Who would have thought, I could have fun and raise some fund for a needy cause? The needy in this case is two animal shelter namely Noah ark foundation and Malaysian dogs deserves better(mddb).
My friend shang ko came up with this idea of asking climbers to get their friends to sponsor them when they climb. All pledges/donation collected will be shared with the mentioned animal shelter. An event was created on facebook. Everyone was posting how many sponsor they had and they amount pledged and I had zero. Then I saw one person saying she would not be able to attend, but would be happy to sponsor anyone to climb on her behalf. I quickly volunteered and she pledged rm50.00 .That was a good start
I had no idea who I was going to approach.
Just a couple of days ago I decided to put on my status saying I will be climbing for a good cause , sadly only one friend from Johor responded and banked in Rm100.00 . I had this problem, when it comes to asking people for donations. Well since this is for a good cause I have to be a bit thicked skin and so I sent a message to a good friend of mine and he promptly bank in Rm100.00 as well. Then yesterday another friend donated another rm100.00 . I will chipped in another rm50.00 to make it Rm400.00 It is not much , but at least I did try and I am happy I was able to help out in a small way.
The event was also appear in yesterday's star paper here
