I am going bald for Go Bald campaign! Wheee!


I am thinking to go bald again!

First time I shaved my head (actually the 2nd time, 1st time was in Form 2 when I was a rebel HAHA! but considered 1st time with a valid reason)  was when BN lost its 2/3 majority in the 2008 General Election. I pledged to shave my head if BN did not get its 2/3 majority, and 3 days after the result of GE2008 was announced, I went bald.

I think I look kinda cute bald HAHA!

For the past 2 years, my other nickname is Botak Bong.

This time, I am planning to go bald again and it is for a good cause. It is to raise donation for the Sarawak Children’s Cancer Society (SCCS) through its Go Bald campaign.

From its Facebook page,

Mission:

“Help Kids Fight Cancer, Go Bald!”

In our first Go Bald campaign last year (the first such event in Malaysia, we may add!), we raised a grand total of RM215,760.37! We’re not sure who donated the thirty-seven sen, but thanks all the same!

This includes a massive RM65,000 raised by Kuching’s own Kenny Sia, and an additional RM20,000 from a generous Dato who also stepped up to have his head shaved.

Our goal this year – beyond raising awareness of childhood cancer, and offering moral support – is to raise RM1,000,000 for a brand new SCCS centre that will offer an unprecedented level of care and support for child cancer patients in Sarawak:

• Specially-designed accommodation for visiting patients and their families. Some of these families have to travel for 7 hours just to treat their children!

• Improved amenities, facilities and resources for the treatment of cancer patients. We want to make their stay in Kuching as productive as it is positive.

Products:

Cancer Exhibition: 10-15 May 2010

Go Bald Day: 16 May 2010

I just tweeted this an hour ago, and did the same on Facebook.

As the time of writing, 13 tweeples have pledged a total amount of RM925.00 for this campaign!! Awesome!
