Help me support my favourite NGO! 🙂
I’ve always been a frequent volunteer for Great Vision Charity Association (GVCA)’s Shopping Buddy Program, which is a program that aims to assist the B40 community. Throughout my experience of volunteering with GVCA, I am constantly amazed by the effort and passion they share to provide for the beneficiaries that are under their care. Thus, I always make myself available in many of their events, simply because I believe in the way they do things. Moreover, GVCA has always been transparent on the funds they received from donors, detailing every penny that goes into each programs, so you can rest assured the donations are in good hands.
This round, GVCA is looking to raise RM500k to continue their charity programs in year 2021. Breakdown as below:
• Shopping Buddy Program – RM42 k
• Didik-Kasih EduCare Program – RM 218k
• Charity Program Facilitation – RM 110 k
• Operating Expenditure – RM 130 k
Rakan Shopping Program would be the program I participated in the most, it aims to support the B40 communities by taking care of their monthly groceries needs. With groceries paid for, families can then focus on paying off overdue bills, medical fees, as well as the educational costs for their kids. Hopefully, it’ll be able to ease the burden of the families, and to create a better lifestyle for them.
The Didik-Kasih EduCare program is a study aid that aims to assist those who wishes to further their tertiary studies by providing them with a start-up assistance and monthly allowance to cover his / her living expenses while studying throughout the period of assistance. The program also aims to influence and inspire successful applicants to give back to the society by getting involved in and organizing charity activities.
My 1st goal: To raise RM 2000.
If the target is reached, I want to challenge myself to go vegan for 2 weeks, and in the process of doing so, document it and share it with my friends. Hopefully, in the future, I’ll be able to practice a lifestyle that reduces the environmental impact by eating meat-free meals as part of my weekly routine.
Let’s help each other out in times of crisis!
