FUND BAKE 2014

Friends of Care Givers Group,

Every year we have a fund raising event to help raise a little fund to help us reach out to more poor children for our charity trips to somewhere in Asia. But the main purpose is to actually keep in touch with our friends, relatives and colleagues who have been supporting us for our projects since we started CGG in March 2009. We find such activities very meaningful amidst our busy lives and also to help those who are new to us understand our work better.

Fund Bake 2014 is back again for the 3rd time after previous 2 successful attempts and this year we will be holding the event in a proper baking school with proper baking facilities at Bakerz@Work! So what’s on the menu? Check out the details below:

All Booked!

Hey guys!
All our flight tickets, lodging and transportation are booked for this year’s trip to Chiang Rai! Total expenses per pax excluding food and shopping is around S$760 and all are paid for by our own members, just to be part of something meaningful that CGG is committed to do annually.

This year so far we have only 9 participants as most of our regular members have their own commitments. However I have a couple of friends from Chiang Rai itself whom will be joining us there. Nevertheless, it’s gonna be a fruitful trip and we are so looking forward to it. Will be meeting up sometime next week to work on the programs while we are there. Just waiting for our friends to get back on the wish list and demographics of the kids there to better cater to them.

At the same time, we will be having another fund raiser event this year sometime end Nov. Yes it is our popular Fund Bake event again and this year we will be holding it in a proper baking environment, and learning from an artisan baker with many years of experience! We shall reveal the item that we’ll be learning to bake once the venue is confirmed! Looking forward to everyone’s support on this!

Alrighty gonna run, stay tuned to more updates sometime this weekend!

God bless,
Big Roy

Members Meeting Cum Dinner

As our members are all so busy with our working lives, we finally met up and nailed down this year’s annual charity trip and we are heading to Chiang Rai! Chiang Rai is the northern part of Thailand and is a place where the famous Golden Triangle is. Many children are from across the borders of Myanmar and Laos, and are of hill-tribe origins. Most of them do not have Thai identity, hence when they grow up, they will have difficulties finding a job, let alone of having the right to own a house. Hence hopefully we can help by donating foodstuffs and necessities to make their lives a little better.

We have also identified 3 homes/shelters to visit, bring joy to them and spreading the love. We will be confirming with these homes soon on their availability during the period which we will be flying up.

We will also be having a fund raising event to not just raise funds but also to keep in touch with our friends who have been supporting CGG for the past 6 years! We shall be posting the event soon! Stay tuned!

Nevertheless, despite my tired mind and aching body from work, I would still wanna write this post and thank all members who have turned up for the meeting and dinner, who have thought of all matters with regards to the trip and our local projects. Thank you for your support all these years and keeping this group going strong! All these from the bottom of my heart!
