KUCHING: The new year started on a high for four Shell loyalists as they were announced as grand prize winners of ‘Nak Ekstra RM20,000?’, a weekly campaign aimed at turning Malaysians’ everyday journeys into rewarding experiences.
This campaign rewards one grand prize winner with RM20,000 and 20 consolation prize winners with RM1,000 weekly. A total of 84 winners have been rewarded and there are 126 grand prize and consolation prize winners to be announced until the end of the campaign period.
The campaign is into its sixth week and will continue to reward Malaysians for five more weeks until Feb 9.
Shell Malaysia hosted a special celebration for the grand prize winners, namely Mohd Raffi Ismail from Bangi, Muhd Shukri Muhd Deris from Pahang, and Azniza Abu Bakar from Negeri Sembilan who attended the event to share their stories on their journey forward with RM20,000.
For week three’s grand prize winner, Muhd Shukri, the win could not have come at a better time. “While I am excited to see my six-year-old daughter start her schooling years, I was worried about the costs; from her books to school uniform and even school fees.
“Imagine my relief when I was told I won the RM20,000 grand prize from Shell Malaysia. This unexpected extra cash is a blessing for my wife and I as it will contribute to our savings for our children’s education,” he said.
Gunaraj Murugasan, who is week two’s grand prize winner said, “For me, nothing is more important than my family’s wellbeing and that of fellow Penangites. I am an active member of the rotary club and we are always looking for ways to help communities in need.
“Now, Shell Malaysia will be part of our efforts to improve the lives of others as I plan to share the RM20,000 with those who truly need it.”
Meanwhile, RM20,000 for week four’s grand prize winner Azniza meant that she could fulfil her dream of owning a house.
“The extra RM20,000 is more than enough for me to pay off a house and still have some left for my savings. I am relieved as my prayers have been answered, and I thank Shell for this,” she said.
Shairan Huzani Husain, the managing director of Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn Bhd and Shell Timur Sdn Bhd said, “This is not a Shell story, this is a Malaysian story of lived experiences.”
“We understand that many are faced with life’s hurdles and challenges and my goal is for us to help as many Malaysians as we can and we are doing this through the ‘Nak Ekstra RM20,000?’ campaign by giving Malaysians a platform to go further and do more.”
The event was also attended by the consolation prize winners.
With five more weeks to go, there is still time for Malaysians to partake in the campaign by first spending a minimum of RM40 in one receipt at any Shell station nationwide and then submitting their details, with a receipt attached, via a physical contest form or by scanning a QR code for online submissions.
As part of the campaign, Shell is also hosting roadshows at selected cities across Malaysia with exciting activities and amazing prizes to be won at East Coast Mall, Kuantan (Jan 9); Gurney Plaza, Penang (Jan 10); Vivacity Mall, Kuching (Jan 17); and MyTOWN Cheras, Kuala Lumpur (January 17).
