The race for a living planet

December 10, 2007

Previously I have written on the Amazing Race reality show. This time I am writing on a similar title, and a real race at that.

I love it when there are sound-minded business organisations that do care about the planet we live in. One example I can be very proud of is Standard Chartered Bank.

The Race for a Living Planet is a joint effort by the Bank with the World Wildlife Fund – WWF. It is an initiative to conserve the environment and individuals like you and me, can make a difference to world we live in.

Make up to eight pledges from the site then select the country of your choice from the list (Brunei is included). Standard Chartered will donate USD 1 million to support vital vital environmental projects which will benefit the three nations that receive the most pledges per capita.  Currently Brunei, yes our beloved country, is on the lead for this race. So common guys, make your environmental pledges NOW and select Brunei as the country of your choice. Brunei Boleh.

Think of the Heart of Borneo…I am confident it will be a success.

    The ‘ Heart of Borneo’ heritage is priceless.

    Love our country. I pray that my great-great-great-grandchildren will live to see the wildlife in person instead of just reading or seeing pictures of the animals. Many are near to extinction now…sad. Hope Brunei wins.
