” It was brilliant, apart from the weather! I’d do it over and over again …”

We are all about Kindness

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

There has been much talk this week about kindness and its power. I want to add in my thoughts and observations.

When Ian and I set up It’s Good 2 Give over 9 years ago we wanted to create a charity that was centred around volunteering. All these years later and it is still at our core.

Ian and I volunteer our time to run the charity and the Ripple Retreat – we are surrounded by incredible people volunteering and/or donating and/or fundraising to support us. From the generosity of donors both individual and business who donate prizes or sponsor part of our and our fundraisers’ events to the incredible and loyal volunteer teams we have.

Just this week we had our snack team delivering treats to the parents and patients of ward 2 at Edinburgh’s Sick Kid’s Hospital on a daily basis, volunteers making up and delivering parent packs to Glasgow Children’s Hospital, a full team volunteering at an event that we were one of the benefitting charities, our incredible housekeeping volunteers at Ripple Retreat and the welcome volunteers ready to welcome our next family who stay.

If that doesn’t show kindness at its best, I don’t know what would. I am proud of all our volunteers and super grateful to each and every one of them.

I know how much the families on ward 2 appreciate our snack team and am sure those who stay at Ripple Retreat also appreciate the incredible efforts of those who helped fundraise or donated in other ways to create the retreat and those who help make it ready for every family every week.

Sometimes it is easy to forget all the folk in the background but it is important to recognise their efforts and kindness in helping – it is a wonderful choice they have made.

Let’s hear it for our volunteers!

More photos added soon (laptop playing up!)
