19 Nov Fella Design celebrates Merdeka by giving back!
To celebrate 2018’s Merdeka and Malaysia Day, Fella Design decided to do something very special. We reached out to several orphanages and ended up deciding to work together with Lighthouse Children Welfare Home Association, an excellent private institution that provides shelter for underprivileged children, children who have been sexually abused, and children from alcoholic or drug abuse families.
Lighthouse Children Welfare Home Association, located in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur, is managed by Jacinta and her husband. They weren’t professionals when they started, they were just ordinary people who want to help. Now, Lighthouse Children Welfare Home Association supports 67 Malaysian children between the ages 4-21 in 5 different homes. The challenges and obstacles they face on a daily basis are stupendous, and they needed every bit of help they can get in supporting these deserving children.
Fella Design organized a video fundraising campaign to provide Lighthouse Children Welfare Home Association with some much needed funds to help pay for school fees, school uniforms and toiletries. We even featured some of the children from the institution itself in our video!
With every share of the video on Facebook, Fella Design would donate RM5 to support Lighthouse Children Welfare Home Association! By the end of 16th September 2018, Fella Design accumulated a total of 630 shares, translating into RM3,150 worth of donations from caring Malaysians!
We visited Lighthouse Children Welfare Home Association to deliver the cheque and money, whilst at the same time sitting down for a chat with Jacinta and treating the kids to a delicious meal. Check out all the happy faces in the photos we took!
With the first change of government after our independence, there seems to be a tremendous spirit of optimism in the air. As Malaysia moves forward, Fella Design moves forward too! We aim to always remember to give back to our fellow Malaysians, whoever they are! Do follow our Facebook page for updates on promotions and sales!
