A Year 6 Beaconhills student has started her own campaign to help brighten the day of people living with cancer.

Charli, who is at the Berwick Campus, is encouraging students to design a card and write a short positive message of kindness or inspiration to the recipient. Charli and her mum then plan to deliver the cards to oncology wards at hospitals such as Berwick’s St John of God.

Anyone who wants to contribute a card can drop them in a box Charli has waiting at the Beaconhills College Berwick Campus library. She has also launched her own Instagram account where she will post some of the messages @charliscardsforcancer

Charli said she came up with the idea for her cards because she just wanted to help cheer up people undergoing cancer treatment. And like many families, her family has also been touched by cancer.

“My grandpa passed away from cancer. I was very close to my grandpa,” she said.
