My Malaysia Program – Stage for Charity
Posted on: Thursday 08/04/2013
The stage play organized by People Giving was held on the 3rd March 2013. It was indeed a successful event. It was a fun filled day for the 250 kids from a total of 7 different orphanage homes and refugee centers - Dignity of Children Foundation, Karen Learning Center, United Learning Center, Zophei Learning Center, PKYMS Home, Karunai Illam & Rita Home.
The kids were entertained by Uncle Sam and his team, who brought to life two legendary tales – Goldilocks and The Three Bears & The Gingerbread Man. The kids were all seen in high spirits. The sounds of their laughter echoed through the hall as Uncle Sam and his team performed the tales with their magical touch. At the end of the hour, the kids were treated to a special photo session with the performers.
The joy in the faces of the kids, the sparkles in their eyes, and the innocence in their laughter that was seen during the shows will always remain in our heart. We have to agree with the old saying "There's nothing like putting a smile on a kid's face". The joy you receive seeing their happy faces is worth more than a thousand words, and all this would not be possible without each and every one of YOU.
This event wouldn't have been possible without our sponsor Arahe Solutions, our performers Uncle Sham & his team, our volunteers, and most importantly each and every one of you. Thank you for your generous contributions to sponsor these beautiful kids from the various different orphanage homes and refugee centers. Thank you for being a part of their smile. And thank you for loving them.
More than 90% of our donors generously donated to sponsor a child. Indeed a selfless act of love was portrayed by each and every one of our donors. And with this generosity and love, all 250 children were blessed with a fun-filled day at the stage play.
Here's more great news for you: not only did you all put a smile on the faces of the kids, but your contributions have also helped to raise funds which were channeled to the Breast Cancer Welfare Association (BCWA). This is very much in conjunction with February, the cancer awareness month. A cheque of MYR 14,550 was presented to the Breast Cancer Welfare Association (BCWA) on the 13th March 2013.
All this would not have been possible without Arahe Solutions. A special thank you to Arahe Solutions for sponsoring the event. Without the support from Arahe Solutions, we would never have been able to channel all your contributions to Breast Cancer Welfare Association (BCWA).
From us at People Giving, a BIG Thank You to each and every one of you for your contribution, Love and Support for making this event a success!
