A Knock to Remember!

It's that time of the year again to be ever generous in your givings but at the same time to enjoy time with your friends. Students from Taylors College is organising an event themed "A Knock to Remember" this coming weekend at the Apartments Downtown KLCC to raise funds for one of the shelter homes founded by Shelter Home.

Project KNOCK’s Empowering Urban Youth is a project organized by the KNOCKers. This project advocates awareness and understanding of the state these youths are in.

The students of this program aims to heighten awareness amongst other college students and young working adults regarding these youths and at the same time, raise enough funds to purchase better books and other equipments needed for these youths.

A couple of events were held to raise funds and awareness regarding the purpose and objectives about this project. Just to name a few, events such as the Mini K.O (Knocked Out) which was held to raise funds through the selling of food and beverages, KNOCK T-shirts and various games were held whilst voluntary donations were held at the same time. Awareness was created outside campus which is around the area of SS15 and class to class publicity where candies are sold to raise funds at the same time.

Just the other day, i was at TCPJ - attending the Mini K.O session! I tell you, these bunch are great! Wanna experience an event truly organised by students for students? Come on over this weekend!!!

The final event will be held on the 19th of October 2008 in The Apartment Downtown, KLCC from 7p.m. to 11p.m with the theme “A KNOCK to Remember”. All guests are expected to be dressed in formal attire.

I think it's refreshing and great to see young Malaysians take an interest in charity and spreading awareness of certain issues. But what I would like to know is what is Xfresh's view on the upcoming World AIDS Day (December 1st)? Will you guys be involved in helping spread the word on the dangers of sexually transmitted infections (STI) to the younger generation? I think it's something worth considering since safe sex practices and general knowledge on STI amongst the youth groups is fairly negligible and antiquated. Maybe you guys could help raise funds for HIV treatment centres or for research? You're quite the go getter. I'm sure you can use your influences to organise something to help the greater good.
