February 2016

After the success of last year’s fundraising party, we were able to keep the projects a float. At $40 SDG a person, it may not seem like life changing contributions but collectively we have made that difference. Your donations and generosity goes toward covering the basic needs such as rent, utility, resources, education, and most importantly food. With this, we’re able to keep the children off the streets peddling for cash and changing a community through free education.

Since we started this project, there has been lots of development for both the English school and the children’s shelter. Please go to their individual page for links to their website where you could read more about their progress and developments. If you would like to make donations directly you could also do so via their website. Recently, the founder of CTS, former PACDOC children’s shelter, has asked me to become an associate member. This will allow us to do more with the program in terms of reaching out to corporate donors.

For now, it’s that time to top up our balance. Mark your calendar; Friday APRIL 1st, 2016 at BluJazz Cafe, Singapore for another fantastic fundraising party (See UP COMING EVENTS page for more details). Please come support and/or hear more about the program. Again, 100% of the proceeds and donations will go towards the 2 program VDCA (free English school) and CTS (children’s shelter). See below for 2015’s contributions:

2015

It’s been a while since I’ve updated this site. Not to worry I’m back and in the process of organising another fundraising party for 2015. It’s been two years since the last event and the funds are completely dry. For over a year and a half, I was able to send $300 usd/month to the children’s shelter and make numerous amounts of donations to the English school just from the 2013 fundraising party. I hope we could do the same this year. Please come out and support us and if you can’t make it to the fundraiser, no worries just contact me personally and you can still donate to the cause. Go to the Up Coming Event for more details on the 2015 Fundraising Party.

Raise the Roof Event

Ymak@blujaz

THANK-YOU to everyone who supported Raise the Roof night and for those who couldn’t make it there will always be a “next time”. It was a fantastic night at BluJaz full of music, laughter and mayhem. It was a great success because of my amazing friends who ALL volunteered their services from laminating vouchers to being auctioned for the night. The bar manager of BluJaz also wants me to thank you as well : ) For pictures of the event please go to http://gallery.me.com/sprecks#100413&view=mosaic&sel=0ymak@ BluJaz

Special THANKS to all those involved in the performances, donations, and organization process:

Opening Act:    Ms. Nadine

Soloist:             Danny T.

Open Mic:        Lorne & Garett, Ignacio, Dave M.,Kate, David D.,& Micheal

Host:                Barry & Conners,

Auctions:          Walker & Tim, Foxy, Butch, Margaret, Gordon, Tom, Arin, Owain, Jason, & Tanya’s massage therapist friend

Behind the Scenes:  Solay, Tara, Jessica, & Noelle

I’m not sure about posting our proceeds on line but here’s a quick overview of what I would like to do with the generous donations:
Short Term Goal – Upcoming March Visit:

1. Standard food and basic needs for the children’s shelter

2. Help pay for another boys’ dormitory at the children’s shelter

3. Check out what the English School needs (they just opened a second school)

Long Term Goals:

1. Set up a bank account just for the program for monthly wires to both the children’s shelter and English school.

2.  Monthly wires of 200 usd for the next 12 months to each of the program (children’s shelter and English school).

a. Children’s Shelter: covers the cost of just rice and cooking condiments for the month

 b. Local English school: electricity or basic utilities to keep the school running for the month

3. To start some sort of program with the children’s shelter to promote or encourage more parental/family visits. It’s important for the parent(s)/extended families of the children staying at the shelter to establish a connection and/or be re-united with their loved ones. A successful children’s shelter should only be just a temporary place for the children. They need to be with their families or loved ones but at the same time they need food and shelter as well. What to do? What to do? It is a bit of a matrix but I will see what I can do.

4. If you would like to donation directly to the organizations please go to their pages and there you will the find link to their website.

Once again THANK-You! for your kindness 🙂
