[April 13, 2013] Agape Charity Rummage Sale, Taipei
April 13th will be a busy day for family bargain-hunters! In addition to the Bethany Sale that I will be at, the bi-annual Agape Charity Rummage Sale is also on. I'm really pleased to see them supporting local children again this year. I'm a firm believer in giving back to the place that has treated many of us so well over the years.
This sale has grown pretty big, so be prepared to get there early if you love getting great stuff for bargain prices.
Agape Charity Rummage Sale: April 13th: Dear Parents and Friends of City Playgroup, We are excited to announce the sale will be on Saturday, April 13th, from 9:00am - 12:00noon.
We are very grateful to all of you who will make donations over these
next few weeks, through drop offs and directly on the day of the sale.
This time all cash proceeds will be given to Christian Mountain
Children's Home, an orphanage near Kaohsiung, Taiwan, that has been in
operation since 1952. The website link: www.cmchtw.org.tw
All remaining items will be donated to either a local infant / toddler
orphanage in Taipei City or to a charity working with aboriginal
villages of Taiwan, of which both we have donated extra things to for
several years now.
This is a bi-annual event that allows
families to reuse and recycle, as well as de-clutter for a good cause.
We are asking for donations of infant and children's clothing, books,
toys, and infant and maternity related items since these things have
always been the main focus of our rummage sale. We also accept adult
clothing, household goods, and simple useful items that are acceptable
for rummage sales.
Please Note: the only furniture we can take is infant related such as beds, strollers, playpens, and highchairs, etc.
We have been very encouraged by those who have stepped forward already
to volunteer and ask that if you are interested to help in sorting, or
setting up and/or working at the sale on the day, to please respond to
this post, or send me a private message. We need and appreciate any help
you can give! Those who volunteer for a few hours will have an
opportunity to select up to (5) items they wish to purchase while
sorting and at 8:30am for those who will help on the sale day, as a
gesture of appreciation.
