How about a bit of Christmas love and friendship right now?
This lockdown has been difficult for us all but for a lot of disabled people or people with chronic illnesses, it has proven even harder as our usual #lockdown has just become deeper. The loneliness of old has become even more stifling for some as the lockdown has become even more restrictive, preventing friends, family or carers from visiting us.
And if there’s anything we need right now, it’s a sense of community and a reminder that we’re not alone.
AD-We are working with Chronic Warrior Collective and some of our bloggers to promote their amazing FREE ‘Christmas in July’ card swap and run a special giveaway.
Which is why I’ve teamed up with some bloggers and businesses in the chronic illness bloggers community to help promote a great giveaway to celebrate Chronic Warrior Collectives FREE Christmas in July Spoonie card swap.
How does the card swap work?
Well, it’s really really simple. Sign up to send a physical or digital card (the latter is an option if you haven’t got a reliable post at the moment or can’t get to a post office) to a fellow spoonie and receive one back. It’s completely free, your match won’t get any identifying details and there are spoonies from 21 countries across the world joining up!
We hope to help the collective make this month the most successful yet but also help lots of readers and bloggers feel more connected. So why not sign up for free to brighten somebody’s day-and your own! Just click here to sign up and take part.
Signing up to the card service isn’t essential to enter the giveaway (We only want cards to be sent from those who really want to join in so it’s fair to the recipients) but we’d really love it if you did. Entering and sharing the giveaway not only helps us spread the word about this free event but gives you the chance of winning a prize and helps promote small businesses – all from bloggers in the chronic illness bloggers community.
Several bloggers have kindly also signed up to share this giveaway and you can also opt to follow them as an entry choice.
