.: Dominus Illuminatio mea :.

The Lord is my Light.

One of my friends is organizing a charity drive to collect funds for an orphanage here in Malaysia. He was going about how he brought these kids to McDonald's and a couple of Malay [Muslim] women did so much more by entertaining these kids.

“Because of their kind act and yours too who did not care about their race or religion, I definitely want to now help out a Muslim/Malay Orphanage next month or in July.”

If anyone wants a shot at providing a little happiness into a young child’s life that may indirectly bring about a greater impact in the long run, email me and I shall link you up with my friend. Child sponsorship is approximately RM100 [30USD], and it's a one time sponsorship, closing dates 2 weeks from now. I think I know him well enough that he will not misuse the funds. Believe me, he does not need it. :)

To my friend:: Oxford did the right thing by accepting you. :)

Shining upon us.

What a beautiful thing you friend is doing. Why don't you post the the link to his charity so many can contribute?

I'd love to but he doesn't have one. It was just one of those days when he decided to visit an orphanage, seen a few things there and concluded to hold this charity drive impromptu to raise funds amongst friends. He's progressing well. I'm just putting this up in case anyone would like to be a part of it. :)

Meh, if only paypal was more friendly for Malaysian citizens. I don't have Rm 100 to give, but a lot lesser.

Hajar Alwi said...

I share the same resentment as you. I hate paypal. :P

Anyway, he accepts through Maybank2u. I'm not sure whether he'll accept below RM100 'cos the estimation is RM100 per kid, and there're 35 in all. Perhaps you can partake on some other days or offer it to the others that may need it. Thank you for the kind thoughts though. :)

I wish it was as easy as sending cold, hard cash. Paypal is scary. I loved the little wind chimes (?) for the kids. Those are so cute and very Malay. I wish to get Youssef some! Lots of love sis.'

This is a commendable mission. May Allah bless your project.

Sketched Soul :: Wa'alaikum as'salam wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu lovely Farhana.

Ameen! ^^ Will do. Kindly check your inbox for it in 8hrs time. :)

Oodles of hugs and love. ^^

Lisa :: Lisa, those are actually Chinese ties and it's a traditional Chinese folk craft. Perhaps because I focused on taking the ornaments attached to it hence you didn't notice the details above.

A little history; Chinese ties are a symbol of good luck and it is believed that people that carry it with them will enjoy good luck forever.

If you love them so much, let me know and I'll ship a couple to you and Youssef. ^^

Bunches of love to you too sis! :)

Hajar Zamzam Ismail :: Insha'Allah sis. Thank you so much. :)

Lisa, in case you happen to ask any Chinese people around about this, Chinese ties are also known as Chinese knots. In Chinese it's written as 中国结 [zhongguojie]. You can google the images up. :)
