Haiti Benefit Concert at HUC

Today, a kind soul from Kota Kinabalu, Sabah remitted RM700 to us to the HELP for Haiti Fund. Special thanks to Lynda Deidre for facilitating this. And we burned 100 CDs of “When Will the Suffering End” to sell during our Haiti Benefit Concert at HELP University College at RM5 apiece. We sold 57 CDs, with a value of RM285. We also had two collection boxes at HUC today, and we managed to count the cash in only one box – this amounted to RM1,660. We didn’t bring the key for the second box and so we can only count the cash tomorrow. But anyway, after today’s concert – the grand total of money in our HELP for Haiti Fund has now shot up to RM6,062. We just love these generous donors!

Today’s concert is a 6-hour extravaganza that featured songs, dances, poems, comedy, and magic that can perhaps be best described as indulgent entertainment. Both Red FM and Hitz FM dropped by to bring more color to this HELP event. It was special because we had performances from both HICT and HUC students (and not forgetting others too). In fact, we brought two busloads of HICT students to Damansara – and they sacrificed one day of classes to be there to support this event. To everybody who gave their time, energy and money – I say, thank you, thank you, thank you! I cannot possibly list all the people who did come forward to help us make this event a success – needless to say, I am grateful to each and every one of you for being there today!

I will post photos of this event as soon as I can – after all, a picture is worth a thousand words, right? I promise you, there will be lots and lots of pictures!
