Christmas is fast approaching and once again the MOMS Organization in my son's school will be selling pre owned goods. From house wares to clothes, shoes, perfumes and toys. Every year starting August we collect different stuff from the students. Things that they don't need at home but can be sold to raise funds to benefit two areas. One, the proceeds of the fund raising will be used for the improvement of my son's school and two, items will be sold at very low prices to the nearby depressed areas. Imagine shopping for items ranging from 50 pesos (that is about a dollar) and below. I personally price tagged the items, so buyers are of advantage to do their early Christmas shopping on October 25 and 26. The flea market venue will be located near the residence of the less fortunate ones so they can benefit buying something good as new for a very low price. Items are slightly used but it is a good way to shop these days, practical to do in these times of world wide economic crisis.
Christmas is the time of giving; this is the time when everyone feels joy despite the odds.
No matter how little we can give it is our tradition to express love on Christmas by giving.
The capable people even go to orphanages to distribute items such as milk, food, medicines, clothes and toys.
But over and above the material things, let us share our Love this Christmas and whisper to our loved ones how grateful we are to have them in our lives.
Have you gone Christmas shopping yet? Rushing could mean more expense, might as well plan and do make your shopping list.
Countdown ‘till Christmas starts now….
