Festive MAGGI campaign raises over RM40,000

Date:

KUCHING: MAGGI has raised funds over RM40,000 for charity homes in East Malaysia.

The recently-concluded MAGGI “Jom Masuk & Berkongsi Bersama” campaign which celebrated the Tadau Kaamatan and Hari Gawai festivities in Sabah and Sarawak respectively, raised a total of RM42,437 in aid of the underprivileged communities.

Proceeds from the campaign will be channeled to three charity homes, two in Sarawak and one in Sabah namely the Malaysian Red Crescent Society in Sabah as well as Hope Place and Special Needs Society Kuching in Sarawak.

The “Jom Masak & Berkongsi Bersama” closing ceremony was held at Vivacity Megamall today.

Geetha Balakrishna, Business Executive Officer of MAGGI, Nestlé (Malaysia) Berhad said that it is grateful and humbled by the love and support it has been receiving from the communities in East Malaysia over the years.  

“It is indeed a privilege for us to celebrate the Tadau Kaamatan and Hari Gawai festivities together with the community, while extending our helping hand to the underserved segments of the society through our MAGGI “Jom Masak & Berkongsi Bersama” campaign,” she said.  

Also in attendance was Kuching South City Council (MBKS) Mayor, Datuk Wee Hong Seng and Branch Manager of Everrise Vivacity, Jessie Hee.

The mayor said it is no surprise that over the years MAGGI has been heavily involved in local community events such as conducting cooking demonstrations, recipe-sharing and roadshows in Sarawak.

“As MAGGI strongly believes that ‘You and MAGGI Cook the Difference’, MAGGI® has also pledged to donate 10sen of each contest entry towards charity organisations such as Hope Place and Special Needs Society Kuching in Sarawak.

“Both Hope Place and Special Needs Society Kuching will be receiving upgrades to their existing living facilities as well as contributions in the form of food supplies, handicraft materials, sewing machines and household items, which will then be distributed to its members and the communities in need, including people with intellectual disability, orphanages and welfare homes”, Wee said.

The MAGGI “Jom Masak & Berkongsi Bersama” campaign ran from May 1 to June 30.

Winner of the grand prize from Sarawak, Mohamad Shamsuddin Sanuri, will drive home a brand new Toyota Hilux Double Cab 2.4E (AT) 4X4.

The runners-up from Sarawak and Sabah will receive cash prizes of RM2,000, each.
