Giving up 1 life's luxury, means daily meals to the Needy
for Willing Hearts
Our Campaign Storyends 04 Feb 2016, 12 AM
I'm turning 39 in slightly less than 2 mths' time. May I ask for my 39th birthday celebration to receive something a little different than presents, red packets and well wishes? It is also the months of festive givings. May I request your kind support (in any amount) to my fundraising campaign in lieu of gifts to make the festives and my 39th birthday celebrations an even more special and meaningful one?
I'm going to give up Cafe Mocha (drink Kopi-O instead) for 3 months and donate the money saved to the poor and needy people for their 'daily bread'. My resolution in 2016 is to give my time volunteering to people in need, paying it forward.
Wish all a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year. Many good years ahead.
