Blackmores’ 80th year is a significant one, and the launch of the Blackmores 80 Deeds Campaign 2012 encourages all Malaysians to extend a kind deed to another Malaysian, be it a family member, colleague or even a ‘frenemy’, without expecting any form of compensation. 

The contest is very simple! 
Do your good deed, record it as a story/picture/video, 
upload to social networking sites and
submit it to 80years80deeds@blackmores.com.my

2. The contest is open to all Malaysians.

4. To be in the running for the 80 Best Deeds Awards, please notify Blackmores through email: 80years80deeds@blackmores.com.my

 And of course I fully support the Blackmores 80 Deeds Campaign 2012! 
Let's see what I did as a little contribution to the society...

More often than not, taking care of children and senior citizens can be an uphill task. 
Especially when looking after the handicapped and disabled children, 
it takes double the amount of patience and perserverance, 
and is definitely a challenge for me :) 

PPKKCTM is a home for the disabled ones, there I meet people of all ages--- from a little baby to an old folk. They may be imperfect, but the smiles on their faces tell me that they are surviving well, leading a happy life under the shelter :')

 
I was there with my friends to experience something meaningful in my life--- giving tuition to the young children aged ranging from 7 to 12 years. 5 of us, with the 2 caretakers are assigned to 2 children each, helping them with homework and then attending to their academic questions

After 2 hours of providing free tuition services to the kids, I actually feel that it boosts my mood! I feel this is much meaningful than I'd have thought.... maybe because I get to help people in need? 

The kids are quite diligent too, they are fast learners and the only reason I think why some may not excel in the studies is because they are lacking of coaching and proper guidance from tutors! And that's why I am here to help them :) 

To be honest, the kids do not have a complete library in the house. However, the incomplete reference books and insufficient reading materials do not deter them from striving for their studies! If you want to donate some books or computers, feel free to contact them. 

 After the tutor session, I manage to be friends with a few handicapped residents there. 
They are all so friendly, and I'd remember to bring along some gifts the next time I visit them! 

I am SO proud of them! 
Nothing is impossible if you place your best effort and hard work in it.

Regardless of how much effort you put to the community, each and every contribution counts :) 

Blackmores 80 Deeds Campaign 2012 Deadline is 4th December 2012, 
be quick and do your good deed now!

  5. This place brings back memories when I used to go on a weekly visit to help teach the children to sing for their concerts. Unfortunately the group that I was no longer exists but thanks for sharing. My 1st trip there made me cry uncontrollably when I reached home as I truly felt sorry for them but I'm glad it didn't stop me from my efforts! ;)
