FiFi’s Night before Christmas : #TimetoGive.

By  |  26 Comments

T’was the night before Christmas, when all through the town,
FiFi was out shopping in a gorgeous Gucci gown!
The wallet was Hermes, the Amex was there,
She knew it was time to go shopping for charities and it was time to care…

The shops were all bursting, full of such fabulous things,
And all FiFi could think about was lots of Bling Bling!
but she logged onto Fred Hollows  to find to her delight
An amazing gift of just $50 to light up a young child’s sight. #bless

She nicked into Unicef  and piled up into her cart,
The most lovely set of blankets $46 to warm up the heart,
But it was in Care Australia when she saw the most incredible must-have-buy,
Clean water for a family that will simply save lives $60. #pleasegive.

She shopped till she dropped and filled up the Boxster,
Then headed to the Batcave and it was time for a vodka!

She wrapped up her presents then decorated the tree,
And covered it with four divine red Christmas baubles , sooo FiFi  (savethechildren).
She hummed to Do they Know it’s Christmas: still a wonderful C.D!
While she put up some chic simple Christmas cards, Yes, from Amnesty !

It was getting late so she threw down a drink,
And went off to sleep without even a blink,
But suddenly The Batcave was all a clatter,
So she sprang from her Eames chair to see what was the matter,
She looked at the window and who did she see?
All her Christmas’ had come at once, it was George Clooney!

He was dressed in Gucci and snazzy Yves Saint Laurent,
And under his arm an animal gift card from world V-is-ion* $25
His eyes how they twinkled, his grin how cheeky!
And when he pulled out her present, suddenly FiFi wasn’t sleepy!

She ripped it open, she was shouting with glee,
It’s sooo exciting there’s something for me!
Ahh! Another black Amex: It must be a dream,
She can now go non-stop shopping for others in 2017!

So FiFi jumped up and kissed George (mmm what a sight!)
And as she ran off to go shopping, sooo thrilled with delight
She yelled Happy Christmas to all.
And to all a Goodnight!

Merry Christmas and a safe and happy and healthy 2017.

    Merry Christmas Fifi, thanks for the giggles & yes I’ve donated.
    The first gift I buy each year is for someone less fortunate.
    If we all give a little…
