Charity Toy House

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.



More about the fund: http://www.sph.com.sg/news/latest/files/child_aid_factsheet.pdf

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/
