Weekend Reflection: Purple Cake day, 8th March

 The reflection of my scarf is darker than the scarf.

Purple Cake Day is a charity event that supports children to get the education they need to break the poverty cycle and create a better future for themselves, their families, and their communities.

Purple Cake Day is about kids helping kids. The activities celebrate and connect children around the world, helping them learn about their role in the global community, and grow their sense of compassion, respect and leadership.

I spent the past week teaching my students what we could wear for our Purple Cake day. For the seniors, I taught about why we donate. My school chose Kenya, Nepal and Haiti. The first two are very close to my heart. In Singapore, at NTU, with my girl friends for 16 years, we raised funds for the Deaf in kenya. In 1999, I spear headed the donation funds in NTU to help separate a pair of con-joined Siamese twins. The Haiti earthquake is something our students are able to identify with.

Most of the kids wore purple and gave a gold coin. Some classes made purple cupcakes.

Purple was my favourite colour, and a quick check in my wardrobe showed many items of purple. I wore 3 items to school yesterday.
