Mary Kay Christmas Party 2013 - a Joyful CHRISTMAS "TREE" Decoration!

12 December 2013, Mary Kay Christmas Party with Children of HOPE at KLPac

Thanks to Mary Kay for the consecutive years of support towards our programs. The yearly Christmas Celebration with Mary Kay has always been a highlight, and en event the children look forward to.

This year, we have another support from KLpac as the Official Venue Sponsor for this meaningful event.

The biggest highlight of this year celebration was the "DECORATION OF CHRISTMAS TREE"! Well, as you can see, eventually the Mary Kay staffs became the "TREE", and were creatively decorated by the children. The children had opportunities to contribute their ideas and creativity for the decoration.

Eventually there was an award given to the Most Creatively Decorated Christmas "Tree" =)

Besides, each team presented its team cheer too! It was always exciting to see the children and staff so out of themselves, seizing the moments and building friendships with one another.

Through all these activities, the children were so inspired and encouraged.

The party ended by the staff presenting gifts to the children. The fun part was the children were given the presents randomly, and the children needed to hand the presents to the right person by referring to the name labeled on each gift.

The girls got teddy bears while the boys had hot wheels toys.

After the Christmas party, we had lunch together at the Societe Cafe. It was such a memorable and wonderful time spent together. Once again, we would like to thank Mary Kay and KLpac for your generosity and great effort in making this event happened for the children.

Carey Ng's Community Project "Girls Day Out"

29 September 2013, Carey Ng and Miss Universe Malaysia 2014 Finalists Community Project "Girls Day Out" at Alliance Fran├žaise de Kuala Lumpur

It was an inspiring workshop, which is a personal initiative by Carey Ng, the Miss Universe Malaysia 2013, was a community project to motivate the teenage girls aged from 15 to 18 years old. Carey named it "Girls Day Out".

A total of 38 teenage girls from HOPE worldwide Kuala Lumpur & Rumah HOPE participated the event. It was a whole day workshop with lots of activities such as self-esteem development, discover personal strength conducted by motivational speaker Ms. Sandra, and also some testimony sharing by other invited speakers like Actress/Model/Celebrity Carmen Soo and Singer/Songwriter Juwita Suwito.

Alongside with Carey were the 6 finalists of Miss Universe Malaysia 2014 to be the "Big Sisters" for the 38 teenage girls throughout the day.

One of the participants from HOPE worldwide Kuala Lumpur was Patricia, who was a beneficial of HOPE worldwide few years ago. Her life changing story sharing session was one of the highlight of the day. Patricia shared about how she, as a female worked hard in the automotive industry, an industry which is dominated by majority men. And after years of gaining experiences, she will be fulfilling her dream, by opening her very own workshop in year 2014, together with her brother.

Another important highlight of the day, was the appointment of Ms. Carey Ng as the Ambassador of HOPE worldwide Malaysia. We first met Carey during the Groupon's Charity Campaign "Be the Difference" with Miss Universe Malaysia 2013 finalists. During that times, Carey was the Ambassador for HOPE worldwide Malaysia and we had raised a total of RM 5,390.00. Soon after she was crowned as the Miss Universe Malaysia 2013, she has been actively involving in our community programs. Carey has been a very dear friend to HOPE worldwide Malaysia and we appreciate all of her effort and great heart for this noble cause.

To make this workshop a special one, Carey spontaneously choreographed and performed a dance in front of everyone. It was a dance based on the song "Proud" by Heather Small. Halfway through her dance, she invited the 38 teenage girls to be on stage with her, and the performance closed up by her giving crowning each and every teenage girl, giving them an affirmation, that they are a beauty of themselves, carrying their dreams and strength with them.

By the end of the workshop, the 38 teenage girls together with their "Big Sisters" wrote down the bad habits they would like to eliminate in their lives on the helium balloons, and they will have to release the balloons to the sky together. Some of them even written down their wishes and dreams. By releasing the balloons, it's a sign of promise to themselves, that they will make it happen in their lives. It was such a meaningful and touching moment!





Once again, we would like to thank Carey, for all your effort, and hardwork putting in to make this workshop happened for these 38 girls. They had indeed impacted by you and the rest of the "Big Sisters" alongside with the invited guest speakers. Credits also go to Carey's parents who had done the decoration of this event together with Carey. We wish you all the best in your journey to Moscow to compete with 86 pageants from all over the world for the prestigious title - Miss Universe 2013/14! Carey, you had indeed made everyone of us, include the nation proud of you!
