Make A Child Smile!

Yu Huei has kindly brought our attention to the website, Make a Child Smile. The Make A Child Smile Organization, also known as MACS, has been a source of support to children with chronic or life-threatening illnesses and their families. One of the many efforts featured on the website is How can you help Make A Child Smile??? It's as easy as 1, 2, 3!.

It is indeed that easy, a 3-simple-step operation as enumerated below:

1- Click on the children above
2- Read their story
3- Drop a card in the mail saying "Wish you well!!", "Praying for you!!", etc... Be creative, buy a cute card or make your own! You can also send a small gift along with your card if you wish!

All one needs is a compassion for humanity, kids especially, and a natural or acquired creative streak. Since wify has bountiful supplies of both as evidenced from her more than 25 years of dedicated service as an elementary school teacher, and her artistic leaning, she gladly undertook to make her own cards using arts materials accumulated over the years in the house.

Here they are, in no particular order, in trios. And she will hand over the completed cards to Yu Huei for onward transmission to the kids featured in the website.

Come on, you can do it too.

It is said that of all the facial expressions, smiling takes the least amount of muscles (hence, efforts). In keeping with the principles of simplicity, we are therefore born to smile. So is making another smile.
