Do Something For A Good Cause

“We want volunteering to become a lifestyle...." quote Tandemic Director, Kal Joffres. 

I like the sound of this statement. I believe just like me, there are many people out there who wishes to do something for a good cause, yet may not know how, where, when, what and who to give to. In fact, giving is better than receiving. Amen! 

A user friendly portal has emerged in the Malaysian community, which gives an opportunity to you, you and you who can spare your time, effort, skills and assets for a good cause. Featured in The Star newspaper (http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2012/6/13/nation/11467716&sec=nation) This online channel also involves celebrities such as Ben Ibrahim, Amber Chia, Daphne Iking and Azlan Iskandar, each giving personal support to chosen organisations as ambassadors.  

From the portal (http://beta.dosomething.gd/),  you can register to be a volunteer in respond to any calling of your choice or as an organisation, posting your need for volunteers. To date, there are 25 registered organisation such as Amnesty International Malaysia, Kota Kita, etc....

Take a look at some of the possible ways you can volunteer. It is so simple. Reinventing your existing skills to do good, now isn't that causing good to two birds with one shot? Cheesy, I know. They even have Pet Carnivals for you to volunteer in, how wonderful. 

So, what are you waiting for? Just do something for a good cause today :)
