Paint it Purple

There is a party going on and it's going to be purple!! and no, Barney will not be making an appearance. OK,'s the deal :

It started when the very fabulous and creatively talented Dinah called out for a group contribution to our very own Women's Aid Organisation (WAO). This was in response to a campaign to raise US$1 million for WAO Malaysia (in which you ladies have contributed to) & the USA’s National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) initiated by the Pixel Project (an innovative virtual volunteer-led non profit organisation using social media and online strategies to turbo-charge global awareness about violence against women while raising funds and volunteer power for the cause).

I am all for a group thing - you bring the ham, I'll bring the cheese, no sweat. Especially, when it's for a good cause...and especially, if I don't have to do the lugging about hehehhe...I'm kidding!!!.

Dinah was kind enough to co-ordinate with WAO and then, collate all the items from willing and helpful donors while having to work and juggle the house. Didn't I tell you she's also amazing?! The items were sent yesterday and shortly after that, I received (as the others who have donated would also have received) an email from the organization thanking me for the contribution I made. I felt touched and you know, they didn't really have to thank me because I compared to what I have done, they have done (and still doing) much much more. My contribution pales in comparison to what the volunteers and the staff who are so dedicate in their work to help these women and children.

Anyway, just so you know, the Pixel Project has also kickstarted Paint it Purple, which is essentially a campaign against Domestic Violence on Women by raising global awareness about Violence Against Women through a Social Media campaign that will “paint” the internet purple and Raising funds and grassroots advocacy for The Pixel Project and our partners through the global “Paint It Purple” party.
