P&G Malaysia Celebrates 30th Anniversary

P&G Malaysia kicked off their 30th Anniversary Celebration with a series of exciting activities for employees and external stakeholders. All the activities centered around giving back and improving the lives of various communities in need.

Firstly, the 30th Anniversary celebration was kicked off internally with a special ‘Food Truck’ lunch for employees and 400 workers in the office building, who were treated with an assortment of pasta, burgers and fries in return for donating books to the “P&G Light Bulb Project”. The project is aimed at raising money and compiling books to build libraries for Orang Asli children, in partnership with The Budimas Charitable Foundation, an NGO that supports the welfare and the well-being of orphans and underprivileged children in Malaysia. A total of about 2,000 books have been collected and RM40,000 have been raised so far!

The celebration continued with a special 30th Anniversary Celebration Dinner for employees and their spouse/partners, together with 50 members of P&G Malaysia’s alumni (including some of the ‘pioneers from 1987), distributors, as well as media, business & trade partners. Themed “Colors of Malaysia”, the dinner was made even more special with the presence of the Guest of Honor – the new US Ambassador to Malaysia, Ambassador Kamala Shirin Lakhdhir.

That’s not all – just a few days after the fun & festivities, there was a media launch of “Daripada Ibu, Kepada Ibu” (“From Mothers to Mothers”), a nationwide campaign in conjunction with the 30th Anniversary that encourages Malaysians to help ease the burden of single mothers during the Muslim holy month of Ramadhan by making donations of non-perishable goods.

Together with well-loved Malaysian actress and television host, Izreen Azminda and Food Aid Foundation, the campaign takes place from 15th of May to 30th of June at 50 participating outlets of all major retail stores throughout the country. Customers who purchase RM30 or more worth of P&G products will be entitled to receive a ‘Beg Hati’ (‘Heart Bag’). They are then encouraged to fill that bag or any other bag with non-perishable items such as canned or dried food, cooking oil or detergent and drop them off at collection boxes placed at the selected participating outlets. Food Aid Foundation will collect the items at the end of the campaign and distribute them to single mothers across Malaysia.

P&G Malaysia is committed to touching, improving and enriching the lives of ALL Malaysians, especially the underserved communities. As part of the 30th Anniversary campaign, in addition to Orang Asli children and single mothers, P&G Malaysia will also help flood victims and Malaysians with no access to clean drinking water via the Children’s Safe Drinking Water initiative.
