giving and feeding
Christmas is once again around the corner and what better time to take out the old toys to be given to children who will be very happy to have something new to play with.
This is the first time I’ve joined the One Way Bike Club in their annual Christmas project since I’ve been inducted to the club last year, but it is not my first Christmas giving activity, and definitely not the last.
Toys, both old and new, contributed by club members and also from Worlds Apart -One Heart, a US-based non-profit charity organization headed by my very good friend Rose Hankins.
Aside from the giving, there is also feeding. Club members spare time from their busy schedules to personally prepare the food for the school children.
Classes go on while everybody is busy outside. Today’s subject is Reading.
There’s a saying about having too many chefs but this is an exception.
Gift picking time. The children line up and choose whichever toy they want from the lot. There were lots of happy faces that day.
It has to be the red fire truck.

I think they liked the food. I did too.
I didn’t know that joining this bike club wasn’t only about the biking, and for sure I’ll be in this for the long ride.
