KUALA LUMPUR, 4 July 2019 – Over a period of ten days, from 30 May to 8 June, Shell Malaysia has raised a total of RM1.92 million in its fifth ‘Anda Beli, Kami Derma’ Raya Charity Campaign.
During the ten days, Shell had pledged to donate 1 sen for every litre of Shell fuel pumped and 1 sen for every RM1 spent at Shell SELECT stores to the National Cancer Society Malaysia, Food Aid Foundation, and Malaysian Nature Society.
2019 is also the second consecutive year that Shell’s partner, Mastercard, joined this effort. Mastercard contributed 1 sen to the Food Aid Foundation for every litre of Shell fuel pumped and every RM1 spent at Shell SELECT stores paid for with any Mastercard credit or debit cards.
Motorists were also given the option to donate to the organisation of their choice this year. Additionally, Shell’s agencies and partners came together to support this initiative through contributions in the form of media advertising and resources.
Shairan Huzani Husain, Managing Director of Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn Bhd and Shell Timur Sdn Bhd applauded the collection this year and shared, “We are once again humbled by the generosity and support of our Malaysian motorists, in helping us raise a total of RM1.92mil for the organisations in just 10 days. We wish to thank all our customers and partners for contributing to this cause. In line with our mission to make life’s journeys better for all Malaysians, we hope this initiative will continue to inspire others to extend a helping hand for those who are in need.”
Perry Ong, Country Manager of Malaysia and Brunei, Mastercard said, “This partnership has been instrumental in encouraging Malaysians to use cashless payments for their everyday purchases, while at the same time, give back to the community and impact the lives of the less privileged. Contributions made through this campaign will support local causes, including the provision of meals for children in need. Driven by its philosophy of ‘doing well by doing good’, Mastercard is committed to collaborating with partners like Shell who share the same philosophy.”
The continuous support and generosity of Malaysian motorists has encouraged Shell to run this campaign annually to spread the spirit of caring and sharing and to create a positive impact on more lives. The funds collected from this year’s ‘Anda Beli, Kami Derma’ campaign will go towards supporting the organisations’ efforts in building a brighter future for the communities they serve.
