Didi told me about Earthlings some time back and i finally watched it today.
"EARTHLINGS is a powerful and informative documentary about society’s treatment of animals, narrated by Joaquin Phoenix with soundtrack by Moby. This multi-award winning film by Nation Earth is a must-see for anyone who cares about animals or wishes to make the world a better place."

My friend Julia contacted me recently to shed some awareness on donating towards the upgrade and maintenance of the Mar Thoma Day Care Centre in Pandamaran, Klang which is an institution (kindergarten) that aims to provide affordable education to the poor children living in the surrounding community.
Short background of the home:
The Mar Thoma Day Care Centre was established in 1995 to provide free education for the poor community of Pandamaran and its surrounding areas. The Centre accommodates about 30 children and two staff. Students are provided with learning materials, food and transportation to and fro their houses.
Due to rising costs, the Centre faces shortage of funds to meet expenses of about RM50,000 per year. Transportation for some children had to be stopped due to lack of funds which resulted in a drop of attendance as the children had no means of reaching the centre.
At present, a minimal fee of RM50 is charged per student for the entire year which is hardly enough to cover the cost of running the centre. The fundraising is an opportunity for members of the public to help contribute towards sustaining this centre which seeks to equip poor children with the education they very much deserve.
