Hi Jenny, I'm here again. I read about the Amitabha Centres on your blog. I'm have some used clothings and shoes, do you think they need it. Actually I have kept it aside to donate to charity house. Since I read Amitabha needs donation, so I thought I can donate to them.

Hi Sasha's mum,

Yes, you may contact the Kuala Lumpur branch at Jalan Kuchai Lama for the donations. They will be more than happy to have your items.

Thank you for the kind thought and you have a good day!

Hi Anonymous,

Don't be sadden by incidents like this. Many times along the way of my charity campaigns, I have seen more dishearten scenarios but what keeps me going on are the needy. They are the pitiful lots behind the scene who are waiting for people like you.

I always believe that we help others, Up There will know, don't forget, whatever we are doing, The god is watching!

Cheers my friend :)
