The charity Action for M.E's Christmas Angel's project is now in it's 12 year! The project's aim is to send out Christmas cards to people with M.E/CFS through the Action for M.E office.
I first heard of the project when I was going through an inpatient stay on a specailist unit for people with severe M.E. Christmas has always been a hard time for me since becoming unwell as so much of the Christmas festivities I'm no longer able to cope with or participate in. This makes me feel even more isolated and heightens my depression at this time of year.
However receiving a few cards through the Christmas Angels project feels really special. The cards remind me that I'm not alone and that I'm being thought of at what is a difficult time of year. This is especially because a totally random stranger; often one who has M.E too has taken then time to participate in the project and write in a card and send it to Action for M.E to distribute out.
If you would like to volunteer and participate in the project, and/or if you have M.E yourself and would like to receive a Christmas Angel or you know of someone with M.E and would like to nominate them to receive a Christmas Angel fill in this form. If you have any queries you can contact Action for M.E on 0117 927 9551.
Once you have completed the form Action for M.E will be in touch to let you know what to do next.
All it takes to participate is price of a card and a stamp.
The deadline to participate is Monday 17th October.
