KUALA LUMPUR: For one blissful moment, 10-year-old Radiatul Qaisaraa, who suffers from leukaemia, was able to forget about her condition and live her dream of being Elsa, the regal yet sassy queen from the Disney hit, ‘Frozen’.
Donning Elsa’s trademark ice-blue dress paired with diamante-encrusted ballerina shoes, the girl from Karak, Pahang, who has been in and out of hospital since she was four, was the belle of the ball at a ‘royal tea party’ recently.
The moment was made possible thanks to Le Marché de Noël, a French Christmas market which had worked with Make-A-Wish Malaysia to put a smile on the faces of underprivileged children.
Last year, Le Marché de Noël raised some RM220,000 to be channelled to underprivileged Malaysian children with illnesses via Make-A-Wish Malaysia and A-Heart-for-A-Heart programmes.
In continuous support of the underprivileged Malaysian children, a charity Christmas bazaar is set to kick off its 7th installation this Dec 7 from 9.30am to 4pm at the Glasshouse at Seputeh.
Le Marché de Noël has set a target of raising RM220,000 from this year’s Christmas Bazaar and the Christmas Party that will be held the same night from 7.30pm.
All proceeds would be channelled to Make-A-Wish Malaysia and A-Heart-forA-Heart to provide aid for children affected by life-threatening medical conditions.
Visitors would be spoilt for choice with more than 70 specially curated vendors offering a diverse range of quirky paraphernalia, handcrafted goods, premium decorative items as well as other unique one-offs under one roof.
Over the years, Le Marché de Noël has earned a reputation for being one of the best Christmas markets in Malaysia to shop for unique gifts while contributing to a good cause at the same time.
The entry fee for the Christmas Bazaar is RM30 per person at the door and RM25 per person pre-sale. Christmas Dinner Party fee would be at RM190 per person at door.
