Instead of a Give Away
I just realise that this would be my last post of year 2014. It is an awesome year filled with so much up and down. Being a control freak, I try to plan and document every single thing. Being human, sometime I forget that Allah is the best planner of all.
Many things that I planned trough out the year didn't go the way I expected it to be. Some turn out to be worst some turn out to be such a pleasant surprise.Well, that is how life goes. We never know..
Talking about things we never know, I am very touched and saddened after what happen to our country recently. Like seriously.. here I am whining about my plan n goals while other lost their house, personal belongings, and even love ones with a blink of an eye.
So couple of months back, I was approached to host this giveaway by Bloom & Grow to create awareness of their new fb page (link) (do drop by to give them some support!). they also would like me to try out their grobag and I am very lucky that they are so generous willing to set aside 20 units of grobag for my readers to try out as well. Each costing around RM 179 and above. So the plan is to write the post of review and include the giveaway at the bottom of the post.
Since it is the biggest giveaway collaboration I ever received at one go, (Total value of RM 3.8k) I am very excited about it. Honestly, hoping that it would help to increase my readership as well as to lead more traffic to the sponsor page. I wrote few draft.. and then completed the photoshoot with Sofea. (not an easy task she is very active). To be blunt, I am ready to hit the publish button any minute.
Then it hit me, omg all these horrible flood is happening. I saw my fb timeline and saw all the updates. I am speechless. A big number of toddlers n babies where affected by the flood. Most of them dont have enough clothes, blankets or food.I have a strong feeling that they would appreciate those grobag the most as it is raining day and night over there. Plus the grobag will atleast help them to feel warm T.T
So, I do what I have to do. I decided to send an email to the PR (she was on vacation, gosh felt bad for disturbing). Apparently, God plan work in such a gracious way. I got a big green light. OMG! I felt so happy at that time. I packed the stuff and get my brother to help and accompany me to the collection center.
I truly understand that my contribution is not much, all I did was send an email then arrange for logistic. But one of the main reason I am sharing this out is because I’m hoping that it would encourage others to help as well. At first, I was hesitating to publish this post. Well, I am scared of people’s perception. I don't want them to think “if so nice no need to tell whole world of your good deeds”.You are right, I am not a very nice person. I am just a human with lots of flaws.
Apart from that, since I already do lots of pre-hype of the giveaway.. I don't want my readers to be wondering what happening to the products and why haven't I launch the giveaway. This is the reason why. I believe they need it more, and I hope we are on the same page.
If you have some stuff to contribute, do so. You never know when the table will turn and at that moment, you would appreciate any kind of help. By the way I snap a picture of crucial items needed that were listed down by the iam4u and if you are wondering where to drop it off, you may do so using the address below :
Kompleks Sukan Bukit Kiara
3959, Jalan 1/70d, Bukit Kiara
60000 Kuala Lumpur
GPS: 3°08'20.4"N 101°38'50.0"E
Do take note that many other places like masjid and ngo even public people (make sure you check the source, dont simply give cash to unknown people, make sure it is a genuine body) are putting effort and still arranging for flood aid. You may just search and it will show
Thank you for spending time to read this post. I appreciate it and hope that you had a great day. Happy New Year to all Hope that the new year will bring you lots of happiness and success.
