Ice-Cream 4U Charity Concert @ Stadium Badminton Cheras, Jalan Cheras, Kuala Lumpurd_luaz
The idea for the ‘Ice-Cream 4 U Charity Concert’ originated from both Lee Sinje and Yi Jet Qi. Both the artistes had an unforgettable experience of watching a video clip on YouTube that showed the smile children had on their faces while merely just eating ice-cream. The simple innocent joy and the genuine sound of children’s laughter touched them. Hence that is how the idea of having a Concert to benefit children homes and giving ice-cream to these underprivileged / handicap children / orphans to put a smile on their faces came about!
Joining hands and coming together for the very 1st time in the name of charity, love and for a worthy cause, the `never-been-seen-before’ impressive artistes line-up includes Lee Sinje, Yi Jet Qi, Fish Leong, Ah Niu, Nicholas Teo, Kit Teo, Manhand, Dave Pei Jie and Kah Jun with Taiwanese singer Valen Hsu as Guest Artiste. KK Wong (of 988 K6 duo) and Jiang Pei Pei will be hosting the Concert.
All donations and funds raised will be in aid of PUSAT PENJAGAAN KANAK-KANAK CACAT TAMAN MEGAH (PPKKCTM), which runs a Home for the disabled and the underprivileged. (http://www.ppkkctm.org/). All proceeds will be used towards the building and expansion of the Home.
There are 138 children of all races living at the Home, ranging in age from 7 months to 55 years old and coming from all over Peninsular Malaysia. About a 100 of these children are disabled with various disabilities such as Down syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy, global delay, muscular dystrophy, dwarfism, apeth syndrome, neunan syndrome, hyper activity, physical challenges, intellectual disabilities as well as speech, audio and visual impairments. The rest are normal children who come from broken, abused or single parent background. 67 are school going children; of these 25 are normal children and goes to normal schools, one is in nursery while the rest are in a special school.
Although the Home is doing yeoman service, this decentralized system of housing its residents in different buildings is not in the best interest of the residents and has caused other difficulties for the administration. In January 2009, the Home fully settled the deal for a piece of land to build a one-stop centre projected to cost RM 5.5 million. The Home currently has RM1.5 million raised to put towards this project with RM4 million left to be raised so financial assistance is needed to remedy this pressing issue.
Needless to say, PPKKCTM do not possess the financial strength to settle this problem alone. Therefore, they have launched an all-out fund-raising drive and welcome any form of assistance from kind hearted souls.
Charity and Music undoubtedly go hand in hand for we believe that the power of music is universal and cuts across all barriers. We hope that everyone can join us for this charitable cause while being entertained. Come and have a great fun-filled night with your family and friends at the Concert!! A Charity Concert not to be missed!!
