Heart Of Gold

Good day friends and foodies! While we’re all stuck at home during MCO, how many of you actually gave some thoughts to our furry friends? Well, considering the fact that movement out of home is restricted, who will be feeding the stray animals on the street?

Caitlin Tang, 11 from Penang is baking and selling waffles to nearby residents and the proceeds will be donated to local animal shelters such as IAPWA Penang and more. The idea of raising funds to local animal shelters came to Caitlin by a fellow neighbour who complimented her waffles.

Having shown interest in a school subject on entrepreneurship, Caitlin then further ventured into this humble business with the help and support of her parents. Her father aided Caitlin in setting up her very own e-commerce site to cater to enthusiastic orders.

And, that isn’t it! Caitlin even designed her very own leaflet promoting her waffles-venture! Suffice to say, she’s got design and baking skills in her blood! Since day 1 of her project on 19th April, Caitlin has successfully raised a whopping amount of RM2364! This is all because of one particular customer who donated RM1000 thus sky-rocketing the fund.

“Many would remember this MCO as a time of doom and gloom but for me, this will be one part of my life which I will never forget. During the last few days, I have spoken to and been in contact with some of the nicest and most generous people. I am humbled by all your compliments but I would like you to know that without your support, this donation drive would not be successful. So a BIG thank you from the bottom of my heart! ”
