We are a group of ninety-six small online business owners who - after seeing the harrowing pictures of the Syrian refugees - wanted to take action together to do something to help.

Together we each pledged a gift which will make up a whole year's worth of surprises for eight lucky winners.  The winners have now been chosen and their prizes will be sent out from next month.

Although the prizedraw is now over we are still happy to take donations - which will all go direct to The Red Cross.

To see what the surprise packages could include please search for any of these businesses on Facebook.  Please note that photos are for illustrative purposes only - and each business is only donating one prize, so the winners might not get the exact items pictured! Some businesses specialise in personalised items - so winners may be sent a gift voucher for their products.

We also have our own Facebook page -

The winners were drawn at random at 9pm on 23rd September 2015, and they have all been informed.

Huge thanks to Fran from Half Pint Home who came up with the original concept of "A Year Of Happy Post".
