Christmas 2020 will be difficult for many people this year. I am a Covid-19 nurse and every day I see what loneliness and isolation does to people who have no one to talk to or who cares about them - no one to tell anything to at the end of the day. I want to share hope that we'll get through Covid-19 by looking out for each-other and some people need to be looked out for just a little bit more than others, especially with Christmas coming. I haven't set out to raise much money, but any money I do raise I will donate to Age UK, I just hope people might be kind enough to share what I hope to achieve and give just a little bit of their time to those who have no one and are most vulnerable and connect with them. A teddy bear is a beautiful gift to give to someone - it's such a special gift. A bear connects people to their childhood and to the special person who spent time and thought finding that person and that special teddy bear. All I ask is please let me have photographs of your teddy bears making a difference and your stories this Christmas so I can share them to this page and show we do care and that we are all in this together that no one should be alone this Christmas. If you would like to donate to help Age UK then you will be making someone's life so much happier. If you can help me achieve this wish please share your teddy bear pictures and stories to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and share this post and video to every one you know and enjoy the love and friendship you give and the love and joy you'll receive in return because it's priceless. Thank you and love Leona xx

About the fundraiser
All over Great Britain
I am a Covid-19 frontline nurse. I have seen what isolation does to people and so my mission is to do everything I can to prevent anyone from feeling alone, sad and isolated this Christmas when we are all pulling together to beat Covid-19.
