Lockdown sensory gifts a big hit with befriender families

A small gesture can make a big difference. During the lockdown period, Amaze was thrilled to be able to deliver surprise sensory bags and craft boxes to befriender families, thanks to the generosity of Rosie Weldon (who provided the wonderful sensory bags) and Out of the Box Create (who gifted craft boxes).

The presents were a huge hit and we got such wonderful feedback, we just had to share some of it with you:

“Just wanted to say what a lovely gesture with the card and gifts! My daughter said she actually loves the squishy toys and will use them as fiddle toys when she gets anxious in class!”

“Omg I was soooo chuffed it made my day! Yesterday was a cr*ppy day and it really cheered us up. Thank you!!!!!”

 

The gifts ranged from soft animals and other fantastic stimulating sensory toys to the craft boxes featuring a box that became a tiny farm. These really were a great boost to local families during such challenging times.

“Just wanted to say what a lovely gesture with the card and gifts! My daughter said she actually loves the squishy toys and will use them as fiddle toys when she gets anxious in class!”

“I’ve been meaning to contact you for ages to say a HUGE thank you to you for lovely card and the sensory gifts for Izzy – these were very gratefully received and Izzy was thrilled! Really special and heartfelt. Your charity is amazing and I am touched by your kindness and support.”

We are so grateful for the donations that allowed us to make Amaze families this happy!
