Today I was fortunate to be invited to witness this charitable event at Powerplant @ Pearl Shopping Galery organised by The Giving Bank, Creight Event & Services together with the Ministry of Women, family and Community Development.
This is a community educational fund raising initiative under the theme "Fashion for Love" with the slogan "Supporting children to school". The mission is to raise funds from the public community to serve and cater to 300 multi racial children in need to provide them with an equal rights, hope and chance to experience and pursue their dreams.
Mr Simon Goh ( Founder of Creight events) - 2nd from left and the team have started building the team and is already started raising educational funds and preparing towards the main highlight that will be held on the 8th of October 2017 at HGH Convention Centre. Be sure to look forward to Dato' Diraja Adrian Chong as he will be the presenter during the dinner as he is doing this good cause for his late parents.
Solicitation of this campaign will be used and given to the 12 schools that's being chosen and these children will be able to use these funds to pay for their respective fees and to purchase other necessities which includes books, stationaries, school uniforms, school bags and shoes.
