Shopee disclosed that it united Malaysians and its partners like Sunway Medical Centre for this cause, and together raised RM114,170 in just three weeks.
To further drive awareness, #ShopeeMAKNA 11.11 Charity Challenge culminated with a live show, aired on Shopee Live. During the show, personalities including Elyana, Farahanim Razak, Rita Datuk Sosilawati, Lia Natalia, As’ad Motawh, Yasmin Hani, Liyana Jasmay, Sarah Hildebrand, Adira Suhaimi, Fahrin Ahmad and Sophia Liana as well as national gymnasts Koi Sie Yan, Jeremiah Loo and Amy Kwan showed their support by taking part in six crazy challenges, voted by Malaysians, to raise funds.
Ho added, “We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all Malaysians who have donated and supported us on this cause. As we look forward to wrapping up the year, we call on Malaysians to stay tuned and join in our upcoming birthday celebration — the Shopee 12.12 Birthday Sale.”
