Is giving to charity one of the to-dos for Christmas for you? In one of the shopping centres down in Orchard Road, Paragon, a Charity Toy House was set up in aid towards the Straits Times School Pocket Fund.
One could donate $20 into the box and go into the "house" and pick up a gift of your choice. The gifts are wrapped and they include animal-bags, scarves, wooden toys, blankets, pencils cases and height rulers. The nett proceeds go into the Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund.

Those living in Singapore, hurry down there and do something meaningful this Christmas :)
Those not living in Singapore, do you have something like that in your city?
Near where I live in the UK, children contribute a shoebox filled with presents for a school-age child in a poor country (so stationery, small toys) and these are sent to these children for Christmas day. See http://www.samaritanspurse.uk.com/occ/
No we don't but it's well done in my opinion.
Merry Christmas Keropok !!!!!!!!
I think this is a great idea.
