Bring and Buy Haiti Earthquake was a fund raising event organised by the Lower School Student Council to raise money for the victims of Haiti earthquake. Students were encouraged to bring their old but unbroken toys, books or CDs to the class and together with the teacher, they would decide how much the items can be sold. Most of the items were set at 1 to 3 euros, but there were some priced at 5/10 euros and even at 50 euro cents. Some of the toys and games were new and the books were hardly used.
Ilham and I had volunteered to help out at Grade 2 tables together with other students and parents. He was definitely excited about raising money for charity and was willing to forgo his judo class in order to do so :)
Judging from the crowd and the not so many items left at the end of the 2 hour period, I think it was a successful event.
We bought a few items ourselves :) Ilham managed to buy a brand new monopoly game for only 3 euros ! He only realised that it was a singapore version later ha..ha... But "it's ok" he said "Singapore is part of Malaysia", he continued :)
This is what we bought, 2 board games, 4 books and a polly pocket doll, all for 10 euros. It's a real bargain... books are expensive here.
