    Default Make a little boy smile

    I've just seen this on another forum that I'm a member of and thought I'd share it here, it's not asking for money, or time or any form of commitment, just a little postcard to make a poorly boy smile which I figured would be ok by the mods?..

    Hi everyone : I was just hoping I could get your help with something. Some friends of a friend have found out that their 4 year old son, Charlie, is suffering from a terminal brain tumour, and has only a few months to live. The family’s top priority is to make Charlie’s last days as memorable as possible. One of the things Charlie absolutely loves is receiving post, and he always rushes out to collect the post each morning. As such, his parents have started a postcard campaign, and are asking as many people as possible to send a postcard to Charlie, with just a simple, cheerful message on it. (Please do not mention his illness or include get well wishes.) If you are able to do this, it would really make a difference for Charlie and would be a great help and support for his parents during this difficult time.

    Dave, although this is a nice sentiment, I've checked to confirm that this is genuine and not one of the usual FB hoaxes, I know it may be cynical of me but thats the way i am when every time I log on to facebook there's a horrible sob story that someone has recycled time and time again ending up as a rumour someones started because their bored.

    I've since found more than a couple of websites stating that the family have been completely inundated with mail up to the point that it is now a hindrance and have requested that the appeal stops. It wasn't thier wish to allow it out to the masses in the first place.

    Since posting this I've also seen that the family never realised that the initial request would go viral and are actually pleading with people to stop sending postcards.

    Sorry if this seems likes bit of a damp squib. Wasn't spozed to be.

    Didn't realise it had got round this much. He lives a couple of doors down from me and went to pre-school with my daughter. They did say that they had received loads of post which although Charlie loved it, it was becoming a problem. Our Diamond Jubilee street party is to raise money for him.
    Thanks for the sentiments, proves there are nice people out there
