1stly, sorry for the late entry. got sidetracked by exams.. ONDF - one day national fast, is an event organised by Muslim Cultural Society (MCS) UCC which basically invites people from all walks of life to fast for a day with muslims for a charitible cause.

It's an anual program, and this year, we collaborated with HAI for Pakistan Earthquake Appeal and also COPE ( a charity for disabled kids in cork). I was a part of the MCS committee, and with Aimi and nik, were incharge of the promotion (design posters, print flyers, leaftlet, .. the lot!) ... to make the story short, The Dinner/Iftar went out smoothly.

That night I became the Master of Ceremony (MC).. and around 200 people came for the dinner (ticket price - 5 Euro). and we managed to collect around 6000 euros / around RM 30 000 (far more than we had hoped for, which is 1000euro) and we hope next year is gonna be better than this year! .. Go MCS!!
