DARCH resident Naomi Lambert is raising funds for Motor Neurone Disease Australia through The Cool to be Kind Project.
Mrs Lambert started the project to spread kindness in November 2017.
“I decided to create small kindness cards, which I then hid around my hometown of Perth,” she said.
“With no expectation of response, I was gobsmacked when I received 32 responses after hiding 50 cards.”
This Christmas, she reflects on the past year and the pain of seeing a close family member battling motor neurone disease.
“It is such a devastating and debilitating illness,” she said.
“To not have access to treatment and to see someone suffer and lose independence is heartbreaking.
“It’s so hard to literally watch someone you love die and not being able to do anything about it.
“I can’t change this situation but I can help to hopefully find a cure (and) use the publicity I have received this year in a positive way.
“I love the thought of people hiding cards in various places around the globe but it has also become a platform for being able to help fundraise for motor neurone disease.”
Part-proceeds from sales will be donated to Motor Neurone Disease Australia.Packs of seven to 60 cards range in price from $6.95 to $22.95, and donations will vary between 50 cents and $2 per pack.
