A Gift Of Life (Part 5) - Thank You

 We are two more days away from the marrow drive and it is certainly very heartening to see so many good  people out there stepping forward and landing a hand in whatever way they are able to provide.

My personal thanks to the following people who have graciously agreed to help spread the word on their respective blogs.

For those who are going down, my gratitude again. Do make it a point to say Hi to Chrissy. Tell her, I sent you. Tell her, her "nearly-brother-in-law" sent you. =)

Anyway, this is my last Chrissy entry before we approach the main event itself and I will like to show an email update pertaining to the marrow drive.

Subject: Updates - Gift of Life this Sunday!
Hi All,
Thank you for your support and well wishes for Chrissy.
Don't forget to come this Sunday, 5th November from 10am to 4pm to Aramsa - The Garden Spa at Bishan Park II, 1382 Ang Mo Kio Ave 1. Please take down my number in case you get lost : Jolene 9187 3888.
If you are worried about what they will do to you on Sunday, don't worry, it will only be a finger prick. A friend of mine, Kar Keat, has donated his bone marrow before, and he is coming over to share his experience with us ! He will be there from 11am to 1pm so if you are worried about what one has to do or go through for an actual bone marrow donation, please come during this time to ask him questions!
By the way, there is no obligation to sign up if you do not want to. Just come and learn more about Bone Marrow Donation, and we would have taken our cause one step further. Monetary donations are also welcome! There will be a charity box from the Bone Marrow Organisation there.
Lastly, Aramsa has very kindly offered us $30 discount vouchers for people interested to try out their treatments. A regular Aramsa Massage or a Swedish Massage costs $94.50 before discount, for a one hour treatment. So for $64.50, you get to experience their 'spa-in-a-park' concept. However, you are advised to book an appointment as soon as possible as slots are limited. Tel: 6456 6556
Chrissy and myself are really looking forward to seeing as many people as possible, so do try to reach out to all your friends and come on over to Bishan Park! Activities you can do there: Bring your family, have a picnic, have lunch at the restaurant, get a massage, Fishing, Roller Blading, Cycling and even Kite Flying!
See you all there, and please pass the word around even if you cannot come.
Mobile: 9187 3888

Bus Services:133, 136, 169 and 262

It costs nothing to bring warmth to a human's heart.
Hope the turnout will be good...

Spinnee: I hope so too. I too agree that sometimes the smallest gestures reaps the biggest reward. 

Sunflower: Ahh.... more people to go up to Chrissy and say the secret password "'Nearly bro-in-law' sent me". hahahaha.... It would be most amusing to have a bunch of people coming up to a bewildered Chrissy and saying the password. LOL.
