....My, my, how time flies. Pretty soon Christmas will be on us, ringing in another new year. Yes, it will be a time of fun, happiness and joy as we say goodbye to 2014 and welcome 2015 with our families and friends.
Single parents and their kids too want to celebrate Christmas and the New Year but they do so with some measure of fear – fear because both Christmas and the New Year are the most expensive time of the year for them! Okay, perhaps they can do without the presents for Christmas but they do have to spend money preparing for the new year- for their school going kids.
And money is so hard to come by for these poor single parents, struggling with low income, high cost of living with no savings whatsoever. Yet, each new school year, every school going child needs at least 2 new school uniforms, school shoes, socks, school bag, stationery and possibly even a track suit. That’s not counting the workbooks and ‘fees’ schools impose these days on parents to offset the high costs of education.
Many of our single parents of all races therefore, struggle to find the means to give their kids these basic items each year and it is for this reason, we ask if you would like to partner us in sponsoring and buying a RM150 shopping voucher (Mydin or Tesco) so that some 100 to 200 of these poor children will be as nicely ‘uniformed’ as your own kids or grandkids.
Our Ho Ho Ho Santa too needs your help to get toys for the smaller toddlers and tots as well fun stuff for kids ranging from 3 years old to teenagers and if you do want to do more for the 50 or so hardcore poor single parents we’re inviting for our Christmas & Back-to-School party on December 20 2014, just buy some extra groceries when you go shopping next time and pass them to us.
We’ll put them in a goody bag for the parents and have our dear Santa hand the groceries, the shopping vouchers and the toys to the poor single parents and their kids. We reckon we’ll need around RM20,000 to RM30,000 for this event alone so every little bit on your part will help lots. You can be sure of generating heartfelt joy and happiness to the people who most need your help. If you can’t go out to buy the groceries, toys or the shopping vouchers just bank in your donation/chq to: Parents Without Partners Bhd account (Public bank account no: 3155836224) and SMS 016-2202958 once it’s done so that we’re aware of your contribution.
We sincerely thank you for your willingness to participate in bringing joy to our single parents and their little ones and we look forward to making this December 20 party a lovely experience for all.
