Fundraiser Effort for Nepal Earthquake Appeal

Dear everyone,

I am raising funds for the Nepal Red Cross (British Red Cross) who are involved in the rescue and relief efforts in Kathmandu and Pokhara, Nepal. At this point, the 7.9-magnitude earthquake has taken the lives of almost 2000 people in Kathmandu, and 17 people have been killed in the Mount Everest avalanche.

I have just returned from Everest Base Camp and Kathmandu just 7 days ago. I have experienced the beauty of the country, the friendliness of the people and the humbling culture of the Nepali people. We have made good friends with our guides…who reported that their homes are “broken”.

Spending 2 weeks in the country with authentic and hardworking porters struck a chord in me. I feel compelled to support them with what I can do.

How Can I Contribute?

I would like to offer my book, “Lyn Kong’s Guide to Fitness for Busy People” for sale at RM40 per copy (Malaysia only). All proceeds will be channeled to the British Red Cross  which is my preferred charity organization for this matter.

Why I chose the British Red Cross? Here are the reasons:

  • They assist in identifying local hazards and increase awareness of the risks involved.
  • They provide information on how individuals, families and communities can protect themselves in the event of a disaster.
  • They develop and implement plans so the community is ready to respond to disasters.
  • They respond to disasters more efficiently by training first responders with skills in emergency first aid, and search and rescue.

I will truly appreciate any form of support or contribution in this matter.

What are the methods of contribution?

1) You can purchase my book with a minimum contribution of RM40. (Purchasing procedure listed below)

2) You can make a contribution to my Maybank account and I will channel it for you to the British Red Cross.
