Thank your for your support !!

We are happy to announce that we had reached our target – 30kg of old cloths collection! In fact, we have collected far more than 30kg!!  We are sure the needy at Cambodia would truly appreciate your kind donations.

Our collection will have to end prior to the deadline we had set earlier.  We will now focus on raising funds for the courier fee. Our initial plan was to ship 30kg of old cloths, which would cost around $300.  However, we have collected more than 30kg, therefore, we are looking at raising $400 for the courier fee. We welcome friends to chip in, please contact us if you would like to help in funding the courier. Thank you!

All clothings will be sent to Life and Hope Association in Cambodia via courier. For more information about this association, please visit: http://www.lifeandhopeangkor.org/

This project is an initiative from Brian, QiaoTing and Tracy. We hope to help the less-privileged in Cambodia by gathering resources from our friends. A little help from each of us would make a big difference to the needy

Do you have a stack of cloths that you no longer wear? Be it out-dated or you’ve out-grown it, you can pass it on to someone in Cambodia who would truly appreciate it!

Browser for the better – Download IE8 and they will donate 8 meals to “Feeding America” 16/06/2009

Ads on MSN

Whether you like IE or not, this is definitely a move and idea the we should

respect and give them a round applause!!

This morning I am so surprise to see in my msn about this advertisement.

The ad says if you download IE, they will donate 8 meals to “Feeding America”.

Excited by this ad, i click on the ad to check how it works.

I am not Internet Explorer (IE) fan. In fact i only use IE when needed (some website force you to use IE, otherwise i won’t work nicely). Most of the time I am using Firefox and Flock (a variant of Firefox).

However, you could be IE fan out there. Even if you are not, you can also take this browser for the betteropportunity to help the rest by simply downloading IE 8.

I extracted this paragraph from the website

“Only complete downloads of Windows® Internet Explorer® 8 through browserforthebetter.com from June 8, 2009 through August 8, 2009 qualify for the charitable donation to Feeding America®. Microsoft® is donating $1.15 per download to Feeding America® up to a maximum of $1,000,000. Meals are used for illustrative purposes only. Meal conversion is effective until June 30th, 2010.”

So please download IE8 from browserforthebetter.com by August 8, 2009. Microsoft is donating $1.15 for every completed download through browserforthebetter.com.

What you waiting for, let’s do it!🙂

 

Hair For Hope 2009 11/06/2009

Hair For Hope 2009

Hair for Hope 2009 is an event, which invites members of the public to shave their heads to show their support for children with cancer. Through this symbolic gesture, we aim to:

1. Create awareness of childhood cancer in Singapore

2..Show to children with cancer and their families that they are not alone in their fight against cancer.

3. Boost the self-esteem of children undergoing chemotherapy by sending the message that that there is nothing wrong in losing their hair or being bald.

4. Raise funds to help children with cancer and their families

5. Build a community of support for children with cancer and their families.

HfH is the only head-shaving event in Singapore that serves to raise funds and awareness of childhood cancer. Every shaven head represents an understanding by an individual of the ordeals that a child with cancer is subjected to. HfH also provides opportunity to garner support from the public in the form of monetary pledging. HfH then brings a two-fold contribution: raising awareness and funds for CCF beneficiaries.

Find out more about Children’s Cancer Foundation and Hair for Hope Official website

They target to allow around 100 walk-in shavees depending on slots available on that day. Those who missed the online registration can try your luck to walk-in.

5th July 2009 (Sunday) at Velocity @Novena Square, 12pm – 7pm 238 Thomson Road Novena Square (S) 307683 (opposite Revenue House
