Touch of Sparkle has now reached a very special milestone and recently donated its 1000th care pack after being launched just over two years ago thanks to the founder of Touch of Sparkle (Melanie Hersey) and the help of campaign’s supporters.
Touch of Sparkle is a campaign run by Adam Lambert fans who help provide care packs to male and female cancer patients, including special batches for the children’s ward as well as emergency overnight packs to parents of children staying overnight at the Addenbrooke’s Hospital. In order to help the campaign strive, Adam Lambert fans from around the world donate items that are featured in the care packs, as well as sending out donations and spreading awareness about Touch of Sparkle.
The idea is to spread a little care and humanity and try to lighten the load for patients undergoing chemotherapy, radiotherapy or surgery for cancer. The packages include:
- Practical items (bed socks, tissues, restaurant voucher, sweets, herbal tea for anti-sickness)
- Distractions (puzzle book, notebook, pen, earphones, playing cards)
- Pamper items (nail varnish, moisturizer, lip balm)
The next target is to reach the £6000 mark after raising £5545 so far. If you’d like to help keep Touch of Sparkle going and put a smile on someone’s face, you can visit:
The items are packaged and delivered to cancer patients at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge, UK. The project is run in aid of the Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust.
