Save the Children’s Everyone “Knit One, Save One” Mega Knitting Workshop Karena Lam Joins Volunteers to Send Love and Warmth to Babies
When kids in Hong Kong have warm clothing for the coming Christmas, newborn babies in Napel are suffering from heat loss due to lack of warmth on the heads. This year, Save the Children is holding a “Knit One, Save One” charity sale on this Sunday. By buying yarns and knitting caps, donors can send love and warmth to the needy children, and also being blessed for giving rather than receiving.
To officiate at this glamorous event,Save the Children invited the renowned artist– Ms.Karena Lamto be one of the honorable guests of the Charity Sale,and she will call on the shoppers to support this “Knit One, Save One” campaign and arouse people’s awareness of these vulnerable children.
Ms. Karena Lamexpressed, “When I learned about the situation, I realized I need to do something to help improve the situation.” The actress showed no hesitation to accepting Save the Children’s invitation to this meaningful event, though she has always inclined to appear less in public and to spend more time with her daughterKayla.
She added, “I adore children. My Christmas wish is that every child be given the opportunity to survive and enjoy Christmas. I am hoping we can raise more fund and recruit as much participation for this Everyone campaign as possible.”
The event began with a danceperformance bya group of cute kidsfollowed by a ceremony officiated by Ms. Karena Lam, and Ms. Anita To, Executive Director of Save the Children. The guests of honour were invited to put knitted hatsin a huge parcelwith fouradorable children dressed in Christmas costumesand the parcel willbesentto babies in Nepal as Christmas gift.
