Run For Funds 2006 - November Update

Well, it's the time of the year again where I will be blogging the whole week (starting 27 Nov 2006) about the RunForFunds Project leading up to the grand finale i.e. the Standard Chartered Marathon.

We will be going low key as far as fund raising is concerned since we still have money to last us for another year from last year's bumper. It goes further to show that we only raise money that we need and not have a fund raiser just for the sake of raising funds.

Anyway, our objective for this coming week is just to create awareness of this project and as usual, we hope that our work would inspire others to start their own projects.

So let me kick off this week with the November update and then we will go on to share our thoughts of what the RunForFunds Project mean to us.


Hi folks,

The Standard Chartered Marathon takes place on 3rd Dec (Sunday).

Unlike past years, my Superfriends and I will not be raising funds this year.
We have sufficient funds to roll over to 2007.
I will provide the reasons and the closing accounts for 2006 in a separate email.

This year, my friends and I will be running publicity in the blogsphere to raise awareness that each of us can make a difference to the under privileged.
Details will follow.

3rd Dec also marks the 5th anniversary of the Run For Funds (RFF) movement. 

To celebrate and thank Superfriends as well as sponsors for your support in the past 5 years, you'll be receiving your eye-catching, one-of-a-kind, bright orange (!)  RFF t-shirt.

Note 1: The monies for these t-shirts did not come from RFF funds as they are sponsored.

Note 2: I'd like to thank Patrick Lee for designing the t-shirt and Mark Sum for printing the t-shirts @ cost.

I hope the RFF t-shirts will serve as reminders that we all can do our own small part to effect positive changes in the lives of others.

I will leave you with this thought: How can you make a difference to someone in your life today?

have any of you read 'the tipping point' by Malcolm Gladwell? You should - it talks about how the many can make a difference.

Pam: I am aware of this book but haven't gotten round to it. I've got quite a backlog of reading to cover but I will get to this book eventually. :(

Akk: Oh good. Let's hope we can get the message out to as many people as we can.
Perhaps now is the time we stop expecting the Gahmen to do everything for us. It's time to take matters into our own hands and do them. By the next election, whichever candidate that we have collectively made redundant, it would be time for them to leave and let someone else more useful step up to the plate.

Hi Paddy: Thanks for the support!
"Post your link" --> Do you mean for me to post an ad over at your place to publicise RFF? What do I need to do?
