Food collection month June 2005

Dear All,
Thanks for the quick response for the food collection request last month. Here is the new list below.
40,Lorong Maarof, Bangsar Park
59000 KL….

For those new to the list, I collect food stuff and other household items for a couple of NGOS that mainly have HIV+ clients and/or battered women and children. I prefer the items to be bought and sent to my house for redistribution so I have no issue of accounting for money to all. This formula has worked well in the last 5 years or so and I would like to stick to it. ALSO, I am happy to share this mode of working with NGOs with anyone else who would like to start it themselves.

Back to the food collection: PLEASE remember to buy generic brands if possible as it is value for money.

Also, for those who can help, Please lend a hand to the deaf and sponsor one or more students, totally or partially for a deaf camp coming up.

Details are as follows
Theme: Be One
Venue: Kuala Lumpur/Penang, Malaysia
Dates: 29 JULY- 5 AUGUST, 2005
My suggestion is to sponsor 50-60% of the cost of 700RM per person and leave the rest to the student to come up with. So an investment in a deaf person’s life to the tune of 300-400 ringgit per person will give them an opportunity to meet with other deaf youth from around the world and learn and share with them. If you desire to sponsor more, please go ahead. Please do think about it and perhaps get together with a few people and sponsor or part sponsor one or more youth.
