A Charitable Spirit for Christmas 2012

Yes it's that time of the year again, even as the mood is a tad sombre compared to previous years.  Disasters apart, natural or manmade, let's not forget the more disadvantaged amongst us. 

For this year's Christmas drive to raise funds and awareness for the World Vision Singapore Life Changing Gifts program which purchases basic necessities for needy children in the Asia developing countries, I am pledging 50% of my holidays sales proceeds to the cause.  I do hope to be able to generate a decent donation this year, as escalating inflation appears to have made the individual catalogue items costlier than previous years: http://www.worldvision.org.sg/giftcatalogue

There is a great selection of art merchandise available that will make nice holiday gifts, so have fun browsing through my Etsy or Artfire shops, especially the colorful gift sets :)  For local customers, I have started a new ShopCity outlet with Singapore prices. Do use or quote coupon code: CHRWV12 for 20% off till 30 Nov.  Happy holidays shopping!

P.s. Drop by Public Garden's Christmas Fair on Sat 1 - Sun 2 Dec 2012, 1-7pm @ MICA Building.  I'd be sharing a booth there with fellow artist, Janet Chui.

PostScript: A BIG THANK YOU to all who supported the drive!  A total of S$196 (approx US$160) donation has been made to World Vision for 11 Life Savers/Urgent gift items to needy children in 10 developing countries :)  Have a blessed Christmas, everyone!
