RM200,000 here we come!

Achievable or not? Yes, I think it is and will be in our means, that is if all our 200 trekkers each collect RM1,000 from their friends, colleagues and relatives. Our humble beginnings of A Piece Of Hope (APOH) charity trek started with just 66 trekkers in 2007 and now grown to 200. This is the 5th chapter and we aim to be the best and most challenging of all.

Helping the less fortunate has been the heart beat of APOH and it will always be. Without it, climbing this mountain for the 12th time expecially for Jimmy Lim (our climb organiser), will have just stopped due to no purpose. This time around Persatuan Kanak-Kanak Istimewa Hulu Langat (PKKI) is the beneficiary of this charity trek. This is not a home but a centre that helps children with a wide range of physical and mental disabilities including cerebral palsy, hyperactivity, autism, blindness, down syndrome, global development delay, etc.

Agree with me or not, all of us got a soft spot for NGOs as they are self-reliant for their own expenses. Getting these funds in to support the running of it is tough. Even tougher is getting it on time to fund it. As they climb their 'mountain', we at APOH will climb ours. Which is easier? You can only answer it yourself.

With only 1 and 1/2 months to go before we ascend the mountain, we must utilise it wisely for maximum impact. No matter how much we can collect, may it be RM10 or RM10,000, we have at the least did something meaningful for PKKI.

An email detailing how the donation collection is to be done will be send out. In it a covering letter from PKKI and donation forms are attached as pictured above. If for any reason some of you did not receive these, please inform Jimmy or myself ( and we will gladly email you again. You can also download it by clicking the picture above.

Happy Soliciting Donation!
