Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR) chips in to help A Piece Of Hope Chapter 2 charity climb

During the 3 days before our climb on 12th July 2008, UTAR management and students offered to help in our A Piece Of Hope charity climb. Donation boxes were placed all around their Section 13 campuses, Petaling Jaya.

Careful effort were made to place notices informing of this charity drive by those involved. Neatly decorated donation boxes were hand made to ensure all cash are secured properly. Although UTAR not long ago organized a donation drive for the China earthquake victims, the generosity of its students towards A Piece Of Hope charity climb for Pusat Penjagaan Kanak-Kanak Cacat Taman Megah were still genuine.

On 11th July 2008, Jimmy Lim, Foo Jong Wee, Janice Lim, Ting Ted Sun and UTAR management jointly opened the donation boxes. It took us almost 45 minutes to fully count all the cash which was donated. Finally tally of the cash donation stood at RM2,621 not bad for a 3 day effort by UTAR.

A word of thanks to:
Dr. Yeoh Suan Pow (Vice President)
Ms. Sum Kwai Seong (Manager, Department of Student Affairs)
and all students of UTAR who in some way or another donated or helped out.
