Help From Me To You send letters to people with cancer, as heard on episode 66 Open Me part 1 (and I hear from FMTY that since the episode, a lot of you have pitched in to write letters, which is excellent news!). Donate a letter or donate money at frommetoyouletters.co.uk.
There are a bunch of different rewards you can choose for them, too, from challenge coins and water bottles to life advice from The Memory Palace and audio production help from Criminal and Radio Diaries! And every donor in the US is entered into a draw to win tickets to PodCon 2019 to hang out with me, Roman Mars, Hrishikesh Hirway and an abundance of our podpals. Find out more about the fundraiser HERE.
If your giftee is in/near San Francisco, get them tickets to the all new Allusionist live show, debuting at SF Sketchfest on 25 January.
