An annual christmas pilgrimage..

Every year this time - it almost feels like an annual pilgrimage, I start a Christmas drive to raise funds and awareness for the World Vision Singapore Life Changing Gifts program where various items of need can be selected for children in the Asia developing countries. The amount can be as little as $12 to provide a warm blanket, $20 for a pair of winter boots, or a hygiene kit or food pack.  To me, these are necessities, yet they are wanting and dependant on donors. With the floods in the region this year, the urgency is even greater. It is cliche to say this but I think whatever little help here and there that can be done, please do. The catalogue will be available soon and contribution can be made directly at: http://www.worldvision.org.sg/giftcatalogue

For my part, $5 out of every $10 sales proceeds for the month of November will go to the kitty which I will then tally at the beginning of December to make the donation.  I am starting early this year so that the donation, as well as item deliveries, can be made in time before Christmas. And oh yah, use Coupon Code: CHRWV11 for a 20% or $5 discount for purchases from my Etsy or Artfire shops respectively during this period.

Enjoy the holiday shopping!

PostScript: A BIG THANK YOU to all who supported the Christmas Charity Promotion!  A total of S$282 (approx US$220) donation has been made to World Vision for 18 items including urgent/life savers gifts to needy children in 15 developing countries :)
