Cards for Bravery are looking for sponsorship to support their charity as they aim to improve the lives of hospitalised children.


Cards for Bravery is a charity dedicated to brightening the days of hospitalised and seriously ill children and their families. These children and young people tend to be admitted to hospitals, hospices, CAMHS units or being cared for at home. We provide a range of services, from the distribution of positive handmade cards, bravery packages, activity packs and more. Something as simple as a handmade greeting card can really help brighten the day of a young person going through a rough time.

Katie Callaghan founded Cards for Bravery at 13 years old in 2015 during a long hospital admission after her best friend gave her a card that brightened her day. This sparked the idea to create handmade cards for the other patients in her ward. Katie lives with multiple chronic health issues and has first-hand experience of what it is like to be hospitalised as a young person, and was wanting to help others in a similar situation as her.

Beginning with distribution in one hospital, Cards for Bravery has since grown to working with over 25 hospitals, CAMHS Units and hospices to deliver a range of services to children across the UK. So far, they have distributed over 20,000 handmade cards to hospitalised and seriously ill children. The charity has expanded over the years and has recently gained charity status.

We are looking for sponsors that would like to help us in our mission to improve the lives of hospitalised and seriously ill children across the United Kingdom.
