Food from the heart

I love that phrase below - 一份食物 一份愛心 (an item of food, an act of love), how beautiful.

My little girl's school organizes this charity event every year, which I truly support. Read more about the organisation here. It's great that we get to do this act of charity through them. There's also one at the end of the year where each child brings in a teddy bear as a donation and they will distribute them to the kids who are not as lucky as our children. In our every day life, we don't do much to help the poor, and we often are not aware that they are in our presence, so it's good that there are such events to remind us that there are poor people in our midst, people who cannot even afford necessities such as food. It helps to open our eyes to reality. And it teaches the kids at the same time.

Look at all the lovely posters that they prepared. It's a big event every year and something new for this year is the dance-a-thon sponsored by us parents, with the food that we donate. They were also given donation cards to get sponsors such as their grandparents, aunts and uncles, etc.

Have you done a worthy cause lately?
