A deliciously inspirational donation

Some people use words to get their creative juices going, some rely on pictures or photos to do the same. Stephanie Lee however chooses a different manner to get her message across – she cooks and designs eye catching delicious dishes that captures the heart and the tummies of the viewers and the diners. Stephanie is an ordinary mum who wanted to make eating an interesting thing for her two daughters and in 2008, she hit on the idea of making her cooking adorably fun and colourful. She was so good, her cute, artsy dishes became an inspiration to many other mothers and she now attracts 650,000 instagram followers. Guardian knew that Samantha’s culinary art described as “good enough to eat” by the various foreign media is exactly the kind of “food that can do good,” so she was roped her to create a limited edition calendar for 2015 titled “Love Life, Be Inspired” which was given to customers who purchased its products priced RM100 and above. The calendars were a terrific hit and true to the statement that “food that can do good” Guardian with Samantha’s recommendation chose to donate RM10,000 to three charities including Parents Without Partners Bhd. Co-founder Sanice Kam who attended the cheque presentation ceremony shared that the amount will be utilised to set up “Change Station” in USJ1, a mini library in a shoplot for poor children and adults including single parents and their kids who want to enjoy reading story books, participate in story telling sessions and learn English. Change Station is located just next door to our second hand shop Jumble Station at F1-01-04 Angsana Flats, Subang Mewah, USJ1 and will be open to volunteers who want to assist us in bringing stories to life and teach them simple English to the poor folks in the low cost area. Together with Guardian and Samantha Lee, PWP aims to extend the theme of “Love Life, Be Inspired” through Change Station and this timely donation makes it a reality today.
