This week our destination is London, Ontario, Canada. If you would like a destination for your card, how about sending it to Gypsy! Gypsy's story has been brought to our attention by fellow Teapotter Charlene (crystaldolphins). Gypsy has some pretty serious health issues which have resulted in his being confined to a wheelchair. Gypsy's real name is Alicide but his nicname is ‘Gypsy’. He lives in a long-term care facility in London, Ontario Canada, is challenged with his health, and unfortunately is confined to a wheelchair. He doesn’t have any family.

Charlene does not know Gypsy personally but found out about him through a good friend of hers who is assisting him with some difficult issues he is facing at this time. When she asked her friend how she felt about the Teapotters having a teaparty in honor of Gypsy, she was so touched! Gypsy will be so thrilled to receive your cards, and any messages or thoughts written inside! With no family, he will enjoy the support and attention from the teapotters. It will be like having a big ole family living all around the world offering their support and brightening his days!

Charlene has already sent him a couple of her own cards and has included enclosures of scripture that can be removed. She knows he will read and re-read any cards sent to him. Gypsy is very religious, has a very strong faith so scripture included would be appropriate and appreciated. If you do include a message please use a large font if typewritten or try to maybe print your hand written message.

Gypsy once enjoyed going to flea markets, loves hockey and wrestling as well as mechanical ‘stuff’ – specifically classic cars. He also loves food! Sadly, due to a situation with his wheelchair, he is unable to go outdoors. Let's bring the outdoors inside for Gypsy and while we are at it, let's bring some wonderful picnic food!

Feel free to address the inside of your card to Gypsy, but please address the envelope in his actual name. Here is the address:

Alicide Mailloux
Marion Villa LT Care Facility
Rm 209B
P.O. Box 5777, Stn B
200 College Ave.
London, ON
N6A 4V2

Thank you all from me and thank you from Charlene.
