Wish you Were Here campaign launched
HERE at Revitalise we have a bit of a mystery on our hands and I would like to tell your readers why we need their help to solve it…
For many of us, the simplicity of being able to hop onto a flight and get away is something we do without a thought. But living with a disability can make things far more complicated and organising even the shortest of breaks can become a logistical and financial struggle.
I work for Revitalise, an incredible national charity that provides respite holidays for disabled people and carers, so we know just how important holidays are.
That’s why we’ve launched ‘Wish You Were Here’ - a campaign designed to shine a light on the reasons why taking a break is so important, particularly for disabled people and carers who cannot always take time away.
We’ve invited a glittering array of celebrities to send us a doodle or some words about a treasured holiday memory on a bespoke postcard. We’ve already received signed contributions from stars such as Sir Ian McKellen, Emma Thompson, Christopher Eccleston, Warwick Davis and Zoe Wanamaker CBE to name but a few.
But there are five postcards that have been left unsigned by mystery artists and we’re appealing for them to come forward and claim their creations. We’re also inviting your readers to join in the conversation with us on social media and share their best guesses using the hashtag #whosedoodle.
To view the mystery postcards visit our website: www.revitalise.org.uk and why not tell us who you think doodled them on Facebook: www.facebook.com/revitalisecharity/ or Twitter: @RevitaliseNow. Stephanie Stone, Revitalise
