Dear Friends,

On 12 October 2013, I will be shaving my head for raising funds for cancer battling Bangladeshi international student in Sydney, Rahul Baidya (22). Unfortunately, Rahul has been battling cancer since 2010 and struggling to manage his expenses for living and treatment for cancer. Your generous donation will help in a big way in Rahul’s ongoing battle for life as well as many others who are helped by NSW Cancer Council!

The charity fund-raising has been organised through NSW Cancer Council (Event No. 43525; Do Your Thing). To receive a Tax Deductable Receipt, please deposit the amount directly through this link ( Please note that you will be given a proper Receipt for 50% of the amount you donated, as half of your donated amount will be deposited to Rahul Baidya’s bank account, so to meet his living expenses as well as gap payments for medicines. If you want, a report will be sent to you.

To know more about Rahul’s situation, please check the attached information.

I’d like to earnestly request you to make yet another donation and pray for Rahul’s full recovery. Whether it’s a gold coin, a gold note, or you use a gold credit card – any amount is appreciated!
