A gesture of seasonal good will
I bought this Nintendo Wii around this time last year. After the initial novelty wore off it was relegated, or should that be ‘elevated’ to the loft, a place where it has remained until now. It is in excellent, almost brand new condition and is in perfect working order. It also has three games with it.
Rather than it gathering dust in the loft I am prepared to give it to a local child/family if they are genuinely in need this Christmas. When I say ‘in need’, I mean a kid or kids who through no fault of their own are likely to get very little this Christmas. Not a boy like Oliver who will be disappointed that his iPod is only the 8gb model and not the 16gb he wanted, or a girl like Olivia who will devastated that her new laptop is silver and not pink like she requested. I mean a kid who will wake up on Christmas morning to a colouring book, a set of felt tip pens and nothing more.
If you know of anyone who fit’s the bill. Send me contact details and as long as I believe it is a genuine case I will arrange for it to be delivered by Christmas Eve. There will be no fanfare or ceremony and the recipient will remain anonymous. The Nintendo Wii would be of little use to any child under the age of seven so please bear that in mind. And finally, if there are any takers I am depending on seasonal goodwill on your part too. It would be low down and vermin like to make up a sob story to just get the Wii as a free gift to yourself or to sell on EBay.
