Peace to All

The death toll has reached 77,000 and its still climbing. It's so sad but I'm kinda glad that our Prime Minister has called the nation to call-off New Year celebration and in place to hold prayers.

I've kick started a donation drive at my office. A right time cos it's around pay day plus they've collected their claims cheque teehehehe... I can see the donation box is getting fatter and hopefully by next Wednesday it would have a substantial amount for us to channel to Red Cross and Mercy.

The avenues to donate locally are:

(1) Buddhist Maha Vihara
123 Jalan Berhala, Brickfields
50470 Kuala Lumpur
Tel: 03 2274 1141 / fax : 03 2273 2570

They're accepting canned/dry food, cloths, medicines, and money/cheque (write to "Buddhist Maha Vihara"). The first shipment out to India/Sri Lanka is tomorrow.

(2) The Star Malaysia


When we launched our appeal, The Star was working in association with the Malaysian Red Crescent Society and Mercy Malaysia.

Now, we would like to announce that we would also be working with another partner -- the National Disaster Relief Fund or Tabung Bantuan Bencana Negara.

The public can send their cheques to our headquarters at Menara Star, 15, Jalan 16/11, Section 16, 46350 Petaling Jaya, Malaysia or to our Penang office at The Star, 202, Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah, 11900 Bayan Lepas, Penang.

Cheques can be made out to:

Tabung Bantuan Bencana Negara, and mark “Untuk Mangsa Tsunami” on the back of the cheque;

Malaysian Red Crescent Society, and mark “Tidal Waves Victims” on the back of the cheque; or

Mercy Humanitarian Fund with “South-East Asia Earthquake Appeal” on the back of the cheque.
The Star will hand over the cheque to the respective organisations at the end of the campaign.
