Christmas is indeed the season of giving. There have been a lot of charity events in the metro which has held various fundraising activities and also engaging the donors in a fun way.
My officemates and I attended one just this weekend! Krispy Kreme held Crafty Christmas, a special activity that partners with renowned local contemporary artists to inspire customers to let out their inner artists for a good cause.
Last December 12, from 11 am to 8 pm, Krispy Kreme transformed their flagship store in BGC High Street into an artist’s Christmas workshop as patrons are invited to personalize their own Krispy Kreme tin cans, in the hope that participants will use this opportunity to create a unique tin can that features their take on the spirit of the holidays.
To inspire the participants, popular artist Kerby Rosanes doodled on a giant Krispy Kreme tin can live!
In order to further motivate the customers-turned-artists, specially decorated tin cans that embody the Yuletides made by famed artists Leeroy New and Olivia D’Aboville was exhibited on-site.
At the end of the day, the creator of the best decorated tin can will be awarded with a year’s supply of Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Aside from being a fun and interactive experience, the tin cans can perfectly hold six Krispy Kreme doughnuts making them the ideal gift that sends a sweet message to the Santas in our lives.
Best of all, the proceeds of the Krispy Kreme tin cans will go to the creation of an art room at Catmon Integrated School in Malabon. This aims to support the children’s creativity and to give them a venue in which to express their imaginations through art.
I was with 2 of my team mates and I could say we all had fun! It's not everyday that we get to unleash our creativity while helping out at a cause, right?
Here's a close up shot of my tin can. I just highlighted the cover of the tin can.
Thanks for the fun crafternoon, Krispy Kreme! This iniative will surely put a giant smile to the kids's faces when they get the art room to unless their creativity!
