CHARITY SALE FOR THE BENEFIT OF MOTHER’S CHOICE COMING UP!
It is time to start our English language blog and I would like to begin talking about Mother’s Choice, a charity founded in 1987 to address the problem of the alarming numbers of teenage crisis pregnancies terminating in late term abortions in China. Today this Charity, not only helps these teenage girls, but houses their babies until they are adopted, if that is their mother’s decision.
I came across this Charity when a Spanish friend of mine was given a beautiful two-year old Chinese boy in adoption. Another Canadian friend of mine mentioned she helped raise funds for Mother’s Choice. I was so taken by all the stories they shared with me that I decided to turn my son’s birthday party into a fund raising event where I gathered cash from The Penguin Bag Company, its employees and friends and family for them. Yesterday I went to take the first of the cheques for value HKD5,500 (around EUR550) to Mother’s Choice’s office and I was again so moved by the loving and caring environment they create for the babies that agreed to make available 200 penguin bags and organize a Charity Sale in Hong Kong with all the profits going to Mother’s Choice. It will take place at the end of November, just on time for those Christmas presents. So, you Hong Kong girls, stay tuned for information about the event!
