Have you forgotten about the terrible earthquake and tsunami that ravaged parts of Japan two months ago?????
That's the thing with us human beings....we easily forget about things that we are not in contact with daily.....and sometimes...you even forget that.....such as your parents!!!tsk tsk on those that always say they are too busy for their loved ones.... This time, I am here to jolt your memory on the series of events that led to a huge disaster in Japan which caused many lives and thousands of others to be homeless...
If you have stopped caring about the Japanese, they are still trying to "clean up" the debris, destroyed houses, schools,etc. lying on their roads(if it is still intact). And some are probably still living in shelters, surviving on what is fed to them.... it's NOT time to turn a blind eye to their plight.......
An organization called Flip(For the love in people) which was established in Melbourne, Australia recently brought my attention to how the organizers(who are just normal citizens like YOU) are still active in asking for donations for Japan. This organization was founded by a group of Malaysians living in Melbourne who wanted to do good by organizing charity events to assist natural disaster funds all over the world! And they have organized quite a few, but their recent efforts are currently concerted towards helping Japan ...Yes, they are organizing an interesting charity event to raise funds in Malaysia....What do I mean by interesting?
It's called The Beatles Unplugged where you get to see local artistes performing at Rootz in Kuala Lumpur....
These local bands are popular in the industry and you have probably heard of them before such as Bittersweet, Ask Me Again, Reza Salleh, Darren Ashley, Decimal, and Mama Sons. I know that it will be a fun, hip, and trendy charity event! Because it fuses charity with creativity:)
Instead of forgetting, or worse still not caring, why not....attend the Beatles Unplugged with your friends, partner, or family....not only do you get to enjoy great music and party with you friends, you are actually doing something GOOD for the society!!!!
Tickets are priced at RM20(very affordable) per entry and RM250 for a table(guessing the table fits 10)...and the best part is that all of the proceed goes to the Malaysian Red Crescent society.... Plus, if you don't trust Project Flip...go to their website....all of their budget and overall profit will be posted on it at Project FLIP!Transparency is always good.....*thumbs up*
Don't miss out the opportunity to help!!! Its at 7pm this Saturday(May14)!! You can contact Ash at 0162726313 or Ernest at 0102261616 for tickets.
P.S., I am really glad that readers out there see me as an avenue to publicize events on any charity endeavors! I will definitely support your event if it's non-profit and if it's for a good cause:)
