We can help to lessen the pain.

Friday, July 4, 2014

On 25 May, I put up my complimentary ticket to InvestX Congress 2014 for auction, promising that the proceeds would go to a charity of my choice. Within 2 days, I closed the auction after receiving the top bid of $99 which was equivalent to the regular price of the ticket.

Now, here is the proof that I have made a donation with the money received:

When a reader asked me on FB which charity would I be making a donation to and whether it would be to NKF, I told him I would be making a donation to KDF. It was the first time he heard of KDF despite the fact that it was set up in 1996.

KDF is a not-for-profit and independent charity to help needy kidney patients who lack funds for dialysis and also to find a cure for kidney diseases. They work together with NUS in their search for a cure for diabetes. I like the vision of a world where people no longer have to suffer from diabetes.

Learn more about KDF:

There are people who are forced to sell their cars and valuables due to financial hardship. There are people who suffer financial hardship but have nothing valuable to sell. For these people, if financial hardship is due to health reasons which prevent them from being gainfully employed, we should offer a helping hand, if possible.

And if you drive and have a couple of hours to spare on weekends, NKF has a program that can use your help in delivering dry food stuff (canned food, rice, beehoon, oil) to needy patients who have difficulty moving around.

You only have to do it every other month.
