’tis the Season!
We love the season of giving.
The week before Christmas, our Crossroads team met with six major NGOs from across Hong Kong to distribute over 7,000 toys.
We were giving Barbie dolls, dinosaur trucks and colour-changing chameleons for those NGOs to distribute to young lives who otherwise, at Christmas, might miss out on the special treasures more easily affordable to others.
Recipients will include children whose families are on the economic edge of society, refugee kids, children whose parents are recovering from drug addiction or little ones whose parents have medical need and therefore little resource for life’s ‘extras’.
On Dec 20th., our team donned festive hats and opened our containers to distribute the toys.
7,000 young lives brightened just a little this Christmas!
