So, MCO got extended till 28 April....

As everyone is anticipated for today's announcement, I hav mixed feeling on the extended MCO...
Happy - of the wise decision made to further prevent COVID-19 from spreading
Sad - coz unable to go back office/out dining/cut hair (my hair is so untrimmed now)
While i have adapted to the WFH routine, the 'freedom' of goin out is still missing.
 
In such recession, my company CEO has decided to contribute RM1000 to each staff for us to do charity. I mean the money goes to the charity on behalf of our name, and we are free to choose which option to donate them:
Option 1: Donate or contribute to a tax-deductible organization. The list is available in LHDN (Inland Revenue Board) website. We can also donate to the Ministry of Health or hospitals.
Option 2: Use the budget to organise our own contribution to communities in need. This would require the staff to locate the community that they would like to provide assistance to, then purchase necessities according to their needs and show proof for reimbursement later.
I think there is a third option too...as some would like to donate to the zoo...
Which do you prefer?

Your company is very generous. Any of the 3 option is good.

Donation is good and all three are commendable. Option 1 is the easiest as you don't need to find the community that requires assistance. Option 2 is good as you will be donating directly and can ensure it reaches the selected community. It is also good to donate to the zoo as they need funds to maintain the animals and their environment. If I had to choose, It would be Option 1.
