The 501st Legion Malaysia will be heading up to Penang once again thanks to the gracious invitation of the Penang Pink Hibiscus Club. As part 2 of our donation drive for Princess Leah, to help her family pay for the medical expenses incurred during her treatment.

Princess Leah has been going in and out of hospital due to  a deadly mitochondrial disease that resembles Leigh's disease, but a different genetic mutation. This mutation is unique in that it's the only case ever documented and it is unfortunate that is has to happen to someone so young and innocent. Her parents have always been by her side ever since and needs our help to relive the pressure on their plight, especially when it comes to paying bills for the hospital.

The Bon Odori will take place at the Esplanade in George Town Penang, at 6pm. Roads will be closed by 4pm so come early! There will also be fireworks at 10-11pm so if you have the time to stay back, please do so!


If you are unable to come and would still like to donate, feel free to head to the main page and click on Support Princess Leah to be taken to the main donation page, or just head on over here to Skygunbros leah donation page.

For more information about Leah's current status, feel free to visit her very own blog page here at the Princess Leah Diaries.
or at  her official facebook page to leave them words of encouragement.

For the Legion, For Charity,
