Welcome to the weekend, mamas! Here’s what you may have missed this week…
NEW AROUND TOWN:
Mamas, get those credit cards out… online retailer Petite C is hosting a closing sale from now until 20 March! This one-stop shop for kids wear is closing down shop and while we’re sad to see it go, now’s the time to rack up massive savings with all items discounted at 50%. Yep, you read that right mamas! You’ll find a whole assortment of baby wear at Petite C, with all clothes designed and manufactured locally in Hong Kong and Macau. Every item is made from 100% cotton- soft to the touch and incredibly comfortable and safe for little ones to wear! Petite C will also be donating 10% of all proceeds to the Hong Kong Cancer Fund, and is offering a free gift with every purchase of $300 or more – simply use the coupon code “SassyxPetiteC” to redeem. Jump on here to start shopping now! For more info, contact [email protected].
There’s no better gift than the gift of reading! Fill up your little one’s library with affordable reads from new online book store, Baby J. They have a full range of the most popular children’s books, plus activity sets, toys and even baby foods! Children’s books cover babies to 11 year olds, as well as young adults and even audio books. We’re loving the fun, easy-to-browse site – click here to check out their collection and enjoy free shipping around Hong Kong.
There are so many volunteering opportunities available in HK for those looking to help out, but it can be hard to distinguish the good from the bad and track exactly where your money is ending up! If you’re seeking a great cause, the Christian Action organisation at the Chungking Mansions Service Centre has a fantastic program in place to support child welfare, and they’re now appealing for urgent donations for more sponsors by the end of February. The Education Sponsorship Programme currently supports 65 refugee children, with 5 more on the waiting list, providing them with school materials, administration fees and transportation expenses. You can make a difference through any donations, big or small, or sponsor a child directly ($4,800 annual cost). To find out more, email [email protected] or call 2723 6626.
DON’T MISS EVENT:
There’s feline fervour brewing in Macau as hit Broadway musical CATS takes to the stage at the Venetian Macao theatre. Don’t miss this amazing stage performance with performances running from 6-15 March – trust us, the whole family will love it! It’s a kid-friendly spectacle that will have everyone dancing and singing along with the furry, fun and flexible cast – jump online here to book your tickets now before they run out!
