It all started when a friend of ours tagged us to this page in Facebook, which involves cats. So, another friend of ours become interested to it and began asking around. Asking us, the cosplayers, His aim, to see if we, as cosplayers could help out for this Cat Welfare Society (CWS) while in costume.

Me and him, and many of us were under this happy community known as Pause for a Cause. We are a community of cosplayers wanting to use the appeal of our ‘Cosplays’ to give back to society. Meaning to say we will get involved in charity events, reaching out to places like the orphanage homes. We also recently support the Phillippines Haiyan Relief in their donation drive. That day was really a huge success for us.

Even hospitals, where we had visit a children’s hospital before. And you could say our presence as cosplayers did bring the patients and caretakers the joy and happiness. Especially the kids there, despite being ill. This is to show how much we care, and feel for them. To cheer them up and tell them they are not always alone. Not to mention, for a Power Ranger like myself to surprise them. Well, you know what I mean =P

Most importantly for this community, is how we cosplayers can make a difference in society. What is more awesome than using our cosplay hobby in a positive and meaningful way? By simply volunteering, whenever we are free. There will be no obligation. Its all from the goodness of our hearts, to commit something special as much as we can. We won’t be expecting much in return. Its what we do best, to give back to society while supporting for a cause.

There were 4 locations. But the organizers had given us 2 locations only. SMU (Singapore Management University) to Orchard Road, and the other one will be at Woodlands Causeway Point.

There will be 2 shifts. 0900 – 1300pm, and the other will be from 1400pm – 1800pm. Most of my gang involved were usually not the morning type of person, so they prefer afternoon shift. So eventually everybody go for afternoon shift.

13 of us were involved. 8 of us were in suit. They rest were our volunteers in our group only. They will act as minders and photographers at the same time. All of us were based on registration. Six of us will be at SMU, while the remaining 7 will be at Woodlands. I will be at Woodlands side.

So we were there yesterday the 16th. And turned out there’s no cats at all as what most of us expected there would be….

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, so its a normal donative drive. Thought there’s gonna be real cats around…. =(

But anyway at the end of the day, though there aren’t any cute kitties around we did enjoy ourselves. It was raining yesterday. But we brave in and successfully ended the donation drive with a big thank you! As expected, the crowd will definitely acted like paparazzi. With Power Rangers around especially, who can’t resist? =D

A big thank you to all of you who had taken part for this donation drive. And once again, also a big thank you to the people of CWS to have us collaborated into this event. Its great knowing all of you! =)
