Our Malaysia governor-elect Simpson Tan threw a birthday party and invited all his friends to celebrate with him. He asked his friends not to bring him any birthday presents, but instead to donate generously towards The Eliminate Project. He collected RM50,000 (US$16,250), and he pledged additional funds, bringing the total gift to US$25,000 for The Eliminate Project. What a great way to celebrate a meaningful day by saving or protecting more than 14,000 lives.
Are you celebrating a birthday soon? Consider asking for donations instead of presents like Governor-Elect Simpson to save lives around the world!
