Many of you may have read about the sad news of real estate agent Richard Fong, 45, who passed away tragically while on his way to Thailand, on a Land Rover relief mission for victims of the tsunami in Krabi, Thailand.
Richard Fong leaves behind a 10-year-old son, Dixon, who is now without parents to look after him (his mother has been in a coma since 2002).
His close friend, KC Cheong, is spearheading an effort to raise funds for Dixon's education.
Mr Cheong was the leader of the second convoy (Richard was the leader of the first). In his words:
Richard was a close friend. At the time of the accident, I was in a different location and had to reorganise everybody and pull everyone together and continue the journey up. I couldn't do anything for Richard, but I can do something for his son's future. I appreciate and welcome your help.
Mr Cheong has already started the fund and contributions have begun. You can pledge your contributions by making out a cheque to an account set up for Dixon.
Please address the cheque to:
"DIXON FONG YAN DA" and include your name, contact number, and email at the back of the cheque.
Post the cheque to:
BLK 3, BEDOK SOUTH AVE 1 #08-833
If you need details, you can also email Mr Cheong at kccheong[at]magix.com.sg. Mr Cheong will be consolidating all the contributions made. He will create a list of contributors and contributions, and he will give a weekly update to all contributors via email.
Richard Fong died while on his way to help the less fortunate, doing whatever he could... wherever he would. Now, let's see what we can do to help his little boy.
