XENOPHOBIA CRISIS – CALLING FOR TOYS TOYS TOYS – MAYBE A TIME FOR A TOY CLEAROUT!

27May08


Hi guys,
My friend Debbie Kaminer, a lecturer in the UCT Psychology Department, is collecting toys for a very helpful initiative with displaced refugee children — see below. If you have any toys you can give or maybe old picnic blankets for the kiddies to sit on (concrete floors are flippin’ freezing), please get in touch with me or Debbie (her email is ubawa@global.co.za.)

And of course please pass on this appeal to your network.
Thanks a million!

Hi moms, [and Dads!]
I’m trying to organise a collection of old toys so my psychology Honours
students can start running some play groups with kids who’ve been displaced
by the violence of the last few days – something to keep the children
occupied while their parents try to figure things out and to provide some
sense of normality in the midst of all the uncertainty. If you or any of
your friends have old toys to donate, please let me know and we can arrange
a drop-off or pick-up.
Cheers,
Debbie

    Good way to involve our children in learning to share and care for others
    One thing i saw a while back was children being taught to put there top 10 toys in a box and give the rest away!
    and every time they get a new toy means you give one away
    So you keep to the same number

    I’ve got friends that call me a hoarder – when i look at their childrens rooms……….. i don’t think so!
    Rooms bursting with toys
    I find it embarrassing
    I need to look at this me thinks!
