A little help... goes a long way!

Sunday is nice!

Woke up a minute before the alarm. We went to the "World Vision" office today as we had volunteered to help out with receiving phone calls for donations for the Tsunami affected areas. Thankfully it was busy with lots of calls after last nights Charity Concert. The centre made $20.5 million since last night 6pm...!
One sweet boy not more than 7 or 8 yrs called, coz he wanted to donate his $5!

BTW... I kinda like playing the Gocarting game on the steering wheel..!! I think I'm gonna get hooked up to those racing games just like my bro!

Ciao coz I got to...Wrrrrrrrooommmmm!!!!

Hey Arvind! Good on you. :)

The charity match today... how good is that~! ROW has made 344 runs which means $344,000 from the '3' a TeleCom Company here...as they said they will donate $1,000 per run in the match. Plus $50,000 for every six from Toyota Automobiles!

Are you guys watching? Asia will start batting in half n hour.

@Manu - So true!!! Imagine playing 'Hit and Run' all evening and then going on the roads in the morning. With the peak hour traffic...I might as well just 'Hit' and 'Run'..!!
:D

The charity cricket yesterday made $14.6 million!! Wow..good huh? There will be a second charity match again next month.
Hoping that the support for Tsunami victims will continue for the years to come, unlike some victims in Earthquakes etc in previous years where governments promised millions of dollars but never delivered after the media and public attention moved away.
Amen!

Yep,the match was the best thing to have happened.It was kinda nice to see people like SRT coming in as the 12th man and carrying drinks just to be part of the game.

What made me happy was the fact that players were really serious about the game and did not consider this as another charity match.They were really fighting for the tsunami victims.
