When I decided to sell some of my unused things for charity, I never thought that many people would support me. Some kind, loving souls decided to donate their stuff (lots of 'em!) or money for a worthy cause. And many donated by buying the clothes, accessories, etc. By the end of session I, Rumah Pernik (my online store, that is) managed to amass about IDR 450,000 (around 45 US $, perhaps?). Using that money, I bought baby food, baby powder (and the like). Alhamdulillah, everything went well. This afternoon, my partner and I went to Muhammadiyah Orphanage and gave the donation.
For the second session of charity sale, I plan to buy toys and stationary for the orphanage. I noticed older kids there, teenagers, too. Seeing them breaks my heart. I wish more people would try to help them.
