SUBANG JAYA entrepreneur Paul Yung raised a whopping RM37,000 by shaving his head bald on New Year’s Day for the Children’s Wish Society of Malaysia.
The mean feat of losing his locks took just 15mins but his fundraising efforts will go a long way in helping to fulfil wishes of ailing children across the country through the Subang Jaya based society.
“I am fairly proud of my hair. It’s ultra-fluffy and helps me look a bit taller. In December, I decided to do something I had never done before – to go bald for a Cause.”
“I decided to raise money for CWS Malaysia. They need the funds as the Covid-19 year had deprived them of fundraising through their annual Jom Durian event,” he said.
According to Paul, the campaign to raise funds started on Christmas Day, giving him just over a week to raise funds for the charity from family, friends and netizens who wanted to chip in.
“I was freaked out at the thought of shaving my head bald and I wondered how my daughter would react when she sees me after the shave.”
“I would like to thank the people at CWS for their great work, and for everyone who helped out and donated. In tough times like these, it’s important we do what we can to empower the community. I’m thankful for this opportunity to do my part,” he added.
Paul’s head shaving was witnessed by family members, the CWS team and ADUN Subang Jaya Michelle Ng who cheered him on. His feat was also featured on SJECHO Facebook Live.
When he finally looked at the mirror, he quipped that he might actually keep the new “hairstyle”.
