Our Feisty Princess's Birthday Wish

Monday, June 22, 2009

Some of you may have remembered reading that our princess made a little hoo-ha when she realised that her kor kor's birthday would be celebrated earlier than hers. She sulked for entire day due to that.

Kids at this age being kids, have no conception of time. The 2 angels used to celebrate their birthdays together every year despite the fact that their birthdays are 2 months apart. Therefore to Charmaine, this knowledge of kor kor's birthday being earlier than hers is something new.

Hence, when we told her that her birthday is coming, a very big grin appeared on her face and immediately she said, "I want three Doras." (She was referring to the same kinda Power Ranger jely Jase had for his birthday)

We are going to make her wish come true.

1) A Dora jelly would be ordered (consider that done)

2) A Dora mascot would cheer her up during her 5th chemo at NUH. (will liaise)

3) A Dora would whisper into our little feisty princess's ear, telling her that she would be cured at NY.

Charmaine's birthday is on 14th July and the feisty team is hoping to raise SGD 500K by then. We are currently at our 150K mark. That's 30% of our target.

Charmaine has a window period to receive the 3F8 drug in NY. The period would be somewhere between end July to early August after her 5th chemo and we're racing against time to raise our targeted amount.

Please help Charmaine fulfil her wish.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Dear All,

I believe all of us wanted to shower charmaine with love and gifts...

I would like to appeal here that you DONATE the amount that you are likely to spend on gifts for charmaine instead.

Yes, i sounded so practical... Yes, all kids need presents on their birthday... but we can leave this task to cyn and the feisty team cos they know exactly what will bring a smile on our feisty princess on her birthday.

If we can donate it to her medical funds, that will be the greatest gift for her... a higher chance of survival... and we can avoid getting duplicate gifts which will amount to waste too.

Every dollar counts here... pls spend it wisely...

i agreed with what Annoymous said. Donating the amount that you wanted to spend on the gift is the greatest present that Char needed right now.Time is running short, pls donate generously.i do not know Char or Cyn by person, but i feel for them. i can explained it myself, when i look at Char, she simply reminds me on my daughter..so sweet and innocent. I hope in this bad times, the public can lend a helping hand to the needy. there is always an angel in our heart.:)

You should have started the TNP article earlier when they was more time to raise funds. But still consider it a huge success already since she reacts well to surgery despite minor hiccups ....Carry on the fund raising, Char will make it!!

To feisty team,

Not sure if this is a good idea, i would like to propose to you setting up a Foreign Currency Fixed Deposit in USD in a local bank and start to earn interest on the funds collected.

The risk here will be exchange rate risk (converting USD to SGD at the end of the tenor)... but since we are going to use USD anyway, the risk is minimal. and if we were to close the account within 6 mths of opening, need to pay $10 i think...

Just a proposal here.

Hi all

may i ask how does the nuffnang advert works?

so i just need to click on the ads, and a certain amt will be given to cyn & char? do i need to do other thing?

Keep it going. Encourage and motivate little Charmaine mentally and spiritually.

Mummy cyn: With so many kind souls here willing to help, I'm sure you will get the funds.

Each and everyone of us will do our part to share and email our friends and colleagues to help chip in. Every single bit counts.

God bless Charmaine.

anon & chloecube,

Yes totally agree with the both of you.

About the foreign currency fixed deposit.. do you have more info on how we can go about doing it? If so, please drop us an email at ourfeistyprincess@gmail.com.

anon (nuffnang),

The ads don't appear all the time. Whenever you see the words "I serve nuffnang", it means that there are no ads. Clicking on those would not be counted as clicks if I'm not wrong, as this would lead to the nuffnang page.

However, if you see ads eg canon or the LG handphone etc. You can click on those and it would lead to the advertisers' websites. You needn't do much after that except probably just click around or close the window.

I do hope I haven't confused you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To the rest,

Thanx for all of your support, encouragement, prayers and ammunitions. Charmaine is not alone in this battle. She has all of you angels supporting her.
