Yay. I had an opportunity to turn my passion into a FUN/Fundraising event here in Singapore.
It’s wonderful that you can have a fun event and raise funds at the same time.
The experience was humbling, rewarding, joyful, exhausting, and just wow.
I’d like to thank Ate April, Joy, Michelle and my brother for their support in making my fundraising project happen.
Allow me to introduce you to my new passion. Tadaaaan, handmade accessories!
I always have a thing for “BOHO Chic” designs. Bohemian styles simply look “timeless” no matter the decade…or let’s just say an accepted fashion trend of any given period. I can assure you that 50 years from now, my designs won’t look “pre historic” at all. Gahaha 😛
Five weeks before the bazaar sked, I started waving my magic wand creating these sweet little pieces. I literally had zero after-work happenings and used my valid weekend-party-excuse-coupons for those five straight weeks. Letter E for Effort.
All at insanely affordable prices….glad the people enjoyed shopping for charity.
What did I learn from this experience?
Today I received an unexpected gift….one that did not come wrapped in fancy paper.
It’s a gift from the people who has made a positive difference in my life. Modesty aside,
The opportunity to make a profound difference in a child’s life is the best gift I could receive.
My child, Mergito, Happy one year to you and me. I will see you soon 🙂 I know this doesn’t make me a superhero, it’s enough that I’m given a chance to put an additional rainbow in your life. Thank you for touching my heart, it has grown so strong and happy. Thank you for your letters and drawings, they remind me of my life experiences.
Happy tears 🙂 🙂 🙂
Life is not a race, it really is about the journey.
Work hard. Travel hard. Live well. GIVE back.
While the word charity means many different things to many different people, nevertheless, GIVING is always a good thing to do. If you’re considering “sponsoring a child”, do visit Save The Children website today. Put a smile on a child’s face and brighten up his future. A little help will go a long way. Happy Vibes 🙂
You don’t have to go to India. Calcutta is all around you.
We must find our own Calcutta. This is the hunger that you and I must find, it may be in our own home.
Maybe in our own family we have somebody who is feeling lonely, who is feeling sick, who is feeling worried.
Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do, but how much love we put in the action that we do. – Mother Teresa
People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.
Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.
Today I felt the sweetest embrace. I am so happy to receive a drawing from my sponsored child with his handwriting on it. Priceless!
My participation in Save The Children taught me a lot of things and the importance of “keeping in touch”.
Writing a letter is such a little thing (to most of us), but it really means so much to sponsored children.
They feel loved. This feeling of love grows each time a letter arrives in the mail for them. Financial assistance alone cannot create a loving relationship.
There are 4 things I always tell my child, whenever we exchange letters:
1. To believe in his dreams.
2. To always remember that God has a unique plan for him.
3. I love him and I am a part of his life.
4. To always be happy.
I’m going to definitely make it a point to write regularly to my angel in South Africa.
If you sponsor a child please take time out of your busy schedule to send an expression of love by keeping in touch.
Happy Happy Vibes 🙂
