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:

Fund Bake 2014 – Learn to bake a Rainbow Cake!

This is a program with hands on and demo. We will be embarking on a journey to do 5 layers of different coloured moist butter cake and smother over with cream cheese buttercream, topped with yummy cheese frosting! Yes, you get to bring home what you made on that day! (Base on pairing basis)

Date: 30th November 2014, Sunday

Time: 2pm to 5.30pm

Venue: Bakerz@Work

Address: 605, Macpherson Road, #01-18 Citymac Industrial Complex, Singapore 368239 (Taiseng MRT station is just 3 mins walk away)

Project Chiang Mai A Success!

Project Chiang Mai was a success! Sorry it took us so long to update as it is always hectic the first quarter of the year and at the same time we were tabulating the figures while going about our full time jobs. Nevertheless, Project Chiang Mai was a blast and we not only reached out to the 170 kids from Baan Mae Ping, but also to 2 other villages and a physically impaired girl, who comes from a really poor family with only her mother trying to make ends meet while attending to her all the time. It is just depressing to witness such a case, so we discussed and donated 10000 bahts to them which is around S$400 but it can help them a lot to improve their living conditions. You guys can check out the pics if you haven’t at http://on.fb.me/1ib4jCT.

Anyways, as usual, every year we would wanna thank our wonderful donors who trust us and believe in what we do. Without them, it will be tougher for us to execute such projects. Please see the list of donors for 2013.

CHIANG MAI/PAI , HERE WE COME!

How time really flies! In about 12 hours, the CGG team of 16 will be heading to Chiang Mai and then Pai to reach our beneficiary school/orphanage Baan Mae Ping. We have geared up so much for this day and it finally arrived. All members are extremely excited for this trip and believe me, our Whatsapp group has so many exchanges in conversation that if anyone missed it, it’ll be like hundreds of unread messages!

We will be setting off early in the morning on Christmas Day and will be shopping for the kids when we arrive in Chiang Mai. I will be reporting as real-time as possible (depending on network availability) for our family and friends who are very excited but at the same time, concern for our safety. While we are all partying tonight and tomorrow on this blessed day, I wish that we are in your prayers for clear skies and safety as we will be traveling up north to a village Pai via some windy mountainous roads.

So keep updated on our Facebook page (http://goo.gl/Qh57PQ) as we will be updating our journey for all of you! Merry Christmas y’all!

CGG Gourmet Coffee Appreciation Workshop A Success!

What an awesome day! Today’s Gourmet Coffee Workshop held at Highlander Coffee was a great success! We had 2 great sessions and we were filled for both of them!

All thanks are going out to all friends and family who came today to support our event, your participation gives us more reason for us to carry on further in our mission to help more unfortunate kids!

Thanks also for friends who took so much time in baking cookies and biscottis for the participants and also for sale as well! they taste great!

Thanks are also going out to Highlander Coffee for hosting the venue at a discounted rate for us and accommodating our infiltration into their premise! 😉 They gave us in depth knowledge of how coffee was evolved and how to prepare various types of coffee with proper techniques!

And not forgetting all members of CGG for coming down to help and ensure our guests are comfortable from the time they arrive! You guys are awesome!

We have uploaded all the pictures of today’s event on our FB page (http://goo.gl/jEKM71), so go check ’em out now! 🙂

Hacking Attempt On CGG’s Email

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: 

Sunday, November 17, 2013 6:53:51 AM UTC 
IP Address: 198.74.109.98 
Location: United States

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:

  1. 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.
  2. CGG’s activities will only be announced via this website officially, until further notice.
  3. 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 ❤

PROJECT CHIANG MAI 2013 UPDATES 3

Hey y’all,

Sorry for not updating sooner as I was awfully swarmed with my big move inter-city within China and finally able to catch some breath over the weekend to work on posting this update.

From our last update, we are already filled for this year’s charity trip to Northern Thailand. So this year we have a total of 16 members heading up to bring joy and fun to the 160+ kids of Baan Mae Ping! This is definitely a record for CGG since we started 5 years ago! Awesome!

While we are organizing our activities up there as well as logistical matters, we are also planning for our fund raising event which will be announced in our next post. We would like to thank our friends and colleagues for some donations coming in every now and then and we will definitely acknowledge and list them down after our trip.

So check out our next post and we really hope to see you at the fund raising event!

With gratitude,

Big Roy
