This is really intended as a photoblog – gifts collected in January have made it through to some young girls at an orphanage in Cambodia. In addition to these gifts, sent from a company in Sydney, volunteers made up gift packs which contained a few surprises for the girls.

Aside from the gifts you can see the girls getting creative with some cards they are making. Making a difference can be more than just handing things out. Indeed, it should be about empowering people to stand on their own two feet. Sometimes that empowering can be as simple as showing how they can be creative, and in so doing inspire some notion that you are not completely dependent on others. And perhaps generate the ability to bring pleasure to others, even when your own circumstances are not so good.
