  1. I donate some money to charity online annually. I notice that in recent years, donations are centralised under a non-govt portal called "giving.sg" This year, I realized they even require to create account and login before can donate. Somehow I have a pretty uneasy feeling about these folks. Wonder if any one knows any good and deserving charities that I can donate to without going these this "giving.sg"?
  2. Cars and cycling seldom go well together. But in the case of Skoda, cycling and bicycles are rooted deep in its heritage. In fact, Skoda first produced bicycles before cars. It is still deeply passionate about it - Skoda even has a website all about cycling, called We Love Cycling. Plus, Skoda has supported other cycling races around the world, such as the Tour de France, and the Titan Challenge - a six-day mountain bike stage set in the desert. Deserts are certainly tough for vehicles, not just cyclists. But Skoda has in fact completed the Dakar Rally with a Kodiaq support car, too. Skoda pushes on with two wheels closer to home. This time, it is for the Charity Bike ‘n’ Blade, a cycling event with a charitable cause. Charity Bike ‘n’ Blade started out in 2005 from a group of passionate cyclists. The 12th edition this year will benefit The Salvation Army’s Peacehaven Nursing Home. This is Skoda’s second partnership with the Charity Bike ‘n’ Blade as Official Safety Car. The six support cars for the ride included the Karoq, the Kodiaq, the Superb, two Octavias and of course, the hot-blooded Octavia RS245. Setting off on Friday morning, we headed to Ipoh for a night's rest, as we will be heading up to Cameron Highlands in the wee hours of Saturday. Some 50 cyclists will be taking part in this leg up, Cameron, with a distance of about 61km. Now, 61km might not seem like a challenge (we're not cyclists), but with over 1,000m of upward elevation to the top, and Malaysia's tropical climate, it is a pretty daunting task. The six support cars will be tasked with different duties. The Kodiaq would be at the back of the cycling pack, working as the sweeper. The Octavia RS, on the other hand, was the lead car, which included running up and down the hill in search of cyclists who needed help, or water and bananas. The lead car would raise signals to the nearest available support Skodas and appropriate team to leap forward and assist. Therefore, the performance of the RS really came in handy. The Karoq, Octavia and the Superb would then carry out duties ranging from medical and technical assistance to distributing food and drinks along the route. Our chariot of choice was the Skoda Superb 1.8 TSI Ambition. From what we saw, Skodas were perfect for the tasks on hand. The Kodiaq, with its higher ride height, allowed the volunteers to have a better view of the road and cyclists ahead of them. Volunteers driving the Kodiaq also told us that the height also gave him the added advantage of being at eye level with the cyclists, whenever he needed to pull up to their side and convey a message to them. Plus, with more than an adequate performance from the turbocharged engines, all Skodas were able to make the climb up and down Cameron quickly to attend to the cyclists' needs. The Superb was perfect for us, too, as its performance and comfort-oriented suspension meant that we could quickly get to where the action was. The practicality of Skodas across the range played a big part. While roof and bicycle racks can be fitted to all cars, Skodas excel in interior space, too. So all the cars could fit big ice coolers for drinks, including spare bicycle wheels, cycling gear, tools and first aid supplies if there was a need for it. By 11:00 am, some riders had in fact reached the endpoint, and most of the cyclists made it to the lunch stop by noon. With the help of Skoda’s support vehicles and volunteers, all of the cyclists made it up. From our short experience covering a cycling event up close and in action, the Skodas proved to be versatile, reliable and always ready to go. It thus also makes sense that Skoda has been the official vehicle for one of the biggest cycling events in the world, the Tour de France, for the 16th year running.

