Blog4FT Cares

If previously Blog4Ft is all about promoting Federal Territories of Malaysia via a blogging contest (organised by Ministry of Federal Territories and Urban Well-being), this time around it is all about charity. Having objectives such as highlighting charities and charitable activities in the Federal Territories, Blog4FT today launched a program called Blog4FT Cares to raise awareness of selected Causes.

The focus previously was on the blogosphere but this time, the Ministry will engage millions of Malaysian Facebook and Twitter users. Three national Celebrities will play key roles in this campaign. Each will start a Special BlogforFT Cares! Facebook Page and promote this amongst their fans with the aim to collect maximum number of Facebook “Like”. When a Special Page collects 10,000 “Like”, the Program’s Corporate Sponsor will donate RM25,000 for the Cause; when the Page collects 20,000 “Like” and above, RM50,000 will be donated for the Cause.

So let us all contribute the the causes! All you have to do is click on FB pages below:

  1. Siti Nurhaliza:  The importance of empowering the urban poor in the Federal Territories through vocational training.
  2. Upin & Ipin: The need to increase awareness about the danger of Dengue fever to residents of the Federal Territories.
  3. Steve Yap: The need for society to be involved in greening the environment through Tree Planting Programs.

Here are some picture’s of the launching of the program of Blog4FT Cares by the Ministry of Federal Territories and Urban Well-being at BSC, Bangsar, 11am today.

October is the Breast Cancer Awareness Month

It is believed that 2/3 of all cancers can be prevented by maintaining a healthy lifestyle. For cancers that can be detected early, there is over an 80% chance of surviving the cancer. Cancer detected early can save lives.

You can lower your risk for cancer by choosing a healthy lifestyle. This means:
* Don’t smoke
* Be active every day
* Keep to a healthy weight
* Eat plenty of vegetables, fruit and cereals
* Eat food low in fat, sugar and salt
* Keep your alcohol intake low
* Be sun aware

I’m going pink this month to help create awareness about breast cancer.

And for that particular reason, I am calling out to you to help click the banner in thebreastcancersite.com. Your click helped another woman in need get a free mammogram. Just follow the link of below banner and click on the pink button:

A cute letter!

I received a surprise in the mailbox yesterday!

A letter from my son! Lol!

So let’s see what’s inside…

…two cards, err I mean one and a half card that my son wants me to take notice of!

Yassin thought that we can try to save Dodos but little did he knows that Dodos had become extinct before 1700; the last Dodo died a little more than a century after the species’ discovery in 1581.

Anyway, we can try to save the latter. You can ‘adopt’ a rhino HERE.

Note to Yassin: Thanks baby for the reminder!

Green Police

I was just keeping myself updated about ‘green’ news when I came across about Green Police and thought that I share it with you. Do you know who are the Green Police?

Officially,  it is a nickname to a branch of local law enforcement in charge of ensuring environmental protection laws are followed. But unofficially, it is a term referring to citizens who report environmental violations to their local law enforcement agency, or enforce environmental rules at special events. The term green police has also been co-opted by companies and groups to promote environmentally-themed agendas and ad campaigns.  It can also be referred to environmental monitors hired for public or private events.

At the Glastonbury Festival, festival organizers are hiring “Green Police” to spread environmental awareness and encourage environmentally responsible behavior. Their duties include making sure festival goers dispose of their cigarettes properly, not urinate in the water and shrubbery, and pick up and recycle their trash.

Now, this is very good and I hope that our local Green Police will enforce similar effort to address our huge volume of rubbish during festivals.
