There’s another way to help Sendong victims thru shopping! @UkayAlalay
To my understanding, this is being managed by Saab Magalona but there are many celebrities and friends who are donating clothes for the cause. Selling pre-loved clothes/bags/shoes owned by celebrities (mostly) DOES prove to be a great way of generating funds. And boy, do they sell out fast!
What a great way to give (and also receive) noh?
I get teary-eyed when seeing the aftermath video clips of Sendong. I’ve always wondered how they’ll fare this holiday season. I have already donated cash but it seemed too small for the damage. I’m not rich and this is not loose change for me. but at least thru buying, I could somewhat justify giving more.
I bought a gift for Xy early this morning. Had to camp in the office just so we can go to the store early. I withdrew money thinking it would buy me two pieces, one for him and one for me. But to our misfortune, the prices were higher than what we were told. So I just bought his.
I was seriously contemplating to go back again and buy myself another one. I really liked the pink one. But then I had no sleep so my judgment was a little clouded. I decided to sleep first and then decide whether I should buy a present for myself.
Upon waking up, it was clear. I have already spent so much on “presents for myself” that I could no longer find it realistic and practical to buy myself one more. With the money I’d use to buy myself one, I’ll be able to buy gifts for people I haven’t yet.
Christmas gift count to other people: 1 Christmas gift count for myself: Plenty, in shoes alone, I already bought 4 :(
P.S. I have not told him yet what it is so I won’t write it here either.
