Junior Award Scheme for Schools (JASS) My World - An example of Action
Chong Yong Ho, Year 5G
The first time I saw the news on the Australia bushfires I was devastated, not just because of how fast it spreads, but also about how many lives it took.The massive impact on Australia motivated me to launch an Ice Block fundraiser to help the victims. Looking back, I could not have not done it without all the support given by the JASS students and the AISM Community.
Thank you to all those who were willing to sacrifice their time to contribute to this campaign.
You can perform generous acts regardless of age, wealth and distance. Even under the Movement Control Order period, I am still able to contribute with the JASS community programme. Every week, my mum and I help pack groceries into packets and have them delivered to the Chin Refugee families.
Chin Refugees are seeking protection in Malaysia because human rights violations are taking place in their countries against them. In Malaysia, they have to work hard for a living as a blue-collar worker. The MCO has prevented them traveling to work and many Chin families are left with little or no supplies.
In an arduous situation like this, sharing generosity will make a big difference.
Just lending some simple ideas:
1. Give your neighbour some flowers or a kind note for no reason!
2. Help your neighbour water a plant!
3. Order doughnuts for the frontline heroes!
4. Eat less meat and use reusable items!
5. Spare an insect’s life - even if it is creepy!
6. Smile at everyone you see!
7. Stop forwarding fake and hurtful messages!
