OPERATION TOY STORY
The Annexe Gallery is helping Roddy Teo to collect toys for a visit to paediatrics ward of UMMC hospital this Christmas, to be placed on the kids' beds before they awake.
Deadline: Sunday 19 Dec. Come look for a box that says "Operation Toy Story".
If you too would like to visit the hospital (or maybe more), please contact Roddy: http://www.facebook.com/arteo
Here is Roddy's personal message:
Hey hey! How are you doing?
I'm writing this note to ask for a little favour. You see, this Christmas, I won't be going back to KK, and I declined locum on that day ;o) so there will be some time for me to kill.
So this is what I'm thinking of doing, to visit some kids in the hospital and bringing them a little goody while they're asleep. The idea is to have them wake up to a surprise next to their pillows the next morning! No, this wouldn't be the first time I'm doing it, but this might be the first time you'll get involved! Now here's the exciting part. I will need some toys, those that are cluttered in your attics, those that are stashed away in your boxes. Or maybe those that are sitting at the foot of your bed and could be more glad to make other kids happy. The idea is to give them (the toys) another chance at love (sounds like ToyStory?)
We usually visit the wards where the kids are more sick, like the cancer ward, before distributing them to other wards. No one wants to spend this time of the year in the hospital, really. And saddest of all, this may be the last year for them too.
So how about that toys that you've been meaning to give away but never found an outlet to do so? Do give me a call, and I'll send my reindeer to come and collect from you ;o) or buzz me and we'll chat about what other things we can give to them.
Hope to hear from you soon ;o)
