shoebox project...

Had a fun time collecting stuff for the shoebox project, thought of actually going through with it at the last moment, even though we thought about it sometime back. Just managed to collect enough $$ and goods to fill 10 boxes. Thought of asking others to pitch in with less than two days at hand, still managed to reach that amount.

Shay & B (Blessie?!) was among the show hosts that we met, -the ones that i can recall the names of- very friendly people, with unbelievable voices!

Shoebox was this charity thing organized by YES FM during the Christmas time, to collect gifts to be handed out to the kids stuck in IDP camps. Always was interested in going there, and perhaps helping out, don't seem like it will happen though. Perhaps i should make it happen. YES FM had some info on the promos & events page on the shoebox project, but its no longer there..probably because it's kindda old news now.

They were short of boxes at the time i went to collect, so there was only 9 boxes with us. Had to hand over the remaining stuff in a shopping bag! :-)

Friends were complaining about the last minute nature of it, should try to make stuff like this not-so-last-minute next time around if that happens. Its just that, i find myself doing it better when it IS last minute..guess i like the rush..LOLz!

This post, more than anything is to thank each one of them who helped out...and the ones who wanted to but couldn't. Just wanted to say, YOU ROCK!
