|CIAM - (2009)|
Here in Brazil we will have the Children's Day on 12 October. We all buy toys as gifts for our own children and others. I think that's great.
It is also customary to many businesses, persons, organizations and NGOs to donate toys to children living in precarious socio-economic conditions, aid organizations, orphanages, to sick in hospitals, poor comunities and more.
But all these toys can not replace the more important: the love.
Many children needed more brotherly-love, than toys.. They need loving most of your visit, than what your toy gift.
We have to meet them personally visiting where they are, bring a smile there, an idea to play with them, an interesting activity, games, rides. We need making more during the Children's Day.
But do not forget: Try to do more throughout the year, until the next "Children's Day".
Let us make the kids believe they can count on that happy day ever, every day, every year.
Make them know they can count on happy days in the future, not only in the "Children's Day."
