Assalamualaikum Warrahmatullahi Wabarrakatuh,
Alhamdulillah, we thank our Almighty that our bazaar event, Barang Bekas ber-Qualitas (BBQ) which was held on Sunday, April 24, 2016 went smoothly and as planned. This is a routine event from Komunitas Lebah in raising the operational fund for our social activities. This is also our participation in the community which has limited budget in purchasing second-hand goods, which comes in a very good quality, in an affordable price.
We thank Head of RW 05, Mr. Hidayat and the mosque’s committee, Mr. H. Askolani, who give us the space to hold our event in the mosque’s compound, precisely at Jami Al Mukhlisin, Jl. Cendana Blok B 75, Cinere – Depok. We chose this location because it has quite a spacious area for us selling our goods and it is located in a quite dense area.
We have selected our goods prior to the event, thus we ensure that the quality of goods we sold is very good. We sold them in affordable prices, ranging from Rp. 5.000/3 pieces of clothes, Rp 10.000/3 pieces of clothes, and one piece of clothes from Rp. 5.000 – Rp 20.000. We also sold pants/jeans form Rp 15.000 to Rp 25.000/piece. As for handbags and footwears, we sold them from Rp 5.000 – Rp 50.000.
Although it was a very sunny day, but residents of the surrounding area were very enthusiastic in buying our goods. Initially, we planned to start our bazaar at 09.00, but they already came since 08.00 as we came to do our preparation at 7.30, which was earlier than our plan. We finished around 12.30, and even when we closed our bazaar, few residents still showed up to buy our goods.
Praise the Lord that at the end of our bazar, we can collect Rp. 3,828,000,00. That figure is added with the donation from few donors, and minus with our operational expenses for Rp. 1,466,000,00. Therefore, the net figure we have that is allocated for our operational fund is Rp. 2,762,000,00. A complete financial report can be seen here.
At the same place, we also held Sudut Bocah (Children’s Corner) for the local kids that was led by Cahyono Budi and Yuriko. They were very excited in listening stories from Budi and played together with them. Plus, they can bring back home some Jack & Jills biscuits from Novi, one of our Lebah’s friends.
As a head of the committee and on behalf of Komunitas Lebah, I would like to thank the Head of RW 05 who helped us in disseminating the information of this event to his people, Head of RT 02 who participated in distributing posters and flyers to Integrated Service Post (Posyandu) and local leaders, Head of RT 01 who lend us a tent, and definitely, the committee of Al Muhlisin mosque who allowed us to hold our event in their compound.
As well, I would like to thank our beloved friends of Lebah who have donated their used goods, and of course to Beezers who have given their time and energy to make this event went well as planned. May our Lord pays your contribution with multiple rewards. Aamiin Ya Rabbal Alamin.
Salam Lebah Bzzzzz…