    Charity Awareness and Help Needed

    Most of us here in this forum are blessed with good jobs, able to afford car and above average salary. I believe in 取之于社会, 用之于社会. Whatever we earn from the society, we should give some back to the society. Although there are many charity organisations like NKF, Cancer society, Old folk home, hospital getting Government funding and also public donations. Some poor and elderly people still fall thru the cracks and not able to get any help from any Government agency and most Charity organisations. I am not related to any of the charity organisations but like to bring awareness to one, Ray of Hope https://rohi.sg/case/list which is less well known to the Public. This is also the purpose of this thread. Many of the cases at Ray of Hope is much more urgent and serious than Give.Asia. Some genuine & urgent cases as below: https://rohi.sg/case/details/Your-donations-will-give-Abi-hope%21 https://rohi.sg/case/details/Save-my-wife-who-is-suffering-and-diagnosed-with-Stage-4-cancer- https://rohi.sg/case/details/HOPE-will-keep-her-going I hope people here can help to donate any amount to help these people and cases at https://rohi.sg/case/list. $10, $20 means a lot to these people. Thanks https://rohi.sg/case/details/HOPE-will-keep-her-going The Struggle Previously, ROHI has helped raise $1,000 for the living expenses of 78-year-old Madam Yang (https://rohi.sg/case/details/Bring-hope-to-an-elderly-grandmother). Although we were heartened to hear that the family is now reunited after her daughter’s discharge from the halfway house, there are more issues for Madam Yang to be worried about moving forward. Madam Yang’s health has also taken for a dip and she still suffers from the side effects of her medications. She often suffers from swollen joints as a result of her arthritis. Recently, her right toe was also amputated as there was a growth on it. The real struggle comes when Madam Yang, who is a Malaysian is not entitled for medical subsidies and grants. Madam Yang told us that even with the $600 Guardian Care Assistance that she receives every month, the assistance is insufficient to cover the family’s expenses, especially when she needs to visit the hospital multiple times a month. Quoting Madam Yang, “To me, receiving treatment is never a priority. I would rather spend the money on my family”. Help Needed – Give Hope When the case workers first met Madam Yang, she told us how helpless she feels, especially when she is not in the best state of health to work. Apart from her long list of medical conditions that include severe arthritis, breathlessness, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and suspected digestive and throat issues, she is also the main caregiver to her 14-year-old grand-daughter as her daughter is struggling with stage 2 leukemia and depression. Even with so much to handle, a resilient Madam Yang chose to remain positive and remains positive for her family. Financial Breakdown ROHI would like to raise $1,700 to help the elderly grandmother with her arrears (Medical, Town Council and SP Services - $450) and living expenses ($250 x 5 months). Payment for Madam Yang’s arrears will be made to the relevant agencies directly.

  9. Hi Bro and Sis I need some helps. I need some volunteers to deliver bags of groceries donations to some needy families. I have undertaken a charity drive for below organisation donating about 100-120 bags of free groceries to those families in need. Each bag is quite heavy so I need 15 drivers. You are welcome to sponsor more groceries bag value at SGD60. Currently about 100bags have been secured. Receipt will be given for tax rebate. I thought I can do this as a MCFer gathering. After doing this good cause of delivering, we can all gather and go for a simple lunch gathering. Maybe I can get a eating place to sponsor lunch. What do you guys think? If I cant get enough driver then I will have to seek alternative. Viable? Target date is March or April as Feb too rush. About Groceries-For-Families Every 2nd Friday evening of the month, volunteers gather at Children’s Wishing Well to pack groceries for more than 100 families. Delivery will take place the following day from 9 am to 12 noon. Seventy percent of our beneficiaries live in HDB flats that are 3-room or smaller. Grocery bags are distributed across the island with minimal geographical constraints. https://www.wishingwell.org.sg/programs/groceriesforfamilies/

    Hello fellow forumers I'm just doing a little shout out for fellow MyCarForum member skyryen. skyryen - a committee member of SUVEC - are organising a charity event together with Lion's Befrienders. skyryen humbly requests fellow forum members to join in as participants, and is also looking for donors/ sponsors for this upcoming meaningful event. The event entitled 'Charity Amazing Race 2013' is to support the lonely and needy Seniors. The event will be held on the 13th January 2013 and is organized by the Lions Befrienders Singapore (http://www.lionsbefrienders.org.sg/) and managed by SUVEC. The charity car rally, is much like a 'treasure hunt' (you know like national treasure) which requires participants to solve riddles and gather clues at checkpoints that will be spread across the island. The event is expected to draw approx 200 cars (approx. 1,000 participants) and there are attractive prizes to be won. Mr. Chan Chun Sing, Acting Minister for Social & Family Development, will be grace the event as the Guest-Of-Honour. Last year, a similar event attracted 110 cars with the event raising a total of about $285,000. This year, they are targeting $300,000 for the underprivileged Seniors. For details pertaining to the event, check out: Web: http://www.charityamazingrace.com FB: www.facebook.com/charityamazingrace Hope you guys support skyryen and his team's noble cause for the event.

  25. Ferrari has auctioned off the first US-spec Ferrari F12berlinetta, with the proceedings going to the the American Red Cross in aid of the victims of Hurricane Sandy. Sandy developed from a tropical wave in the western Caribbean Sea on October 22. It quickly strengthened and was upgraded to tropical storm six hours later. In the US, Hurricane Sandy affected 24 states with New York City badly flooded on 29 October. Power was also cut around the city. The event took place at the inaugural 2012 Formula One Grand Prix in Austin, Texas. Ferrari started bidding of the supercar at US$315,888 (S$386,173). The bidding ended at US$1.125 (S$1.375) million with the top bidder by the name of Larry Roth who hails from Long Island. Donors donated an additional US$345,000 bringing the total funds raised to almost US$1.5 (S$1.83) million. Larry will receive the delivery of Ferrari's most powerful road-going car in Q2 of 2013. Powered by a 6.3-litre V12 naturally-aspirated engine, the F12berlinetta sprints from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.1 seconds. The engine is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.
