We received a "charity cold call" from Ms Jackie Teoh who came across to our little blog, she intended to group some friends and especially their teenage children to volunteer at any charity home during coming school holiday which falls from 26 May to 10 June 2012.
"I have difficulty scrutinizing the 'right' charity home...." this is very common issue anyone who wanted to help the needed but dont know how to kick start and choose the right home to help.
Jackie & gengs came out with an idea of "House Keeping" for old folks home at the same time to bring some grocery items to any home needed.Without much searching, TongSim is the right place to do so.
Our 1M1C group sponsored the KFC meal for the mama papa in the house in conjunction to the Mother and Father's day month. Overall, we spent RM662.72 for KFC cater for 55pax old folks and RM50 carbonate water such as Coke, 100 Plus, Orange etc.
We arrived about 1115am and we have a group of 5-7 friends out of some where, Jackie & gengs about 15+-, Julia Chong and friends. We started to distriute the KFC to all tenants follow by drinks. The caretaker told us not to load too much carbonate drink (Nanti berak banyak-banyak, kasi kerja susah o).
You may wonder can these old people eat KFC? Uncle Cheong the founder of the TongSim said :" These people already old, let them enjoy what the want to eat, dont restrict them on food".
Latter, we start to swept the floor and follow by mopping the place. The equipment (mops and brooms) are not in very the good conditions, IF YOU HAPPEN to visit, PLEASE SPONSOR some la..
If you wanted to help this home to do clean up, advice from volunteers there is be there before 10am before the daily cleaning job is perform.
Another chapter of 1M1C hosting a Gotong Royong Cleaning cum mother's days KFC lunch for the home needed. Our methods is always visit and donate, but this is the first Gotong Royong from 1M1C.
To our Belated Mr Lai Chin Lun (the late founder of 1Month1Charity), we wish you HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY in June, hopefully you enjoy KFC somewhere is heaven too.
In memory of Lai, 1Month1Charity will continue your vision.
