hello!

does anyone know of any charities in Europe (I'm British and live in France, but any charities outside of there are welcome too) that would like any crafts donated? I have tried looking on google and on here, but can't find any  Undecided

mods - if this is in the wrong part of the forum - feel free to move and sorry for the boob  Roll Eyes

I don't know if its quite what your looking for but post pals (http://www.postpals.co.uk/) is a site where you can find children with severe illnesses and you can choose a child(or children) to send something to. You are only required to send a card but many people also send packages. It can be a one off thing or you could keep sending to the same child. There is a lot of information on each page about the childs illness/likes/dislikes/siblings etc. which mean you could put together a really meaningful package. Hope this helps Cheesy

Also as a UK person I would be really interested to find some charities to support.

This post has inspired me to look around a bit more and I've found this UK site (http://www.lovinghands.org.uk/index.html) which seems to have a lot of good projects and links on it. Again, hope this helps.
