Dear Friends across the World
Urgent Fund Appeal- Athens Olympic Games 2004 Volunteer
Calling from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. May I seek your urgent help.
My name is Alban Philips from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
I am a Volunteer worker for the Athens 2004 Olympic Games and will be stationed at the Olympic Village at Athens from 8th to 30 August 2004. As a volunteer worker, I will only receive insurance coverage, uniforms, a certificate of participation, free public transportation and food during training and games events. All other expenses such as accommodation for the 3½ weeks, a return air ticket, food plus other miscellaneous expenses have to borne by myself.
I am in a desperate situation since I am unable to raise funds to make it for the Olympic Games in Athens, next week.
In spite of having contacted airlines and other multi-national corporations in Malaysia for support, I however received no positive response. Generally Malaysians do not subscribe much to Volunteerism and neither has there been much support from the local sports body.
However, I have managed to raise US$600/- on my own... but I am still falling short of a balance sum of US1,500/-.
With just 9 days more for my departure (7th August 2004), I am racing against time to raise the balance amount and make preparations.
I would like to appeal if any individual or companies would come to my aid as a sponsor or offer some support to enable me to volunteer at the Athens 2004 Games next week.
Looking forward to hearing from someone as soon as possible.
Thank you and God Bless.
