"Put your present in the socks, somewhen it wil be back to you"
Christmas often tend to be regarded with a possesion for people who are healthly, rich, and have enough.
We otten neglect people who disabled, handicapped, sicked, don¡¯t have enogh so far. Also, we are busy to enjoy our owns. Thus, I suggest a method of sharing through special blood packs. and people readily would get a pleasure and be warm as sharing thier own belonging.
"In generally, people tend to show a stiff motivation and response to donation, This phenomenon has caused passive dedication to society and human being lives. Naturally, it has weaken a bond between mankind as a I suggest new blood bag design and hope to inspire active blood donating boom or event across the world and dedicate to improve a quality of our lives. By donating warmness with pleasure, People would feel being a ¡°Santa-claus¡± alike . Also, the socks shape welfare and sharing love. "
¡°The richest countries in the world suffer from overproduction and goods bulimia. The biggest problem is no longer a lack of possessions, but homes changed
to warehouses for them. The question from the beginning of the 1970s, ¡°Necessary or not?¡±, is more timely than ever. What do we really need?
Goods and product design have developed through different eras and isms, but we people, whether we are millionaires or not, always and forever have but one heart.
Neither has the number or shape of our hands changed over the millennia. Whether we want to be or not, we are all anatomically ancient in the midst of all these novelty products.
The act of being brings inevitable vulnerability and uncertainty. Our only certainty is our daily trade in dreams and lies.
The important things are always very simple. The greatest gift is to just at the right moment find a personal unquestioning and intimate closeness in another human.
