You can too

I've just came across a news article in The Star Online and for the first time, decided to take an action to help the needy that are living in poverty and are going through a tough time... I personally think that everyone should be treated equality regardless of their age, gender, race, sexuality, religion and nationality.. Its heart wrenching to come across facts that people in our own country is struggling to even survive each day...

I know that there are plenty organisation out there who are willing to help these people, but are they able to do it all?? I've decided to take a first step to raise a fund on my own out of my allowance to donate to an organisation which provide SHELTER to childrens who are abused... I know i can do not much to help, but the least is that i am able to contribute... I promise myself that when i return to Malaysia, i will volunteer to help out at that house in whatever way i can, regardless of what it is...

You may not know it, but financial support is only one of the thing that these NGOs are looking for... If you're a college student or a working adult who has got a little spare time in the weekends, you can always go to the shelters to help out with some chores, or even teach or entertain the residents... You may own a Ferrari and has got the best house among your friends, but it doesn't kill to just contribute by lending these less fortunate people a helping hand, or just to brighten up their day... Its just to show that you care, and you are there... No standards apply when you're for it, but just be there with an open heart...

Help others, to help yourself..
