Seriously I can’t write well on such post. As well as honestly, I don’t make any monthly donation to Charity Organization after the NKF saga. Since then I started to lost faith. But I still donate to those “Flag” fund donation activities in Singapore.
Our recent donation often goes to The Haemophilia Society of Singapore
A brief introduction of what Haemophilia is:
Haemophilia is a lifelong bleeding disorder that prevents blood from clotting properly. Unlike a normal person, if a Haemophiliac gets a cut, he will not stop bleeding easily. The main problems face by a Haemophiliac is the bleeding and swelling in joints, especially in the ankles, knees and elbows. He will need to inject himself with Clotting Factors (very expensive drug) to ease the pain and stop the bleedings.
Our donations often go to friends or blogger I know in this blogging sphere. I have participated many and I believe there are more to come because in this world here, there are many kind souls who are more willing to help. (More importantly, due diligent work on checking the Charity Organization is done.) Still I will also check their accountability before donation is done by myself.
A group of mommy bloggers are coming together to create awareness for this dire situation and raise funds to help hungry kids around the world. They have this organization Children’s Hunger Fund which we can help to raise some funds for.
If you would like to help you can do the following:
1. Crop and paste any of this above information or pictures on your blog site, together with this logo (just right click and save image in your hard drive or copy the html for this to add as a widget to your site)
<a href=”http://www.chfus.org/catalog/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage-ask.tpl&product_id=92&option=com_virtuemart”><img src=”http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6045/6308510246_604f399a76.jpg”width=”250″ height=”87″ alt=”CHF”></a>
2. Appeal for friends and readers on your site to go directly to this page to make direct contributions. All it takes is US $5.00 for 100 meals for the children. Of course, it will be great if you can contribute more. You can also go to this page to make a direct contribution to areas that are most needed; like disaster relief.
3. If you have a preschooler or a child who has learnt to save some money, talk to him/her to see if he can give a little of his money to help to feed hungry children.
Again I have done my due diligent checking their site for accountability. You can read more here.
I have decided to donate and this has reminded me to forget what had happened in the past and I am going to donate to the Children’s Cancer Foundation in Singapore now as well!
