Back To School 2014 - PPR Kota Damansara

With year end coming, the usual Back To School Program is becoming the norm for all NGOs to help the community and 1M1c is not different. Background work start 2 months earlier with volunteers recee the needy community. Upon confirmation of location and number of students, the usual things fall into place - create FB event and fund raising. I was a bit skeptical if we can really pull this off, but I guess things will fall in place when the time comes. Just do it and dont worry. Needless to say, the support is just GREAT and by reading this entry, you know we have 50 families that do not need to worry about their children's school expenses. My sincere appreciation to all the sponsors and volunteers who have made this event possible. Each children received 2 uniforms, 1 pair of shoes, 1 pair of socks, and 1 school bag - courtesy from Dr Azma and Roshida. Thank you ladies...;)

We met up Kota Damansara toll to convoy to location, as normally PPR access is a bit hard to find. Nevertheless, we had everyone arriving in time... and even had a chance to do a lucky draw at the toll booth (yeah.. things you do at toll both..!). Special thanks to Jenny for arranging this. The lucky draw presents are item used by the homeless people, and I wont disclosed the first prize of the lucky draw...

Lucky draw! woo hoo..

I would like to express my appreciation to the all the donors, volunteer that has been working with us to ensure this event (and many other events) are succesfully completed, with everyone feeling awesome about it. The amount of background work done are not reflected here and does no justice to those who have contributed their money, time and effort in ensuring the program is completely successful. Special thanks to all donors who have donated for this project and today, we have 50 students going to school and hoping to make a better future for themselves!
