Bring Sunshine {Mandela Day} 20 / 67 ways to change the world

As promised on Mandela Day 2013 (19.07.13), this is part of my series on their 67 suggested ways of changing the world. This one comes under the category of 'Help Out for Good Health':

20. Many terminally ill people have no one to speak to. Take a little time to have a chat and bring some sunshine into their lives.

This kind of ties in with yesterday's post about  volunteering at a hospice, as this seems like the natural place to do this, but you can also take time to visit terminally ill neighbours and friends at home. People often choose to go home to die as it is familiar and less clinical, but they are also often very lonely and sad during this time. Take the time to brighten their day by chatting to them, doing something practical like washing their hair, or just keeping them company for a while.
