Earth Day messages, carnival games starting from 20 sen for a go, lucky draws, a craft corner, henna art, face-painting, a juice station where kids can help prepare fruits and vegetables for juicing… What a packed morning it was at Educare! Brandon was visibly overwhelmed at how his playschool had transformed into a carnival-like atmosphere, so much so he took quite a while to warm up to the surroundings all over again.
As always, I met some really nice people at the event–children, parents, teachers, visitors, other vendors. A special shout-out to Belinda who made the prettiest corsages! Brandon loved his. 😉
For the stall I had sliced up some bars of Olive Wheatgerm Honey, Goats Milk and Patchouli and Just Lavender bars to be sold at RM5 a slice, then RM4 a slice for 4pcs or more, and finally at just RM3 a slice for 10 or more pieces. By the end of the day I was almost out of Goats’ Milk and Patchouli soap–people loved its herbally scent! And luckily I still brought the full-sized bars along, because some people asked for them specifically.
I also was really happy that I could avail sample bars for people to take with them to the washroom to use, especially when they had kiddies to clean up from being outside all morning. One father, who bought some soap earlier, came back and asked for one so he could clean up his son’s face which had been painted on (and was starting to run off from all the sweat!). It’s a strange feeling to be so pleased sitting near the toilet!
Thank you to all the teachers and staff at Educare who made the event a real success. I hope you all managed to collect a sizeable sum in terms of donations for UNICEF and WWF as you had planned, and it was an honour to have been invited to be a part of such a heartwarming event.
