Marty Online   happy
He’s one of the biggest wholesalers of food products in Belize, but when it comes to his son Vansh’s Birthday, Jack Charles always keeps it humble and unique. Two years ago, he held a massive birthday party for his son in the biggest room at the Princess – and the guests were all the children countrywide who shared his son’s birthday – April 19th.

This year, he’s got a similar idea, but with a twist. He wants to give all those April 19th children countrywide a super-sized gift-bag and a gift certificate – and he’ll do it here at Channel 7’s office.

Here’s how it will work: starting next week Monday, April 15th and continuing to Friday, April 19th, all children 12 and under who are born on April 19th, between the years 2001 and 2012 can come to Channel 7 – with a proof of their birth date to pick up their gift bag and a gift certificate. Today, Jack Charles told us why he’s doing it

Jack Charles - Owner of Extra House
"Well we are celebrating Vansh’s Birthday, my son, and we did this event last year also where we had called all the kids 12 years and under born on 19th of April from Belize City at that time to come and attend the party and celebrate their birthday along with my son. Since last year we didn't have time to invite all the kids from throughout the country. I received several - good amount of text messages, like why were they left out last year.

So, this year we have planned to call all the kids 12 years and under throughout the country who were born on the 19th of April to come visit Channel 7 to pick up their goody bags and their gift certificate of $50.00 which they can use to shop at selected stores countrywide. I'd like to mention that I don't drink, I don't smoke and I don't go - certainly don't go to Casino so all those savings definitely helps me to contribute in these kinds of events a lot. I'd like to mention one of my good friends recently told me that 'Jack, show me one person that can say I'm a millionaire because I won from the Casino, but I can show you thousands of people who become bankrupt because of gambling and addiction'. So I would say saving some money from these kinds of addictions probably can help us to spend more on our kids. So far I have a list of the kids that are 12 years and under, close to 196 kids who are born in the country from 2001 to now, including my son."

So again, only if you are 12 or under and your birthday is April 19th, you can come to Channel 7 next week Monday to Friday between 1:30 pm and 5:30 pm at the corner of Dean and Albert to get your gift.

The Week Of Vansh Gifting Begins

As we told you last week, Xtrahouse owner Jack Charles wanted to do something special for his son Vansh’s birthday – something that would teach the six year old that on his birthday, instead of thinking about receiving gifts, he should be giving. Two years ago, he held a mass, gala birthday party for all children born on the same day as Vansh, that is April 19th. This year, he’s set up a mass giveaway, and he’s doing it along with Channel 7.

Here’s how it works: all children all children 12 and under who are born on April 19th, between the years 2001 and 2012 can come to Channel 7 – with a proof of their birth date to pick up their gift bag and a gift certificate. The gift sharing started today and continues until Friday.

The giveaway continues tomorrow. Starting at 1:30 pm and going to 5:30 pm, only if you are 12 or under and your birthday is April 19th, you can come to Channel 7 at the corner of Dean and Albert to get your gift.

Vansh Giveaway Day 4

Today, the Vansh Charles Birthday giveaway continued here at Channel 7 on Albert street. As we’ve told you, all this week, Monday to Friday all children 12 and under who are born on April 19th, between the years 2001 and 2012 can come to Channel 7 to pick up their gift bag and a gift certificate. We spoke to a few of the recipients who’ve come form all over the country. And we spoke to one mother who is just happy to have her April 19th birthday after he was switched at birth in a hospital mix-up
