Well done St Peters! Your generosity is wonderful.
Earlier this quarter, I set a challenge of collection 80 Christmas gift parcels for the children who FAMSA (Families or South Africa) work with.
And you did it! You reached the target.
We collected 12 school bags (with school shoes) and another 68 shoeboxes filled with stationery, toiletries and toys.
Here are the pictures from the collections and the party:
The deadline day was 6 December to drop off all the collected parcels. That morning after packing and sorting we had reached 71 packages. I was thrilled! We had set a HIGH goal of 80.
I sent out “thank you and congratulation” messages. Because you all deserved it. Your generosity was incredible!
AND THEN – after that message, one of our members at St Peters messaged me saying that they would bring anoter 9 gifts so that we could reach our goal. Amen!
80 children were blessed by your kindess. Tose children matter. They have a future. They are loved. And our little actions of kindness, reminded them. They are worth it!
