Here's a copy of the letter of appeal that will be sent out to various companies to get their help to donate recycle items for JS... if you know of anyone who can participate, feel free to forward them this link or email me their contacts and I'll do the rest. The little we do today will mean so much to a Single Parent and children in need.

Re: Recycle initiative
Jumble Station (JS) www.jumblestation1.blogspot.com is initiating a recycle business specially for needy Single Parents which is located at Block F, Angsana Flats, Subang Mewah, USJ1 Subang Jaya, just a door away from the JS premises itself.
The recycle business will be managed by Single Parents themselves and is designed to empower them to be financially independent so that they don’t have to rely on handouts all the time. Establishing a recycle centre makes good business sense because it complements JS second hand goods business - items that are useless or those that cannot be repaired will go straight to the recycle centre..
To helm this fledgling start-up, we have Rainah Kinsang a single mother of four boys, aged 9,8 and 7 (twins). She became a single mother on January 29 2008 when her husband Jerry Rambayan from Sabah drowned while spear fishing at an abandoned development site at USJ1. Currently she has no job and therefore no income and is unable to pay anyone to care for her four children if she does seek employment. The recycle store will enable her to work close to home especially during the hours when her children are at school.
Chandra Babu is a single father of 9 children. His wife passed away in September last year and he has had to single handedly bring up the 7 boys on his own while two daughters are being cared for in Shelter Home. Babu is a lorry driver and his role will be to collect all recyclable items, send them to JS Recycle for sorting before selling them to the various parties that buy recycled items.
We seek your help in donating to Jumble Station any or all recycle items from your office/residential premises. They may include :
a) Papers – Photostat papers, newspapers, coloured papers
b) Cardboard boxes
c) Plastic materials
d) Metal – electrical items, cans, bars, rods etc
We would also appreciate if you could organize a Collection Day for Jumble Station where your staff and associates can bring in unwanted items from their homes which can be donated directly to needy Single Parents or sold at Jumble Station itself.
