This Christmas, like every year, we at The Beacon welcomed the festive season with the not so fortunate children of Park Street with our Children of Joy campaign. The idea was the same – to bring a smile on the face of the countless children on the festive street selling caps, hats and what not to earn a meal. And of course, like always, as discreetly as possible.
The only difference was, that, this time The Beacon family was amazingly thrilled to welcome almost 50 people as Santas for Children of Joy as they came whole heartedly to make an underprivileged child’s day during this festive season.
All of us gathered right in front of Allan Park, Park Street and followed by a brief from us, all the Santas, young and old alike, dispersed into the merry making crowd at Park Street with bags full of gifts and hearts filled with love.
Soon, All the Santas vanished into the crowd, giving out gifts to the kids, as discreetly as possible, just to bring out a smile on their face while all they were doing was looking at others celebrating.
