Thank You for Supporting Our 'Care for Padang' Fundraising Event

On behalf of Indonesian-Canadian communities throughout British Columbia, we would like to thank all of you for participating in our ‘Care for Padang’ fundraising event and making it a successful one. We really appreciate the resources provided by our event supporters, S.U.C.C.E.S.S., Asian Pacific Post, OMNI TV, Consulate General of Republic of Indonesia and William Maranda Productions. In addition, we are so grateful for the contribution from each and every one of you as a donor, committee, volunteer, performer, food vendor, advertising buyer, auction bidder, raffle ticket buyer and/or attendee.

Your involvement makes it possible for us to care for our friends and families in Padang (West Sumatra), Indonesia, so that they have a better life and a high hope for their future after experiencing significant physical and psychological damages caused by the deadly earthquake. Having said that, with your help, we were able to raise net proceeds of CAD$4069.29.

The net proceeds will be donated via Canadian Red Cross, Kompas Humanitarian Fund – a disaster management fund organized by Indonesia’s major newspaper, and in-person, by Indonesian-Canadian community representatives, to the impacted locations, as part of joint-donation program organized by Indonesian-Canadian communities throughout Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton.
