barely worn. We were raising funds. We sold several items and in the end we were handed a brown envelope containing a letter, and a plastic bag holding a tenner and a 2 pound coin (our portion of the divided raised funds).
The letter had instructions on what to do next.
Armed with the letter and money we accepted the challenge. This is our Random Act of Kindness:
Since “Cocoa Loves The Kids”, I thought that it would only be fitting for us to give something to some very special little ones. We purchased big boxes of crayons, colouring books, word puzzles/books and took them over to the hospitalized children at St. Mary’s Hospital (London), Grand Union Children’s Ward. Grand Union Children’s Ward specializes in Bone Marrow transplants and treats children with infectious diseases, many of them on isolation.
It was all greatly appreciated. A big thanks to The Free Help Guy for helping us to help others!
