The anti-shark finning fund raiser we held recently, which was Asia’s first Finathon and also doubled as the watermanship test for our IDC candidates, was a resounding success.
Now, a week later, having counted every single penny and traced where it came from, we can confirm that not only did we reach our target of RM10k, we also reached our stretch target of RM15k.
The total funds raised were a whopping MR 15,079.10!
It was thanks to the fin-omenal support of all the Finathon participants, plus the generous donations by institutions and companies that showed they care about the future of sharks.
As promised, 100% of the kitty is going straight to Project AWARE Foundation, which will fund the important work they do to save our sharks.
We once again thank everybody who participated in this worthwhile event and would like to let you know that together, we made a big difference!
