I have hand printed another batch of these charity cards for Manorlands who are in dire need of funds. They are on my website helenpeyton.com/product/charity-card-manorlands/ and I can assure you that all the money goes direct to the hospice!A big thank you to local printmaker and artist Helen Peyton, who is selling these hand printed letterpress cards to raise money for Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice.

The cards are printed using recycled materials and feature the statement: "Life’s not about surviving the storm, it’s about how you dance in the rain." 🌈

Reasons to be CheerfulIt often seems as if the world is going straight to Hell. I wake up in the morning, I look at the paper, and I say to myself, "Oh no!" Often I’m depressed for half the day. I imagine some of you feel the same.
Recently, I realized this isn’t helping. Nothing changes when you’re numb. So, as a kind of remedy, and possibly as a kind of therapy, I started collecting good news. Not schmaltzy, feel-good news, but stuff that reminded me, Hey, there's positive stuff going on! People are solving problems and it’s making a difference!

I began telling others about what I’d found. Their responses were encouraging, so I created a website called Reasons to be Cheerful and started writing. Later on, I realized I wanted to make the endeavor a bit more formal. So we got a team together and began commissioning stories from other writers and redesigned the website. Today, we’re relaunching Reasons to be Cheerful as an ongoing editorial project.

We’re telling stories that reveal that there are, in fact, a surprising number of reasons to feel cheerful -- that provide a more optimistic and, we believe, more accurate depiction of the world. We hope to balance out some of the amplified negativity and show that things might not be as bad as we think. Stop by whenever you need a reminder.
