Hello and welcome to October’s newsletter. Hope you have had the best month possible. October was a special month for us as we celebrated our Birthday. Smile For ME was founded in 2012 and became Registered Charity Number 1185760 on 11th October 2019. We can’t thank you enough for all your support over the years because without you it would not be possible to continue sending Smiles to those affected by ME. Thank you to those who have donated, fundraised, shown support or just left us a kind message, it means more than words can say ?

Bunting by Sunshine Makes and Bakes, Paper flowers by Handmade by Giorgia, Teddy bear by Handmade by Holly and Blondies by Bron’s Vegan Brownies. All shops run by ME/chronic illness sufferers.



12 Smiles were sent to both ME sufferers and carers of all ages this month. The items included in our Smiles change all the time as we personalise them to each person’s likes and interests. Some of the items included this month were cuddly toys, crystals, unicorn cake making set, coffee gift set, craft gift set, nail polish, lip gloss, cosy socks, gift vouchers, sweets and chocolate.

Smile of the month

Each month we ask on social media what has made you smile this month? We love hearing the responses and hope by sharing some of your smiles it can help others to find a smile too.

What’s made you smile this month?
