WHITExpo: Think Think Think, Give Give Give, and Buy Buy Buy!
Look, who doesn’t enjoy a good deed? (Take a seat if you’re Hades or Gargamel, the evil smurf wizard) Seriously, there are fewer things more enjoyable in this world than knowing that you are participating in an act that, thanks to little ol’ you, is going to possibly draw a smile on someone’s face or make things change for the better.
And when an opportunity comes along for good deeds to be reaped, you know that I’m going to want to share it with all of you.
In a nutshell, WHITExpo is almost exactly what it sounds like. An expo in which items and products are sold by local businesses and entrepreneurs.
See, what differentiates this expo from the gazillions of others that seem to crop up like wildflowers during this time of year is the following:
WHITExpo is building the theme and the overall concept of the expo around the worthy cause of environmental awareness. It is committed to making a positive change in the way people perceive environmental health and hopes to create a more proactive approach towards environmental preservation in Kuwait.
Also, there are orphans involved which, if you ask me, is a cause so deeply meaningful that even Atila The Hun could stand to shed a few tears for it.
You see, WHITExpo is going to feature a piece known as “The Make A Wish Tree” from which hangs the wishes of several orphaned children. The purpose of this tree is to allow the visitors of the expo to look at the simple wishes of these innocently heartbroken children and perhaps put a little brightness in their world by making a wish come true for them.
Are you reaching for the Kleenex box yet? (If not, then you’re probably sitting there with that sad pursed lip, wrinkled brow look)
So, sure, WHITExpo is, by most standards, an expo just like any other. Except it has the foresight to not only want to make Kuwait buy, buy, buy (our natural instinct, of course), but to also make it think, think, think and give, give, give.
All my love!
