Be Charitable and Share
"Love is not patronising and charity isn't about pity; it is about love. Charity and love are the same - with charity, you give love; so don't just give money but reach out your hand instead." This is an inspiring quote by Mother Theresa.
We would like to encourage our children to show love and care for the people around them, especially the needy, by taking part in fund raising activities. One of the fund raising activities planned is to collect newspapers and old clothes from blocks of flats in our neighbourhood and sell them. Our children distributed flyers to inform residents of the collection date. They also helped to carry the newspapers and old clothes back to the centre. The children also organised a mini fair together with game stalls, food stalls and craft stations for parent-child activities. Publicity flyers were distributed by the children together with students from Hougang Primary and Secondary School. Funds were raised through the sale of coupons. We also took part in Xin Yuan Community Care's annual flag day and met many generous donors. We also shared our happiness with the beneficiary by visiting the residents and spending time with them.
