The Pet Project Malaysia 2012

Getting Active to Help Save Animals

Recently, I volunteer myself to help out one of the charity project...Honestly speaking, I didn't know and did not see myself doing a charity..I mean I always have the intention of doing one, but there was never an action doing it....somehow when I heard about it, it just hit me, maybe I should do something to help out as well....
So walaa! I was the volunteer for the said event below, which is The Pet Project Malaysia 2012

It is pretty common where people refrain themselves to do charity work or going for charity because they think that they could not afford or so, so as well do not need to show out or do anything about it... Hence same goes to charity work for pets...people always have a negative thought about it.... But I think, as long as you have the intention to help, it is good enough for the cause...

The Pet Project Malaysia 2012
This event was held on 7th January, 2012 (11am to 11pm) at The British International School of Kuala Lumpur with the aims to raise funds and awareness through POSITIVE and PROACTIVE ways to create a platform for the public to learn more about the various animal welfare NGOs and the cause itself. 

The Pet Project Malaysia 2012 is a 12-hour “Get Active” marathon comprised of dance, fitness and sports-based classes taught by internationally renowned presenters along with performances from Malaysia’s most promising young talents. 

Aside from the Main Event (master classes and performances), participants could also visit sports carnival, playground, silent auction, rock climbing wall, rugby drills, a 2-hour workshop with Jojo Struys, self defense classes, animal welfare talks, football nutrition talks, face painting, Asia's largest football card montage, food & beverage stalls, sponsors & partners booths, merchandise booths and of course some NGO booths.

It was a total transparent event and all proceeds will be split to the smaller NGOs (such as Save a Stray, AnimalCare,  Paws, H.O.P.E., SPCA Selangor, Independent Pet Rescuers, MDDB,  KTAJ ( now known as SCRATCH) and Paws Mission) according to how many animals in their care and/or how much upgrading their facilities need. 

This project aims to be the first of a long-term goal to secure funds for animal welfare… they were looking at making this a world-class, top-notch, yearly event. 

Check out how was the venue like on that day itself....

Last but not least, the Asia's Largest Football Card Montage
AND yes I was part of it! haha
all you gotta do is...purchase a pack of Football Cards

Put some double sided tape at the back of it

and stick it just like that!

and the outcome will be like this picture below!

oh well that's all!

One thing I just gotta say out of this, don't refrain yourself and don't be scared to do charity...there is always a first step to help people, if you never ever want to step out you comfort zone to help people or even will just be like everyone else who keeps on complaining about mistreatment....

So, people...step out from your comfort zone and start giving back!

Let's make a different from now onwards
