Christmas is all about loving and giving. On 8 December 2012, more than 100 CRS beneficiaries together with their siblings, had a fun time shopping at Vivo City Toys’R'Us. The children were given a special mission – they were tasked to shop for a special gift for their new paired pal from CRS.
To help the children with their assigned mission, each child was paired with a volunteer. The children were also given time to break the ice and get to know their new found pal better. After shopping for about 2 hours, the children together with their volunteers, headed to Earle Swensen’s for a sumptuous lunch.
Close up magicians and balloon sculptors from Ngee Ann Polytechnic were invited to perform for the children. After lunch, the most anticipated moment arrived when the children were told to exchange their gifts. Other than receiving gifts, the children also had a fun time bonding with their volunteers and new friends. This event was made possible by kind sponsors and volunteers who took time off from their daily routines to help out at this Christmas event.
