Planned to do a summary of 2010 activity, but was tied up with work. So finally, spend some time and manage to complete it.
To do one charity a month.
The idea of 1M1C started from discussions on what we can do to give back to the society. As we look into our lives, knowing we are much more fortunate compared to many people. Hence, we started to collect money and able to contribute to the homes that needs help. Our first month collection was only RM200 and it start growing from there.
We have a core team to plan, co-ordinate the monthly activities and collection of funds. Our funding comes from donors and strangers who comes and go, depending on their financial capability.
During the early stage, donors comes and go. With new people joining, ideas were formed and decide that we can have a group of permanent donors, which makes planning easier as we know we have a minimum amount to contribute in a month.
Total Homes Contributed - 19
Total Collections for 2010 - RM8260
As our contributions are very minimal compared to the homes' monthly expenditure, which can comes up to RM10-30k a month, we hope that based on our visit and blog update, it will open the path to those people who read it, hoping they will do their contribution themselves without us and also to generate more awareness to the public. Based on our visits across Klang Valley, there are homes in every town that you can help.
We hope readers will be inspired to do more charity and help others in need. With price of groceries going up, the homes need every single little contribution that you can help.
There are many strangers that has contributed to the fund which we have not met. A big THANK YOU for your contribution.
