“Generosity is giving more than you can, and pride is taking less than you need.”-Khalil Gibran
Christmas is approaching and there are many children in this world today who do not have sufficient cash or funding to even buy a new pair of school shoes or stationary. Whilst there are also many who are fortunate enough to enjoy the luxurious lifestyle as they are blessed abundantly.
This Christmas season, Four Points by Sheraton Sandakan will try to assist the less fortunate children and seek your kind contribution in kind. The hotel lighted up the Charity Christmas Tree on the evening of 2 December. Any member of the public, hotel guests or staff, can just come by and write a wish for these children by buying a ‘wish card’ that come in various colours and a range of prices starting at RM10. Aside from that, the hotel is selling greeting cards (in a set of six) in conjunction with this year-end festive season which the cards were designed and picked from the winners of ‘Card Designing Competition’ event which were held at the hotel on 12 November 2016.
The hotel aims to collect RM8,000 and it will be contributed to UNICEF. Other efforts made to reach this amount are by selling Season’s Greetings cards and also brand new feather or foam pillows and a portion of these sales will be allocated to this act of giving.
At 630pm, Datuk and Datin Ir James Wong together with the two renowned celebrities Juwita Suwito and Zamil Idris lighted up the Christmas tree and made the evening a meaningful one. Guests were then entertained with the choir performances by the staff accompanied with the piano played by the hotel’s general manager, Mr. Peter Padman.
It was indeed a wonderful and meaningful evening with the guests whom gladly hang their ‘wish card’ on the Christmas tree. Greetings cards and wish cards are available for sale at the front desk, come drop by and write your message to the children out there.
