We are scouting for 12 - 40 volunteers to assist Kechara Soup Kitchen distributes food to the homeless and urban poor in Kuala Lumpur. There will be 2 different slots on Saturday nights, which are on 6 September 2014 to 13 September 2014. Public can also sponsor a slot by donating the cost needed to buy food and necessities for the homeless and urban people. Contact Dayana (firstname.lastname@example.org) at 03 - 7733 6419 to place donation or volunteer.
We are planning to build a Malaysian Unity map made up of the faces of diverse Malaysians. Hence, we encourage public to share their selfies for the purpose. Selfies can be shared as many as possible via:
- #SaySomethingNice Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/saysomethingnicecampaign
- Own Instagram account with the hashtag #SelfieSomethingNice
- WhatsApp the selfies to 019 - 226 1106
- Email the selfies to selfiesomethingnice.com.my
#EatSomethingNice is a collaboration with Mr William Huee Thing Hoa, who has visited over 1000 schools to deliver talks on healthy eating and the ill-effects of junk food. During the 17-day campaign period, Mr William will be on a talk circuit to 10 schools.
#RM10SomethingNice is a crowdfunding initiative under the #SaySomethingNice campaign to help fund Kechara Soup Kitchen and Mr William Huee's #EatSomethingNice project. As an organisation with a keen passion for Unity, we as the organiser feel compelled to realise and assist Kechara Soup Kitchen and Mr William Huee in their charitable efforts. To join, public can donate through: http://pitchin.my/project/145
Collaborating with #TamakPahala, the organizer of #FreeMarketTTDI, #ShopSomethigNice allows the less fortunate to 'shop' for necessities - for free! The free market gathers and offers pre-owned items that are still in good conditions, which others can still benefit from its use. The free market will be hosted at Dataran Petaling Jaya and everyone can help donate as much items as possible. To donate or to know more about this project, contact Freida (email@example.com) or Aby (firstname.lastname@example.org)
In addition, this year zubedy will also collect unused items/pre-owned items still in good condition to be handed over to the identified individuals/NGOs/soup kitchens for the #CollectSomethingNice project. The items will also be donated for the Free Market project #ShopSomethingNice. Distribution of items will be done on August 30th and 31st – a tie-in with #ServeSomethingNice. This is an initiative by Zubedy. To place your donation or to volunteer, you may contact Dayana (email@example.com) or Rina (firstname.lastname@example.org) at 03 - 7733 6419. You can also call her for further inquiries.
