I gave one ringgit. Will you, won’t you?

It is more of a symbolic gesture. A sign of my support as a blogger to another blogger. It is not the money that matters but rather, how many of us are willing to go out and put in a ringgit to say, ‘I will walk with you.’ You get into trouble with the law because you wrote something that you believe in.
So, will you do the same for RPK? He has refused bail and will go to Sungai Buloh Prison.
I deposited RM2 in CIMB because outstation charges cost 50 sen and atm machine accepts only notes.
I do it because I believe RPK has done what most of us bloggers will do. We say something that we strongly believe we are right. We expressed something that tugs on our conscience. He took a risk and he pays the price. But his faith, though a Muslim, is very inspiring to me. He wrote about submission to God. He leave things in God’s hands.
You can either donate through our local bank or through PayPal. Remember, it is not the money that counts. It is the numbers. It is how we bloggers can stand united to show our support to another blogger.
So, will you? Won’t you?
