Come Fly With Me: Chasing Dreams Vol. 1

Update posted by Shaun LiPaul On Jun 03, 2018

WOW!!! just WOW!!!...RM30 million in just 5 days!! much respect to my fellow Malaysians!!

That is the power of the people! I'm truly in awe of the generosity of the masses to reduce the debt of our beloved country. Truly there are a lot of kind hearted people around there.

But dear friends & family, I'm writing to appeal for your kind generosity as well in helping me fund my campaign. Though donating to the country to reduce it's debts are a much more noble cause in it's own, I for once am trying my level best to achieve my goal of going to flight school. The amount is definitely was lesser than RM1 trillion that the country is in debt of. Frankly speaking, we are in so much trouble from all the mismanagement of funds by our fallen political party over the course of so many years.

To date, this campaign has garnered a total of 2596 views & shared 88 timed on Facebook (which to be honest, it's a lot and I'm thankful that it managed to capture attention of the masses), however just viewing & sharing alone will not help me in reaching my goal. I still receive many words of encouragement and people including ex students of mine who are encouraging me. Of course there will be some of those waiting to see me fail, however what does not kill me will only make me stronger, yes?...

to put simple mathematics in to perspective, if you take my campaign goal of €70, 354.51/RM 326, 640 and divide it by 2596 views, that's just a small donation of €27/RM 125 per person which is a typical night out at the bar on a normal weekend night. But that's just besides the point.

I do not expect a huge sum as that would be asking to much. I'm just here to get the ball rolling. I understand that it's me asking you to part ways with some of your hard earned money. From an outsider's point of view, I myself would donate to a campaign that has many backers for legit reasons. Perhaps just perhaps, that's your view as well. Or perhaps the larger sum may be too much?

For whatever reasons it may be, even if it's just €1, €5, €10/RM 1, RM 2, RM 5, RM 10 it doesn't really matter.as your donations will impact me directly no matter how big or small the amount in which I will be truly thankful for. This would help me cover the course fees to earn myself a pilot's license and it would mean the world to me if you could help me by giving me some feathers so that I could build my wings.

God bless =)

Shaun

ps: I started this campaign way before our new government decided to. (just saying..lol)

Hey guys, thank you for all your queries. I have been having some feed back on some problems you all will face when you opt to donate via a credit card. Mostly it's due to some information you need to key in correctly.

  • Once you choose your country, you'll need to fill up your particulars (name, credit card number, etc) including your contact details. (that's where the problem is)
  • when you key in your phone number, do key it in according to this format as you won't need to enter/key in your country dial code anymore when you key in your mobile number.
  • Example: Malaysia call code is +60. So having said that when you key in your phone number, you'll need to key in according to this -----> 603787XXXXXX. However when you key in your mobile number, instead of keying +601227XXXXX, you need not include the country call code anymore. So the accepted format is -----> 12274XXXX.
  • Once you do all that, finally uncheck the box that says "Save this information with a PayPal account" and your donations will go through.

I hope this information will help you shed some light and troubleshoot in case your donations are interrupted.


Thank you once again.

Hi there! Thank you for stopping by! I’m blessed to have my storied viewed so many times! Thank you for dropping and for reading my story!

I can’t thank you all enough for those who shared my story, for those who encouraged me, for those who contributed some ‘feathers’ and for those who truly believe I can achieve my dreams. You all are heaven sent!

I’ve had many questions on why crowd fund? Is there an alternative way? ‘Are you truly genuine with your effort?’ ‘Are you able to raise the amount?’. Truth be told, my negative side would tell me ‘Shaun, it’s impossible to get that amount!’ however my optimistic self would say ‘Shaun, when you don’t try, you’ll never know’. Surely it’s such a huge amount to be raised in a short span of time.

So what drove me to give this pill a go? To be honest, statistically in the US alone, crowd sourcing itself managed to raise US$ 34 billion in a fiscal year. The immense volume speaks for itself. Secondly, it’s a great way to make impactful & exciting dreams & projects come into fruition in a way that is accessible to all, not just superhumans or trustfund-inheritees.

I never thought of going at this. I had to rethink a million times (okay not a million but a good amount of rethinking and reconsidering). Even to the point after composing my story, to click publish I had my doubts. But I did that to try and see how far I can go. As you have read my story, I have exhausted all options available at my disposal. From building savings to running a business I have tried. To those who know me, all that I have were earned and not given just like that. That’s how it has always been as a young boy growing up till now. Nothing came easy & I have always tried to make it on my own two feet and a full abled body that I have been blessed with. It went to the point of walking into all available legal institutions & banks to secure some financial help or loans. Unfortunately, there were no study loans available and only personal loans in which I have to be earning up to RM20, 000 per month to be able to receive such a huge amount. Some would say ‘try buying a lottery perhaps?’. Sure it may sound easy but what are the chances of me striking the jackpot?. Maybe 1 in a million perhaps.

So that is why I’m appealing to you good people to help me with my cause. I have nothing tangible to offer in exchange aside from the inner purpose of supporting something larger than one’s self except for the ones I have included in my rewards section. I’m not here for a get rich quick scheme or a macau scam of that sort as I believe I would be cheating you of your hard earned money. That is one thing I would definitely want to avoid as I want nothing more than gaining your trust that I’m only using the donations I received for the said cause.

I hope this would have answered some doubts that some of you would have. Sometimes we spend money on things that are not based on needs & wants according to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. Maybe just some spare change that you have is good enough for me. You can make a donation in the currency of your choice however it automatically converts itself into Euro’s. And you do not need a PayPal account to donate as you could do so with a credit card or a debit card. All you have to do is just follow the instructions as per PayPal but when you come to the payment page, you will have the option to pay with a credit card/debit card.

If you have any troubles/questions/doubts, please do not hesitate to give me a buzz!

Thank you =)
