Our Campaign Storyends 20 Feb 2021, 11:59 PM
Hi friends, I'm shaving my head to raise money and give back to a charity that is helping those severely impacted by the pandemic.
Living in these times has made me immensely grateful for the things I'd normally take for granted in life. And since I have the power to help others during these uncertain times, why not? Besides, I've always wanted to know how it feels like to be bald.
If you would like to make a difference (without shaving your head), feel free to donate. Any donation, no matter how small, is important. All proceeds go to Mercy Relief - they not only help human tragedies and disasters in APAC region, but also provide COVID-19 relief and assisstance.
When the fundraising goal is met, I'll update this page so you get to watch me shave my head live.
Thanks in advance for your contribution as this charity means a lot to me!
