EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2016
This year, my school is hosting an major annual charity event, where each year the whole school gets outdoors to run laps of the school (approx. 1 mile per lap) for charity. The money from this event will go to three different charities. This year our fundraising one of the focus from this event will be on the use of computers and technology in the developing world. The first charity that we will be supporting is a charity group looks to provide computer stations in deprived areas of the world, as well as personal tutelage for the students in receipt of the computer. Additionally, we plan to continue our long-standing partnership with a local school in Malaysia. In keeping with the theme, we are hoping to help fund the purchasing of projectors for the school, to use with the white boards that were purchased in previous years. Not only that, we will also be supporting a charity that aims to aid cancer victims in Malaysia. The remainder of the funds raised will go into the school’s Charity and Outreach fund where we will endeavour to use the funds to support other organisations in a similar way. We hope to raise as many money as possible. I personally believe, that coming from a society, you have to always pay it forward to other people. What you will realise one day is that the ability to help other people is actually a blessing given from God. We are given the capabilities to help those who are in need and we should seize this opportunity. I hope that a lot of people will help us make a change to these people's life. A small change is the key to a brighter tomorrow.
