Finally after few months, all the hard work bear fruitful rewards. We managed to raise more than 2 million 10 cent coins. All the organization and children did so much to make this extravaganza to be a successful one. ( Special thanks to UPF, Red Cresent Society and Perpaduan Tabika.)

The journey to the road of success was not easy at all. Alot of barriers and obstacles had been encountered. However, with strength, determination and hard work, everything was overcome.

There was a few touching stories throughout this campaign. I remembered there was one primary school children who donated all his pocket money into the donation box. Then, his teacher asked him: " What are you going to eat if you donated all your pocket money." Without a second thought, he answered: " Teacher, it is alright if i don't eat, and the children in Gaza need this more than me." The teacher broke into tears after telling us this story.

There was another story where these 2 little girls went around collecting donation and being bullied and laughed by their friends. However, they did not give up and they managed to raise RM70 in a day.

As a token of appreciation, all the ones who involved in this campaign was invited to this Appreciation Ceremony. It was held in University of Malaya.

Our prime minister's wife Datin Rosmah was the special guest. The host for the event was Dato Lokman. He was also being appointed as the ambassador of peace. Whereas, I was invited to sing and was appointed as the Ambassador for the power of 10 cents. Besides that, there were a few other performances by the members of Red Cresent Society and also kids from Perpaduan Tabika.

This was a memorable event. This had not only helped to raise money for the Gaza children but also showcased Malaysian children’s willingness to help children in other parts of the world, especially in war-torn areas.

The idea of 10 cents captures our attention. I must say, this is a commendable project. It is amazing with what 10 cents can do, the small act that can turn into huge momentum shift and gradually transforms our hearts throughout the journey of living for greater good, and that happens right from young.

Keep up the superb job.
