I hope you are all having a wonderful week. Last nite I attended a dinner to benefit a local animal shelter that recently experienced a devastating fire. 41 animals were lost due to smoke inhalation. Many organizations and individuals are working tirelessly to raise money so that rebuilding, expanding and improving can occur in the next few months. Animal welfare is a huge issue in Kuwait and the two organizations dealing with the problem are solely reliant on volunteers and donations.
There was a raffle with many prizes to be won. I never win anything but always buy raffle tickets to support whatever the cause may be at any given time.
There was one lady there who won four prizes in a row. First she got a gift certificate, then a box of chocolates. So when the next two prizes came up, and she won, and they were both boxes of chocolates, she gave one to a guy she knew and the last one she gave to my friend Maria. Immediately after that, Maria actually won a prize with her tickets and handed it over to me.
It's a gift certificate to a furniture store called Freedom which I've not heard of before. Apparently it's an Australian company.
25-KD is equivalent to $75, but judging by the prices shown in the magazine, I might not be able to get much for my money. The good news is that it's at the same mall where I can get the white chocolate ginger cheesecake. Remember this ...
Definitely worth a trip! Hope your day is beautiful and filled with unexpected surprises! Blessings to you, Tammy
