THREE non-profit organisations received RM30,000 each in donation from Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye, which were proceeds from his biography book sale.

The recipients were charitable organisations Pure Life Society, Malaysian Association for the Blind (MAB) and Kasih Hospice Foundation.

The 312-page biography titled Call Lee Lam Thye: Recalling a Lifetime of Service is being sold in major bookstores.

Lee, a prominent social activist, said the organisations selected for the donation had a commendable mission and were making a positive impact in society.

“I have worked with these charity groups and was drawn to their good work and noble objectives to uplift others.

“However, they receive little support from the government, which is why I decided to contribute some funds to them,” he told StarMetro.

Lee said he was identifying more non-profit organisations to be future beneficiaries of his book sales.

During his book launch last year, Lee pledged to donate the proceeds from the sales to charitable causes.

The book – priced at RM70 (hardcover) and RM50 (softcover) – chronicles his journey as former Bukit Bintang MP and social activist.

The memoir contains Lee’s account of his voluntary work with charitable organisations, and news articles he wrote.

He also penned about the environment and importance of having civic-consciousness among the public.

He expressed hope it would inspire Malaysian youths to take up community work to contribute towards nation-building.

“I hope more people will buy the book.

“This will raise more funds that will be donated to more charity groups,” he added.
