Year End Summary 2014

Greetings to all, as we round up the last few days of the year 2014, we here at the 501st Malaysia Outpost have worked tirelessly all throughout 2014 with many ups and downs to bring smiles and cheers to many fans and kids alike. Continuing from the work we have done and the relationships we have established with many Charity Organizations such as Make A Wish Malaysia and United Voices, we hope to move ever forward, stronger as before to help out many more Organizations and Beneficiaries bring much needed joy and help to all who need it. This is inline with our goal to reach Garrison status (to have more than 25 active members) as well as being a lot more involved in many more charitable events to come.

Without further ado, we would like to announce that we have successfully raised RM 40,504.96 of funds in donations across 32 days of events! That is a 157% increase from our 2013 collection of RM 15,770.05!

Our list of beneficiaries this year are:
  • Hospice Penang
  • Rumah Juara
  • Childhood Cancer Patients
  • Monfort Boys Town
  • Christopher and Dana Reeves Foundation
  • Yayasan Chow Kit
  • National Kidney Foundation
  • Agathians Shelter
  • Society for the Socially and Mentally Handicapped
  • Foundation for Children (Bangkok Comic Con in collaborations with the Thailand Garrison, Singapore Garrison and Indonesian Outpost)
  • Caring Home Klang
  • Firemen Volunteer's Association
  • SJK(C) Yuk Chai's Green Energy Project
  • Daybreak Society Ipoh
  • Projek Amal
  • United Voices
  • Make-A-Wish Malaysia
We would also like to take the oppurtunity to announce our Trooper of the Year 2014, with a total of 60 appearances to date since he joined! Trooper Daniel Wong (TK 6316), our very own Public Relations Officer!


But behind every trooper, is a minder, Imperial Support. Without these brave volunteers, working tirelessly to take care of our troopers, to be their seeing eye and to help out with any armor mishaps, our entire operation would have ceased to exist. We would like to have the honor to announce our Minder of the Year 2014, Our very own Honorary Member, Mr Ivan Wong! For without whom, we would not have our photographs taken, our armor's fitted and our donation box filled!


And last but not least, as always, we would not be where we are without You, the public, for the fantastic generosity shown by all of you in Malaysia as well as from those across the World! Truly in numbers, can we make a difference, can our voices be heard! Without all of you, we would never have been able to raise the amount we posted above, thus we thank you from the bottom of our hearts and hope that you continue to give us your support as we head into 2015... A great year ahead and not just because of Star Wars Episode 7, but for many more smiles to give to children and many more charities to help out! With that, we bid 2014, a fond farewell and usher in 2015!!

But you know what? You can be part of this team too!! That's right! Why not extend a helping hand and march forward with us! Come over to our booth at any of our future events and speak to us to find out what you can do! But if you are too shy (Our Stormtroopers can look quite intimidating, we admit) feel free to drop us an email at my501stgwl@gmail.com!
