Honsbridge Charity Bazaar Makes a Difference

28 August 2016, Honsbridge International School Charity Bazaar

The atmosphere was lit at Honsbridge. Lit, noisy and tons of fun. That’s because the school had a charity fundraiser on that day. Honsbridge students & teachers, or Honnets, for short, were involved in lots of activities, games and food, mainly a creative flag competition and a soda stall serving lemonade & Infusion (you should’ve tried Infusion, it had a great mix of lemonade & grape!). The action picks up as the Honnets moved the fundraiser to the front door of the school. Loud music, cakes, cookies and tanks of lemonade & Infusion were involved.

On the other side of Dataran Sunway, at Sunway Giza, our other fellow Honnets, including acting Principal Alistair and marketing guy Alston, are busy raising awareness of Honsbridge’s educational benefits to passing Giza shoppers.

Both events coincide with the upcoming Merdeka celebrations, as they create unity among Honnets of varying races & ages from all over Honsbridge.

Thanks Honsbridge for selecting us as one of the beneficial NGO of this charity bazaar. Thumbs up to your fundraising effort and we hope that we can able to work again in the near future!

Mary Kay Staff Touched the Lives of Single Mothers

23 August 2016, Mary Kay Pink Changing Lives Single Mothers Makeover Session

Last Friday, Mary Kay staff and beautician came over to our centre to have a makeover session for 10 single mothers who are also beneficial families of HOPE worldwide Malaysia in the Food Distribution and Education Programs. It was such a heartwarming session as during the makeover session, the beautician get to listen to the single mothers' hard fighting stories and their bravery in breaking through different hardships to fend for their children's future.

This makeover session meant a lot for these Single Mothers. Taking care of themselves is the least thing these Single Mothers ever think about. They are the breadwinners and as well the nurturer for the families. They wear many hats and play different roles. Hence, Mary Kay would like to take this opportunity to have a relaxing moment for these Single Mothers. Yet most importantly, Mary Kay would like to deliver a very important message to these mothers - Confidence. Taking care of their appearance also mean to boost the self confidence in them. Mary Kay sees the strength in these mothers and would like to install and empower them with confidence to socialize, and as well carry themselves gracefully in their workplace.

Besides, Mary Kay also contributed groceries for these mothers. We also appreciate the rest of Mary Kay's staff volunteers joining the creative art activities in reaching out to the children of the single mothers.

Through this year Pink Changing Lives CSR Campaign, Mary Kay has raised a total of RM 30,000.00 for the operation cost of our organization community programs that focused on 3 core areas of the urban poor community - Health & Medical, Food & Nutrition and Education & Empowerment.

This is the 6th consecutive year of our CSR Partnership with Mary Kay Malaysia and we are so grateful for Mary Kay's support, trust and generosity in endeavor of helping the poor and needy that is align with our motto - Bringing HOPE, Changing LIVES.

Sun Life Malaysia Brighter YOU Organic Farm Outing educates children about Agriculture

06 August 2016, Sun Life Malaysia Brighter YOU Organic Farm Outing at GK Organic Farm

Last Saturday, Sun Life Malaysia organized an Outing to GK Organic Farm which is located at Dengkil to have a day of doing organic farming and agriculture with 20 children from HOPE worldwide Malaysia.

For these kids who lived in urban city, majority of them staying at PPR Flats, they rarely have their own space or land to plant vegetables and perhaps, they have never know the definition of harvesting, and as well, they probably have no idea where did all the vegetables, potatoes and lady fingers come from. This trip has really enlightened the mind of these kids. Together with the Brighter YOU Volunteers, the kids went bare-footed to the farm, and did farming under the hot sun, pulling out tapioca from the ground and they even tasted the organic honey.

Indeed, it was a harvestful day spent and once again, kudos to all fellow Brighter YOU volunteers and Thank YOU Sun Life Malaysia for brighten up our Saturday!
