I believe a saying known as “a blessing in disguise” cause I have experienced it for a few times now. In March, I have only one wedding assignment and for the rest of the entire month, my schedule is empty during weekends. At this point, my third sister said to me “Hey, wanna climb Mount KK and help us raise some fund for charity? It’s for children with cardiac disease.” I was quite reluctant at first, thinking that can I manage to climb Mount KK since I seldom exercise. And another thought was what if suddenly I get some bookings. So after much consideration and some pushing from my sister, I finally agreed to her and will be becoming the official photographer for the event as well.
Saying yes is easy, now the other part is to train myself and get ready for the climb. I will need to carry not just my own weight but my gears as well. Also, I will need the stamina to click the shutter, haha! So, according to my sister, all I need to do is to climb the 21 floors of stairs at the place, 3-4 times daily for 3-4 days a week! WOWEE!! Anna-Rina, I know, it’s too simple for you, hehe. Well, this is a challenge for me as well as the challenge to climb Mount KK. How good is this blessing, to be able to climb the highest peak of South East Asia while doing charity at the same time! So, this is therefore, one of a huge challenge for year 2009!
And now, this is for you readers! Besides climbing, I will have to raise RM 10,000 for the charity. At first, I was telling my sister, I can’t possibly do that in such short time (sometimes I am the pessimist) but my sister told me she raised RM8k plus last year in TEN days, easily! OKAY…I will try my best then. So readers – fellow photogs, clients, friends, whoerver you are, you have been put to a challenge! All you need to do is to donate couple of hundred dollars for this charity! Don’t try to click away now! HAHA! Just kidding, but if not how am I to raise such a fund?!! OKAY, back to serious business, I would really appreciate it, on behalf of those children with cardiac disease, any sum will do that if you are interested in donating to them, please contact me and I will tell you how to do it. You can also log onto the hospital’s website at www.pah.com.my and browse around their site. They have done plenty of charities to help raise fund for their patients. So, now, it’s your turn to do a bit and help me help them.
The collection period as shown in the poster above is from Jan 15th till March 15th, 2009. Hoping to hear from you guys and you might get something in return…yeah, a blessing in disguise! But hey, we never do charity hoping to get something for return, right??!! 😉
