Just received a cash donation via paypal from a friend in UK whom I haven’t seen for 2 decades! Yes, 20 years… And no, I’m not old… ;P. And also a couple of months ago, I’ve received 2 cash donations TTed into my personal bank account. Of which one is an old pal and the other, also someone whom I’ve not seen for more than a decade! 14 years to be exact! (Seriously, I’m not old! ;P) Anyways, on behalf of CGG and the kids we’re helping, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I’m totally elated that what we are doing touches the hearts of others, even though what we’re doing can be replicated by anyone. We don’t ask for donations openly and we don’t coerce anyone to donate either. Friends and relatives donate on their own accord and they trust that we’ll utilize the funds honestly in the best manner possible.
I’m feeling the Christmas’ spirit of giving is in the air, do you?
This is not the first time this is happening on our email account. Could be some hacking bot that is trying to access to our email or it could be someone who is trying to use our email account to request for ‘donations’. See an excerpt from gmail’s warning email:
We prevented the sign-in attempt in case this was a hijacker trying to access your account. Please review the details of the sign-in attempt:

I am seriously happy that CGG’s getting some recognition or rather attention from the world, definitely flattering. But using a charity group’s email for your unscrupulous intentions is totally not cool. A big ZERO in morality. If you need to hack, why can’t you be like Robin Hood? Why are you robbing the poor now? Are you sick? Leave us alone please!
This definitely brings to our attention that we should clarify a couple of issues here for all our family and friends:
- CGG will not request any monies/donations/funding from anyone via email. CGG will not be responsible for any monies/donations/funding lost via such scams.
- CGG’s activities will only be announced via this website officially, until further notice.
- In any case of doubts, please drop us a message on Facebook or Twitter or my personal email account limroyATgmail.com. (Bots pick up email addresses electronically if you use the ‘a’ with a circle around it symbol.)
Thank you all for your support so far in all our activities and we hope y’all can continue to support us in our efforts to help the unfortunate kids and indoctrinate them to ‘pass it forward’ when they grow up. Your support has helped us change lives in small but awesome ways! Looking forward to see you all in our upcoming Gourmet Coffee Appreciation Workshop event! (http://wp.me/E63z) That’s the best time to know us better and our missions/visions for our group! So sign up now before all the slots are filled up!
See y’all soon!
With loads of gratitude,
Big Roy ❤

So register your slot now and what better way to learn and contribute to charity at the same time! Please find the event poster link below for more details!
