The Little Yellow Duck Project is becoming one of the most important life saving projects in the world. We have duckulated more than half the world now with 10,539 ducks being logged. As our members are aware, that means more than 40,000 ducks have been left to make people smile and to save, improve and extend the lives of some wonderful, grateful strangers.
Today the map was updated with 15 more ducks including one that was left at The Ultrasound waiting room at Countess of Chester Hospital, Chester in Greater Manchester, UK. The comment from Carolyn, the finder of Hope63 was heart warming.
“My husband lost his Dad just 2 days ago and this little act of
kindness gave us a smile, we saw it as a sign that he’s OK up there in
heaven. Thank you Hen 63, we’ll treasure this little duck forever xx”
We also had an email from Jennifer Barlow, the post transplant sister at Royal Preston Hospital. The Little Yellow Duck Project has been chosen to be highlighted for World Kidney Day, March 14. There will be a fun run and all the runners, 80 last year, will be given our little ducks to distribute on the route through the lovely town of Oswaldtwistle in Lancashire.
Some of our wonderful duck makers have pledged to send ducks to Jennifer. We have such an amazing family of duck makers committed to the cause.
I am looking forward to seeing photographs of the day.
