Charities

Here are the cards which were sent to Vera Ling who organises a card drive called CARDS THAT CARE. We hope that many of you will join and help them to reach more nursing homes and spread more joy.


The holidays are about family, about kindness, and joy. The holidays are the times when many of the elderly who lives in nursing homes would really feel the loneliness or missing their family. Wouldn't it be awesome if we can bring a smile to their face & brighten their holiday season simply by sharing our love of card making? A simple gesture to let them know that they are not forgotten.

We all love making cards and what’s better than knowing our creations can bring a smile to others? We hope that many of you will help and join us in our effort to spread joy & cheer!

As much I as would like to send in more cards but because of the postage price I'm limited to send a certain amount only.




Every year Claire's' (this will be her last year in primary school) school participated in the contribution towards children who are living in Albania, Moldavie, Irak, Malawi, Kenia and Uganda. Children are advised to donate recyled or new things like toiletries, note books, pens, towels, combs, balloons and etc. All these are put into a shoebox which will be wrapped-up in a nice gift papers so that the children will receive them as a present!


Using some of the free papers from some magazines, I decorated a writing book's cover and made some mini bags.
The thought that when the children open their present it will bring them a smile on their faces made me happy!

Your cards are going to be so appreciated Lai-Yoke, especially coming all the way from overseas! (Mine are going in the post tomorrow). I love what your daughter is doing through the school, with your help of course!
