Blogger Roy Ngerng, who will be facing a damages law suit brought about by PM Lee Hsien Loong, had asked for donations from the public, especially netizens, his main audience.
Many people chipped in, and even photographed their contribution in the form of bank statements, together with their “message” tagged along with it. (for eg. http://on.fb.me/1klyOXB)
By Day 2 earlier, he was already able to accumulate more than $30,000 in donations, and by Day 3 today, the figure went close to $50,000 at $49,836.75 at press time.
