In the lead-up to our next virtual event, the ‘Teddy Bears’ Picnic’ on the 1st and 2nd May, the SMS Foundation has recently sent out approximately 300 Easter cards to every person on our UK membership with Smith-Magenis syndrome. Also included with the Easter cards was a written personal invitation for the virtual picnic event.
The aim was to reach as many members as possible within our SMS community, encouraging people to join in and connect with other families.
We were also very lucky to receive the eager help of SMS’er Lily Stevenson, who was in charge of labeling and stamps!
The Teddy Bears’ Picnic is scheduled over the course of the bank holiday weekend with relaxed family-friendly online activities that our community can dip in and out of. Some of the activities include the return of the Scavenger Hunt, by popular request, and a magic show by Magical Mayhem who have performed at previous conferences.
