Surprise, surprise, I am writing another post today. I dedicated this post to bubbles182 for keep pushing me to go forward with my blog and also to specifically to my auntie, Datin Mazlina Mohd Zahid for inviting me to join her charity work last Saturday.
She and her husband have been involving with Soroptimist International Club of Damansara (SID) for quite some times. SID was chartered in 1993 and has carried out many services and charity projects mainly to help the less fortunate women and children in the community. To listen to her talking about SID passionately is just inspiring. Therefore, I was more than eager to participate in the charity show last weekend.
Basically the event on that day was to gather children from various children’s homes in Klang Valley; totaling up with almost 500 children, to watch Megamind movie at e@Curve. The show was sponsored by friends and associates of SID and corporate donors with ticket sold at RM 35 each.
The proceeds from the charity show will be used to replenish SID’s:
- Children Welfare Fund
- Single Mothers Fund
- Cancer Welfare Fund
I was actually overwhelming because:
1. I am never being surrounding with that many kids before
2. To see their excited faces waiting for the movie to start were just mesmerizing
3. Volunteers and children from different races mingle around with each other – this is what 1Malaysia is all about
Many of the children in these homes/centres are children of single mothers who are financially challenged and are unable to support their children thus forcing them to abandon them at the homes. They need our help to ensure that their children can receive a proper education. In addition, we provide skills training for single mothers so that they can be gainfully employed. Our Cancer Welfare Fund helps to subsidise the cost of chemotherapy and radiotherapy for underprivileged women stricken with cancer.
Helping others that are in needs; you will feel good about it.And the movie was good too! (will post about that later :)
