    I just emailed all volunteers coming down for the first weekend 15 and 16 Jan. Please check your email for details. For volunteers on second and third weekends we will contact you at a later time as everyone's quite busy these few days, I ask for your kind understanding

    If I missed out anyone please contact me directly at go.eikin@gmail.com

    Currently we have on average 14 volunteers at all time for this weekend, still have place for one or two more, first day will be quite crucial also so more help will always be welcomed.

    OK everyone, this is the final leg before the thing kicks off, let's keep our spirits high. Also, thank you all so much for the support! And this is a great team to work with!
    Great work eikin

    was wondering if the mods/admins can help sticky this to create awareness to forum visitors who might take the chance to support us

    hey! thanks man! i'll be in school tomorrow, try to sms first before calling just in case, thanks again!

    Apologies


    First apologies to the volunteers who were trying very hard to contact me in the evening, my hp suffered a major concussion after experiencing a sudden influx of messages and call if i have not been able to answer your calls/smses i truly and sincerely apologise for any frustrations, and for any queries, feel free to direct to my email at go.eikin@gmail.com i'll try my best to answer.


    Thanks to all


    Thanks to all volunteers and supporters, it's the whole team that enabled us to get to where we are now, no single person can claim any greatest credit. Now we need the entire team effort to drive this event through, let's keep our spirits high!

    ok time to rest, will sort out the information and email an update to volunteers involved in the first weekend. for those coming only from second weekend onwards, please give us some time to analyse weekend one's result before we contact you for a meetup next week.

    Cheers!

    First of all a BIG THANK YOU to all who came down to help and support the event! The amount of effort and resources committed is simply amazing, the setup of the event itself proved to be a miracle, but on hindsight, it is not just a miracle, it is truly the manifestation of what we can do and are capable of if we want to DO IT! Congratulations to all who took part!

    I think with the completion of Day 01 of Photo Aid, I should, on behalf of the entire Photo Aid team, give credit to the many members for some special and unusual effort put in that led to today's achievement. in no specific order:

    Amigo: our best performing donation collector. (easily 50% of the donations came from her collection today!)

    HotSpots & wife: our 'foreign affairs ministers', lots of coordination work done between the Photo Aid team and various organisations (and so many of them)

    yqt: providing the studio space, came forth as a capable event manager and planner, another of our 'foreign affairs minister' other than HotSpots, always ready to provide Photo Aid team with the relevant links, and provide concrete solutions to problems

    ortega: originator of the Photo Aid idea, our chief designer, who designed our poster, flyers and got them settled in time for usage with short notice

    poohbear: great manpower manager, actively volunteering to provide logistic support

    Sjourn & colleagues: morale booster when the going gets tough (*wink wink* think all the organising members know what i mean)

    Wai: our technical expert that saved all cameras from the torture of having endless CF card transfers by providing the wonderful wireless connections, also the one who gave us so many contacts to find sponsorships

    tupi guy: providing innovative solutions and saved the day by giving us the 'light' (pun intended )

    Del_CtrlnoAlt: giving us the important vehicular transportation of bulky equipment, and taking the time from work to help us

    Of course the team on the ground for the first day were really great, getting all the shooting (photogs) and printing (DIs) problems ironed out. I'll like to credit everyone for this, all helpers are directly involved in today's better than expected results of our charity drive.

    and of course all the relevant authorities and sponsors also provided important assistance

    and special thanks to Sulhan & wife for the great meals provided

    I may have missed out anyone and anything, getting bad memory as my school gets started ... lol ... please bring up their good names and deeds that enabled what we all did today that you know.

    WELL DONE EVERYONE! we still have many days to work on this so let's keep our spirits high!
