Catching up with charity partner Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice

Yesterday I popped across to the very special place that is Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice. As part of our donation scheme, we regularly donate personalised hug-in-a-box gifts through our four charity partners. One of those partners is Bluebell Wood, a beautiful place which supports children with life shortening conditions and their families. Every month our wonderful Hug Donation Assistant Georgina designs 10 personalised hugs for children and families of Bluebell Wood.

It was really lovely to have the opportunity to catch up on how it’s all been working out. It was amazing to hear how well received the hugs have been and extra special to speak to one lovely mum personally.

Here at BearHugs, we love the idea of a ‘hug in a box.

BearHugs’ Chief Sender of Hugs, Faye says: "The idea for BearHugs first came about after I received an especially thoughtful package from a friend just when I needed it most."

In other words, a hug in a box!

“When you can't leave the house very often, anything arriving through the post takes on greater significance.  That little package completely turned my day around.”

Hug in a Mug... in a box!

As hot-drink fanatics, we’ve been using the phrase a hug in a mug as long as we can remember. Sometimes it’s the only way to describe the joy of a nice warm drink just when you need it. If you’re tired, cold, or just taking a moment to yourself, holding a nice warm cuppa is as good as it gets.
