Baby Amar VS Donation Group on Times Square Bridge

Berjaya Times Square , a place which im sure everyone in kl been there before ....

but did you noticed a group of chinese youngster aged around 18 to 26 who always stay in a group asking for donation ?! their working location will the pedestrian bridge on the Amoda / Sg Wang side bridge ( not the Monorail Side ) . Basically , i will saw them most of the day ( as in 29 days in 31 days ) and their working time will be morning till late 10PM . they have been there more than 3 months ( as i will be passing there everyday for work ) and each and everytime they will ask RM 10 for donation , and in return , they will give u back something ( doll , fan , pen and ETC and change from time to time ) . I doubt that they are really legal donation group as they will disappear whenever times square security ( not the small potato who is there just to act like statue but the management type ) is there , or the group will stand far away from the bridge . And , i did saw one of the lady ( which i think she is the leader / boss ) counting her stock with the donation thing , i always seen her teaching the group on how to stop the passerby , surround them and ask for money . Once i even heard a guy talking in mandrin scolding a passerby who refuse to pay "RM10 also "tai em hoi meh" ( RM 10 also not willing to pay ) . They did try to stop me few times before but i just ignore them but from what i saw before , the will touch your shoulder ( no matter you are guys or girls ) which i felt it's rude , and they even purposely stand infront of the girls to stop her , force her to listen ( which i felt its not a good way and some might found it is offensive ) . From what i felt , they are just another "CON-Group" asking for money ....... which , disturbing and even making the road stuck with all of their people stoping everyone who walk by . To those who really like to make donation or charity , you can always find a legal donation group , charity house , donation funds who is registered ( like TV3 donation channel , mercy malaysia and so much more ) ! not to those who use your money for their clothes , handphone , cars and others ........ !
To those who got this experience , especially the same group i mention , do share your experience here . ( as i never even give them a chance to talk with me :P )

And for those who really sincerely like to make donation , no matter how little it is ( every bit helps ) , you can start to do so now with and easy way .

Here is one of the people who really need help from everyone .......

2-year-old Ammar Danish has suffered from Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA) since birth. He has a hole in his heart which results in oxygenated blood and non-oxygenated blood mixing together, which in turn puts a lot of strain on his heart and lung arteries. In some cases, the hole eventually seals itself up after some time, but during a routine checkup on 11 January 2010, it was clear that that wasn’t the case with Baby Ammar and doctors pronounced surgery as being necessary to prevent the situation from growing worse.

Baby Ammar’s mother is Nuffnanger Azmaniza bt Mohamad Kamal, who blogs at When this misfortune was brought to our attention by some concerned Nuffnangers, we immediately felt compelled to do something to help a member of our community. The deposit for the surgery to close the PDA will cost RM12,000 and is a tremendous burden for Azmaniza, a full-time working mom with five children to feed.

There are a few ways you can help Baby Ammar get the surgery that he needs; we’re sure everyone would be able to contribute through one of the ways as mentioned below:
1. Enable ‘Show Charity Ads’ in your Blog Manager preferences for the duration of this fundraiser. You will not be paid for displaying the ads, but the ads will greatly help to promote this cause to more people who might be willing to do something for Baby Ammar.
2. Blog about Baby Ammar’s condition, and include a link to this Nuffnang blog post so that your readers will know where to go for more information. Again, this will also do a great service to Baby Ammar by spreading the word about his condition.
3. Make a donation to Azmaniza Mohamad Kamal – 514093114912 (Maybank). Every little bit helps, so please do contribute any amount you can.
Baby Ammar’s surgery is scheduled for 22 February 2010, and the fund-raising effort will end on midnight at 17 February 2010. It is indeed a short period of time, but let us all rise to the occasion and prove to everyone the strength of a blogging community like ours. We’ll update in this post from time to time on the amount of donations raised.

Time is short ...... so hopefully they can have enough to save this cute little child . Every little bit helps .... any may luck be with you amar ~
