My First Charity Project

A few days ago, I learned a little something about Sharing Is Caring (from school).


When mummy asked me about the circular that she found in my bag, I told her excitedly "I am very lucky, you know. I have so many toys. Some children don't have. So we give some to them... etc."

Mummy suggested giving some of my soft toys away. I have way too many!


Mummy's cuties

Mummy was rather surprised by my generosity. Every item that she suggested giving away, I would nod approvingly and say YES. On the other hand, it was mummy who faced difficulty deciding which one to go. Most of these soft toys were collected by her over a span of more than two decades. Many of them had very sentimental value to her. Every item that I picked, mummy would say "No, this one cannot. Mummy bought this from a special place far, far away in New Zealand (and some from a few other countries). Or, this is an antique bear which belonged to Ah Ma when she was a child so cannot give away.. Or, this one cannot lah, Pakcik Joe (mummy's ex-colleague) gave this to mummy etc. Shame on her!

In the end, we picked these items "to go"...



Some soft toys, clothings that I've outgrown (some are almost new) , toys (including a box of imitation "Lego", some books and colour pencils (totally new)

This afternoon, when I came home from school after donating the stuff, I told mummy "I am not lucky anymore, you know. I gave some of my things away so I am not that lucky anymore". Hahaha!

I hope the children who receive my contribution will take really good care of them and enjoy playing/reading/wearing them as much as I did. I love those baby board books very much and would still flip them occasionally even until now. It is with a very heavy heart that I give them away...

  4. So generous of Chloe, deep inside her heart I can feel she is warm, empathy and caring!

    LOL... such ingenious dialogue, mommy should tell her, " The more you give, the more you get~!"(The Money Song's chorus) or perhaps, " The more you give, the luckier you are!";)

    Have a great weekend!

    I hope Yan Yan is like Chloe! Even things she doesn't want, she also not allow me to give to others.. A few times she saw me give some old stuff to our part time maid, she cry and asks back the stuff.. Paiseh the maid quickly gives me back the stuff..

  22. Funny la.... the part about Chloe being more willing to give up stuff compared to mummy. I think I'm like you too - I can be very sentimental when it comes to old clothes/toys/things as I associate them with a certain story/experience/time. I'll have a hard time giving away Elyssa's old stuff next time!

  23. The soft toy (dog with big nose) next to Pooh so cute lei.
    I can understand about sentiment and how to let go.
    Chloe has a very good nature...and to start cultivating these values in a child this young is wonderful!
