Cyber Charity

I am involved. Deeply involved. Not with one but two younger men. Mesti ada yang dok ingat ni amboi makcik ni perasan tahap dewa ni. Dah tua-tua pun dok involve dengan orang muda lagi kan, kan... What is wrong with that? Yes, they are younger, way too young for me. But with the current "technology" in cosmetics and ubat-ubatan tradisional, older women can be and feel younger. Kacip Fatimah ada, Mas cotek ada, botox ada, spa dan saloon pun banyak kan, :-)
Apa pulak aku ni melalut ni!!!!.

Back to my involvement with these younger men. The first one I have met in person about 2 years ago. A talented person, always winning awards for his creativity. He works amongst the stars. So, getting to know him is like a gateway to rubbing shoulders with the stars. That make me "perasan" that maybe one day, I would bump into him again with some stars in his company. Isyy makcik ni tak habis nak glemer!!!

The second one I have not met personally. Spoke to him a few times on the phone. Kacau him once in a while (I can hear him say, "ye lah tu!!") on the YM and be his regular sembang kaki at his tag.

Why am I involved with them? Why are they so attractive? Well, everyone has their charm. Something that make each one of us stand out in a crowd. Something that others see as being attractive about each one of us. But, these two gentlemen (kena tengok balik buku kat blog MA tu for definition ni :-), they have something in common. They have big hearts. Big charitable hearts.

The first one started a pledge your donation campaign 6-7 months ago. I pledge some money too. The campaign ended January 2006. I have called and spoke to him, about the wish list etc. I know he is very very busy. Until today, I still do not know what to do with the money. I have planned to make some bedsheets for the Rumah Amal Hashimiah which the money supposed to be used for. I am waiting for him to tell me how many sheets are required. I cannot wait anymore lah, I still have the money with me, not only mine but from the tabung ayam as well.
So Badrul, I am not waiting for you to tell me how many, I will buy the materials and make them this weekends. If there are extras, will give you to add to buy other stuffs.

The second one, so far has sent me money 3 times through western Union. Percaya pulak dia kat aku ni kan entah, entah aku ada ulterior motives, ahak... ahak.. The first recipient is a blogger who was operated due to a growth found in her womb. The second recipents are 3 young children whose father has added another set of mouth eventhough he is materially incapable of providing for more. The money was used to buy school uniforms and pay for the fees. The third time he sent me money is for the first one's donation scheme. The money is still in my handbag unused. Sorry Joe, it's not my fault. It will be used in due time. Right now, we are working on ways to get some money to help the Indon ladies in London who just had kidney operations through Kak Teh (Another charitable blogger, MasyaAllah)

My 2 special men friends have in their own way had invoked something in me. I have NOT been very charitable, being involved with them, make me feel slightly shameful. So even when I have committed a meager of my income to the good cause, through them I can do a little bit more. Not just money but also the energy and the time taken for that purpose. Kalau tak ada duit nak sumbang at least aku boleh bantu dengan "urat ghiang" (cakap orang utara, maksudnya tenaga) aku. Nak ambik duit dari Western Union nak kena tahu bank mana, nak kena tahu apa maklumat yang perlu. Manalah tahu kut-kut nanti anak-anak aku ada yang nak belajar kat overseas kan dah senang. I did some "findings" as well. Dok cari jalan yang lebih murah untuk transaksi hantar duit ni. Even though there is a Moneygram agent in Malaysia, but unfortunately, the agent only know how to send the money overseas. They have never received any from overseas. Haah lah, I have to agree "kampung" sangat service tu rasanya. Any suggestions from anyone from the banking industry?

What is beautiful about my involvement is that, this is happening in the cyber world. A cyber charity of some sort. Another positive effect of blogging. And, I like being involved like this. Thank you my dears for giving me the opportunities.
