My Indo Connect http://myindoconnect.wordpress.com/ have a special connection with The Community of Rumah Pelangi, a community group which have the heart to give the hope to Merapi Kids. Since My Indo Connect’s resource is batik, and was incorporated with hedaBATIK, so any cost or 50% cost of applied by hedaBATIK goes to Merapi Kids and to preserve batik.

hedaBATIK would like to supply the resources such as batik tool and equipment for Merapi Kids, and also organize a workshop with the local batik artist to share their time and knowledge voluntarily to the Merapi Kids.  They deserve to have it as their compensation as an informal skill gain.**
