It's my annual fund raiser! This year, I'm pledging funds to two charities, one for KDF (not NKF) and one for Xmas presents for Muslim Orphanages. Whatever amount I will receive will go direct to these causes and nothing will go into my pocket (that's a separate fund). The amount wil be split into half.
Last year's Xmas Gift Donation was a success and we managed to buy over 100+ gifts for 3 different muslim orphanage. Each gift was tagged to a donor's name wishing them "seasons greetings" and allowing the orphans to enjoy the feeling of receiving gifts. When I visited the one of the orphanage (Darul Ishan Orphanage), one lady told me that the muslim orphans don't receive anything usually as the Christian, Buddhist orphanage are the ones that are popular amongst donors. I'll really like to make this a tradition.
For KDF (Kidney Dialysis Foundation), I'm hoping to raise $1,000 by cycling from Thailand to Singapore (covering 1,000km) in 4 days. All donated amounts will go direct to the organisation and the trip support will be covered by self and other sponsors. I know everyone is starting to avoid me especially during fund raising time =) I apologise!
