Smile for ME is a wonderful charity founded in 2012 by Alice with the support of her marvellous team. Aiming to raise awareness, give support and most of all bring smiles to those affected by ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), Smile for ME sends thoughtful, cheery gift packages to people with ME who’ve been nominated by someone close to them. Living with what can be such a debilitating, difficult and isolating chronic illness, Smile for ME have found a super way to spread a little joy to those suffering with it.

The 11th - 17th June this year was carers’ week; a week in which all the amazing people caring for those with extra support needs can receive thanks and recognition for the fantastic help they provide. Smile for ME had the brilliant idea of using carers’ week as an opportunity to let ME sufferers say a big ‘thank you’ to their carers by nominating them to receive a treat. We were so honoured when Smile for ME chose to build a very special range of BearHugs for the occasion!

Smile for ME picked a fabulous range of gifts to pop into their BearHugs - from scented candles and cute, cuddly bears, to delicious biscuits, snacks, keyrings and books. We’re so glad that we were able to play a part in bringing a Smile and a Hug to such deserving people.
