Last year ParcelHero had 24 bloggers, artist and crafter’s from around the world to decorate a wooden box anyway they wanted and they were then auctioned off to raise money for Oxfam. ParcelHero are doing the #PHWinterWorkshop again this year, will all the money raised going to Great Ormond Street Hospital. I am one of the bloggers that has decorated a box and helping raise money.
GOSH (Great Ormond Street Hospital) is a charity I already support by making a donation every month. And it is one close to my heart. My 3-year-old nephew, Morgan, was diagnosed with a brain tumour and a spinal tumour last year. He currently receives treatment at The Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham. The type of tumour he has is very rare and even the doctors that specialise in brain tumours are stumped on how best to treat Morgan. And to be quite frank, they have no idea what to do with him, as what he has is that rare. So he may have to go to another hospital for further investigation, and it maybe GOSH that he has to go to.
So anyway, All the boxes are being auctioned off individually on ebay. You can see my box here. At the time of writing this, it is currently going for £5.50 will bids ending in 4 days time. I would love for it to go for a lot more than this as every penny counts when it’s for poorly children. So I would love it if you could bid or just share the listing around with friends and on social media. The more shares the better!
For my box I went with pretty green Christmas paper and a cute button tree ( I just love buttons). And on the inside I painted it a lovely gold and added 10 glittery gold stars tree decorations that I made myself from salt dough.
What do you think of my decorated box? Have you looked at the other boxes yet?
