6. Take the #ADayInHerLife challenge by BakedKL for a good cause

The cause: Disadvantaged women in Malaysia. The aim: To raise awareness. The challenge: Right here. There you’ll even be able to read some of these women’s stories and perhaps order a homemade treat where 10 per cent of the total sales made will be contributed to a charity organisation.
