World Aids Day - 1st December 2008

According to UNAIDS estimates, there are now 33.2 million people living with HIV, including 2.5 million children. During 2007 some 2.5 million people became newly infected with the virus.

Around half of all people who become infected with HIV do so before they are 25 and are killed by AIDS before they are 35.

Around 95% of people with HIV/AIDS live in developing nations. But HIV today is a threat to men, women and children on all continents around the world.

Started on 1st December 1988, World AIDS Day is about raising money, increasing awareness, fighting prejudice and improving education. World AIDS Day is important in reminding people that HIV has not gone away, and that there are many things still to be done.

DT Jessy has taken the lead to scrap a unique momentos reminder for us about this Day. Look at how lovely she blends the Collage Press Paper and embellishment...

And in conjunction with World Aids Day...SG has decided to gives back to community again... this time we decided to look at Rumah Jaireh.
*Rumah Jaireh, which is located in Batu Arang was set up in 2005 to cater for the following needs:-

1) For all HIV + women, with or without children, rendered homeless or rejected
2) For HIV + children made homeless or rejected
3) Sex workers and female drug addicts
4) Women and children with special needs who cannot be taken in by other homes or institutions, for some reason or another

The home also serves as a halfway home till a suitable alternative / home can be found e.g. for unwed mothers. The home is open to all faiths and all races and will also serve as a halfway home until a suitable alternative or home can be found for these unfortunate people.

For that.... SG has decided to sponsor 5% of December Total Sale to them , hoping it will ease their burden...and we are also looking forward to hand over the unique momentos done by DT Jessy as our commitment to get involved and to raise some money for those people living with or affected by HIV/AIDS.
Come on and work with us to give back to our community!

It’s so amazing what we can do to help our fellow community .It’s a great feeling when we’re so able to give back to the community through the work we do.
Yes, we now commence with a small contribution, but I’m 101% assured that this contribution can grow in time with more contributions trickling in from fellow caring souls!
The fact that we’re a newbie in the scrapbooking market is definitely not going to stop us from performing good works for the people who need our help the most....
And it’s a sincere hope of mine that with these little goodies, our small contribution from SG filled with love will truly make their days and leave lasting imprints in their hearts....

Universal Children's Day

Universal Children's Day takes place on November 20 annually. First proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in 1954, it was established to encourage all countries to institute a day, firstly to promote mutual exchange and understanding among children and secondly to initiate action to benefit and promote the welfare of the world's children. It was also chosen as the day to celebrate childhood.

November 20 is also the anniversary of the day when the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child in 1959. The Convention on the Rights of the Child was then signed on the same day in 1989, which has since been ratified by 191 states.

Background (source: United Nations Association in Canada )
After the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child was adopted in 1989, the UN General Assembly recommended that all countries choose a day to promote children's welfare. Although observance of the day varies from country to country, the Government of Canada designated November 20th as National Child Day, to commemorate the day on which both the Declaration on the Rights of the Child (1959) and the Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989) were adopted.

The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child addresses the rights of children and youth under the age of 18. It recognizes their basic human rights and gives them additional rights to protect them from harm. The Convention's 54 articles cover everything from a child's right to be free from exploitation, to the right to his or her own opinion and the right to education, health care, and economic opportunity.

The adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the creation of Universal Children's Day reflects the growing recognition that children are important and valued members of society, now and in the future. Universal Children's Day celebrates children just for being themselves. It reminds us that children need love and respect to grow to their full potential. It is a day to listen to children, to marvel at their uniqueness and all they have to offer.

A key objective of Universal Children's Day is to increase awareness of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Since its adoption by the United Nations, the Convention has been signed or ratified by more countries than any other international treaty. Over the past decade, the Convention has proven to be a valuable tool for promoting the rights of children everywhere around the world.
My DT teams has decided on something special to remember this day....The Minibook Diva -Liza has come up with her beautiful creation .... by naming it as Nurture the Children.
