HallieDaily 's Thoughts:

Got a letter in the mailbox a few days ago from somebody calling himself/herself “Neighborhood Volunteer.” The title in the letter is: “Help give hope to a child with leukemia.” It was asking for support for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, a charity that helps children with leukemia and other blood cancers.

After reading the mail, I learned that every 10 minutes a child or adult is expected to die from blood cancers, and Leukemia & Lymphoma are the leading cause of death among children. All the donated money will help support patient services in the community and across America, and it will fund vitally important research that is searching for new treatments and cures for all blood cancers including leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma. That will help people all around the world.

After becoming a Mom, I realize how important for parents to have a healthy kid, and how important for parents to get support when their kids need medical support. About 10 years ago, I knew a co-worker’s daughter, she was only 12 years old when they found out she had blood cancer. Although the whole company/society community donated money for supporting her, the poor girl didn’t make it to the end, and she was the only child my co-worker had. It’s a sad story. Thanks to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, children and adults with blood cancers have more hope than ever of surviving cancer.

Not only are we going to help with a donation, but we will always support all the charities who really care about the future—our children. We love our son, from the bottoms of our hearts!

Indeed, in our daily life, we are doing every little thing for lots of good charities. In addition to giving money, we donate the clothing/shoes/furniture we don’t use anymore; we buy things from thrift stores, not only because it costs only little money, but for the charity cause also (for me, at least). We go to animal shelter to bring a dog/kitty home to save their lives, and give them a Home. We go to church and donate money for God’s sake, and we make sure Red Bear buys toys to give to less fortunate little children through the Toys for Tots charity. They say, “It’s better to give than to receive,” and it really feels that way!

One fun way to support charity and to enjoy your “passion for fashion” at the same time is to donate our useless clothes/shoes and to shop for vintage clothes at a thrift shop operated by a good charity . Some of my favorite thrift shops here in California are those run by the National Council of Jewish Women. Rescue Mission, Salvation Army, and Goodwill. These shops use their proceeds to support the good work of their charities.

This is the entry to the Chictopia’s Week of Giving. I hope you can join me here too!
