A little while back I was sharing with everyone about how cervical cancer can be prevented. I take great pride in being an advocate of women being equip with knowledge because that translates into empowerment. But of course, action has to be taken.
Power Over Cervical Cancer (POCC) had a very successful launch, where celebrity ambassadors like theatre thespian Karen Tan and myself played our roles in driving awareness, as well as, a host of passionate bloggers who helped spread the word – mucho kudos as well to our dear MP Halimah Yacob for gracing the media event as our Guest of Honour!
There’s a big event coming up that POCC is organizing that I’d like to help publicise about here on my personal blog… since this important cause is after all, very dear to me… and as you know, this girl practically writes about anything and everything that really means something to her.
As some of you read on a prior blog entry, I lost a very close friend to cancer some years ago, and I still miss her to bits even today… Also, when I was in MGS, my Chemistry teacher was diagnosed with cervical cancer. Mrs MK Wei unfortunately lost the battle against the illness and passed away shortly after. Some losses you really don’t quite get over.
So, back to POCC’s upcoming public event. It’s called the Biggest Pink Party and it takes place from 8:30 to 10:30pm on 24 July (Sat).
Besides a slew of happenings like performances, special appearances (J C & yours truly will be doing something special), a modeling contest, etc… There’s going to be a bazaar as well, where myself and other celebrities have made some personal contributions for the sale – All proceeds go towards the funding of this cause, so I sincerely hope that you’ll tell your friends about it and come on down to this free event that’s open to all as long as you register on POCC.sg
Here’s a little something I personally made just a couple of nights ago for the upcoming POCC fund-raising event. It’s a unique one-of-a-kind handmade wand (it took a lot of time and heart from me), and it’s looking for a brand new home …Feel free to tell me what you think of it!
I published these pictures first on my Facebook page and almost immediately, a ton of comments and ‘likes’ sprung up *grin*
Some people even commented on how this wizard wand I made looked like something pretty much from JK Rowling’s Harry Potter books and movies. Expecto Patronum anyone? ;)
Well, sorry to disappoint, this isn’t an Elder wand with a Phoenix core feather… there’s no magic in it, but the magic is really in you… If you buy it… at POCC’s charity event next month… Because you’d be helping champion a worthy cause and that gives you big brownie karma points… Have I convinced you enough? :) :) :)
I’m leaving it to POCC’s very professional event organizers to handle the bits regarding if it’s for sale/ auction so please don’t ask me how much it’d cost and stuff like that. I’m simply making a personal contribution of this magic wand I completely made all by myself, which I’m quite proud of. It will always have the legacy of being the very first wizard wand that I’ve actually created *beams*
