The Wishing Tree

Published by at 9:38 PM under Teacher Talk

The holiday season is fast approaching and at our school, the Middle and High School divisions are creating an opportunity to help children in need. We all like to receive gifts but many children in Bangkok are much less fortunate than ourselves and will not receive anything at Christmas time.

But, with the help of The Wishing Tree, we can change that fate for a few children in the Bangkok area, Lat Krabang.

The Camillian Home is the institution where these children reside. It opened in 2008, trying to bring love and hope to HIV positive and disabled children.  The Home functions as an orphanage and a day care to 31 children, and wishes to open its doors to more children in the future.

Our class is helping 2 children, one boy and one girl.

Toey is a boy who is 10 years old. Some of his favorite things:

color: blue

food: chips

animal: dog

hobby: playing balls, drawing, listening to tales

cartoon character: Ultraman

Jill is a girl who is 5 years old. Some of her favorite things:

color: pink

food: noodles

animal: elephant

hobby: playing on the playground

cartoon character: PowerPuff Girls

The following items are requested:

  • One backpack for each child
  • Pens, pen
  • Highlighters
  • Markers
  • Color pencils
  • Notebooks
  • Folders
  • Pencils, erasers
  • Portable pencil sharpener
  • Toothbrush/toothpaste
  • soap
  • shampoo
  • snacks
  • flipflops

On December 3rd, the filled backpacks will be put back under the tree and eventually into the hands of very happy, grateful, deserving children.

Thanks for giving!
