I am what I am………
A journey of giving and bringing extra cheer in a roving truck filled with more than 1,500 children’s wishes.
Malaysian conglomerate, Sunway Group has rolled out its giving truck, just in time as the year-end approaches and the Klang Valley community gets into the holiday spirit.
A brainchild of the Sunway Group, the “Celebrate Giving with Sunway” project is part of Sunway Group’s sustainabilty initiatives under the #SunwayforGood banner. Sunway Group Corporate Advisor Tan Sri Ramon Navaratnam flagged off the truck at the Group’s headquarters yesterday.
The wish-fulfilling truck, which is supported by Sunway Pals, Fujifilm, Parkson and AEON will tour around Klang Valley, reminding citizens that we can all ‘grease the wheels’ to make a difference. Fashioned as a giant gift wrapped in red, the truck carries more than 1,500 wishes of the children from thirty welfare homes in the Klang Valley.
“For the project, each child was asked to pick something he or she wished for across five categories ranging from school necessities, sporting equipment, household goods to toys. Come December, these children will have the opportunity to enjoy themselves and have their wish fulfilled by the generous public,” explained Sunway Group Brand Marketing and Communications Senior General Manager Jane Poh.
“Sunway is committed to the Sustainable Development Goals and this project intends to send a heart-warming message that a meaningful future is really about bringing those who have together to uplift those who have not so no one will be left behind.”
Right up to December 15, members of the public who would like to send their heartfelt messages to these children and help make their holiday dreams come true can look out for the #SunwayforGood truck which will be roving around the Klang Valley from 11 am to 7 pm on weekdays and 12 pm to 8 pm on weekends. Once a donation is made, the benefactor will have a picture taken and the gift will be sent to the child along with a personalised holiday wish and message.
