Thank you for being one of the millions!
December is my favourite month because of X'mas and the season of giving.
In the first week of this December, I'm going to participate Habitat for Humanity's Bangladesh Friendship Build with over 100 global volunteers to build 20 houses in 5 days for the families currently living in unsafe and substandard housing.
YES, I'm serious - I've never been to Bangladesh, and I'm traveling to one of the poorest areas of the country, Srimangal, to be a construction worker building decent housing for the underprivileged families with the simple hope of giving them a "Merry Christmas".
By the way, even though I'm a Buddhist, I'm always a big fan of CHRISTMAS!
For those who know little about Bangladesh (孟加拉國), it is one of the world’s poorest and least-developed countries with 63 million people living below the poverty line.

In case you are curious about the $$, all of your donations online
and offline go directly to Habitat For Humanity covering program
costs, http://www.habitat.org/gv/tripcost.aspx, and the
extra amounts raised are purely donations for HFH.
What am I paying from my own pocket? Airfair, visa, insurance, misc. expenses, my sweat and effort.
To my friends in HK, donations of HK$100 or above are tax deductible with tax receipt.
I would greatly appreciate every dollar of donation and blessing.
Thank you very much for visiting my page and your generosity.
At last, I would say "I was here".
