My Local Mr X Appeal For Children In Need
The MR X Appeal is a gift giving organisation started by a local businessman who's name has been anonymous for years, hence why we call him MR X. He use to donate toys for needy children in Swansea, who would otherwise not receive a gift on Christmas Day.
Well, Saturday I went into Mothercare (its a shop that sells baby stuff) They had a tree with tags of names on them, ie, the childs name, age etc. On the board by the tree, It asked if customers would kindly take a name off the tree and buy and wrap a gift for a needy child in our area. Well, when I read that I couldnt walk past because I was shocked to even think there would be children in my neighbourhood or surrounding areas that were quite needy. You just dont think its on your doorstep would you?? I half expected it to go to children in poor countries, not Great Britain and so close to home. Anyway I took a name tag and my husband says he's going to get the kid some cars /or a truck as thats what a five year old boy would play with isnt it?
I felt like I had done some good by taking the name tag and hope that the next time I go into the shop, all the tags would have been taken!!
