Does Your Local Charity Need Help? Kota Kinabalu Twestival 2011

Angeline Monday, February 7, 2011 ,

Know a local charity that is in dire need of support? Now's your chance to let us know. We are in the process of selecting one local cause to make a difference, and thus would like the community to let us know what causes are important to you. So far, we have a shortlist of charities (we'll share them with you in the next post) but are also open to nominations of other charities in Sabah.

If you have a cause in mind, please nominate your charity in the comments section below (on this blog post). More importantly, we welcome any local non-profit charities in Sabah who qualify to nominate themselves by submitting their proposal to us to

Here's what we're looking for:-

•Must be a registered and established nonprofit, based locally in Sabah.
•The organization's work must have a direct positive impact on our community
•Must state specific use of funds needed in your proposal
•Overtly religious and political causes do not qualify
Submission Guidelines

Keep it Simple - Submissions that are concise, descriptive and organized will fare better in the selection process. The organizers will be voting based on the information submitted to us.

We suggest that you send us:-
a. A written-profile of your charity organization and what you do
b. A documented case of your cause, inclusive of photos of issues that are in need of Twestival funds
c. Let us know how our help will positively impact the community in your cover letter

How to Nominate

For everyone else, tweet us @kktwestival and use the hashtag #kktwestivalcharity to the end so that we can track all the nominations.

Closing Date for Submissions
The closing date for nominations and submissions is 12th February 2011 (a week from now). After we have received all proposals and nominations, the organizing committee will choose one final recipient in which we will be working to raise funds for this March 24th.

We wish you the best of luck! Let the nominations begin...
