Raising a Smile for Northern Ireland Childrens Hospice

Raising a Smile is so worthwhile,
And took us ages to compile,
Lot's of cartoons, stories and rhymes,
(Lot's of local grammatical crimes).

So BUY THIS BOOK, it's parful funny,
And you'll help to raise some money
For Northern Ireland Children's Hospice,
A grand wee place for ill kids, so it is.


This book was Bowen's idea (Bowen is 8 years old).
With over 300 pages of silly verse, stories and illustrations, Raising a Smile is guaranteed to make you smile.

Northern Ireland only has one hospice for kids, and they really depend on donations to maintain the level of specialist care that these terminally ill kids require.

Last year this hospice cared for 232 children, and worked closely with 155 families who were bereaved. The hospice really makes a big difference to the quality of life of these families and their children.

All profits from this wee book are going to NI Children's Hospice, so you are helping a very important charity, and you get a funny book.
