Spreading love and joy
THE Christmas spirit is one of spreading love, generosity and joy; and what better way to celebrate this Christmas then by sharing it with deserving young ones.
The Gardens Mall recently hosted its annual Christmas Charity Celebration with 30 children and their caretakers from Rumah K.I.D.S.; a home for orphans and children who are abandoned, abused and neglected. These children are given shelter, love and care with an emphasis on strong “family setting” values with “brothers and sisters” and house parents.
The Gardens Mall, in collaboration with GSC Signature and Italiannies gladly organised a fun-filled afternoon for the children. The afternoon began the moment the children were dropped off at The Gardens Mall.
They were ushered to GSC Signature where they were given a hall all to themselves to watch the recently premiered, Thor: The Dark World. As the children eagerly waited for the movie to begin, they were served popcorn, chicken nuggets and drinks. To add to the excitement, the children also received merchandise from the movie, courtesy of GSC Signature.
The children were then brought to Italiannies where renowned mentalist David Lai and his team took turns demonstrating their mind-bending magic; everything from prestidigitation (sleight of hand) to forkbending. The children were left dazzled and entertained as they enjoyed the festive high tea sponsored by Italiannies.
True to the essence of the Christmas spirit, the evening concluded with goodie bags that were given out to the children, courtesy of supermarket chain Cold Storage.
IGB REIT The Gardens Mall chief executive officer Antony Barragry also presented a cheque worth RM10,000 to Grace Community Services as a gesture of care and support not only for this institution’s work at Rumah KIDS, but also for the other community services that they helped inspire.
