Yours truly was over at Cheras LeisureMall to check out and also do my part at the Toy Bank, A Gift of Love Community Programme 2016 that was happening.
The Toy Bank, A Gift of Love is an annual Community Programme by Cheras LeisureMall with the intention of getting all visitors and shoppers at Cheras LeisureMall to do their part in giving to the needy during this Christmas season so that we can help bring smiles to some of the more than 600 children and mentally challenged adults from homes all over.
The list includes the Bodhi Homecare Cheras, Da Ci Jiang Tang, Desa Amal Jireh, Living Hope Global, Malaysia Lotus Charity Care Centre Association, Malaysian Association for the welfare of Mentally Challenged Children (IQ70plus), Persatuan Kebajikan Kanak-Kanak Cornerstone, Persatuan Penganut San Bao Gong KL & Sel, Pertubuhan Kebajikan Anak Yatim Mary KL, Pertubuhan Kebajikan Anak-anak Yatim Sayang KL & Sel, Pusat Penjagaan Kanak-kanak Cacat Taman Megah, Rainbow Home, Rumah Charis Children’s Home, Rumah Kanak-kanak Angels, Rumah Kanak-kanak Tengku Budriah, Rumah Sayangan, San Pedro Orphanage Home and Trinity Community Children’s Home.
Do visit the Toy Bank on the 1st floor where you will find the wishes’ of the kids/ mentally challenged people printed on the green and red cards, all hung up by the arcade of the Whimsical Christmas Garden.
All you can do is pick up a card, and gift the person on the card their wish…. Do include a warm message on the wishing card as a word of encouragement as that can elevate and inspire the children and deposit the gift and card to the Toy Bank. These gifts of love will be then be collected and all delivered to the hands of the children by the mall management team after the end of the collection period.
Toy Bank, A Gift of Love Community Programme 2016
Date: 2nd Dec 2016 to 27th Dec 2016
Venue: 1st Floor , Cheras LeisureMall
My daughter and I got one of the kids a pair of shoes…. And deposited it in the Toy Bank as our offering…
We also got to share in the celebration recently on the 3rd December 2016, where 170 children from the participating homes enjoyed a special screening of the latest Disney movie, ‘Moana’ by Golden Screen Cinemas, before being treated to a spectacular show of Titan the Robot which had been brought down all the way from the UK.
It was the first time I saw a real life Robot, other then Transformers which were more of people in suits and the first time Titan the Robot made his appearance here in Malaysia at the Cheras LeisureMall….
Titan the Robot is funny and I was pretty impressed that it can even dance, sing, strut his stuff and even sneeze…..! It is no wonder Titan The Robot has worked with Jackie Chan, Will Smith and even Rihanna as well as other celebrities….
We were then treated to a delicious lunch, Santa Claus and Santarina’s appearance, interesting dances and Christmas Carol performances making it a memorable pre-Christmas celebration for everyone present……
So, for those of you who are staying around Cheras or visiting friends and family there, drop by and do your part in donating a small gift or two to the Toy Bank, A Gift of Love Community Programme 2016 at the Cheras LeisureMall
