KUALA LUMPUR, 18 MAY 2018 – Shell invites all Malaysians to make a difference in the lives of underprivileged children through its Shell Raya Charity Campaign 2018. Now in its fourth year, this initiative has been expanded to take place over 9 days, with an increased donation of up to 2 sen (RM0.02) for every litre of fuel pumped with the participation of Mastercard.
On 19 May, 26 May, 2 June and 9 until 14 June 2018, Shell will donate 1 Sen (RM0.01) for every litre of fuel pumped at any Shell station nationwide. An additional donation of 1 Sen (RM0.01) per litre will be made by Mastercard when motorists pay using their Mastercard.
“Shell’s mission is to make life’s journeys better for all Malaysians, by offering high quality fuels and making a positive impact in the communities where we operate. Children are the future of our nation, and we believe in supporting those in need to help them achieve their full potential. Through the generous support of Malaysians over the past 3 years, we have made a difference in the lives of over 5,200 underprivileged children.” said Shairan Huzani Husain, Managing Director of Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn Bhd and Shell Timur Sdn Bhd.
He added that this year, Mastercard has also decided to join the program. “Shell is proud to have Mastercard as an exclusive partner for the Shell Raya Charity Campaign 2018. We are confident that together with Malaysian motorists, we can empower more children and give them hope for a brighter future”, said Shairan.
Perry Ong, Country Manager, Malaysia and Brunei, Mastercard echoed the sentiment, “Mastercard is honoured to collaborate with Shell on a campaign that gives back to the community during one of Malaysia’s key festive seasons. This initiative underscores Mastercard’s commitment to support important causes such as children’s development as part of its global Priceless Causes effort which brings together partners and cardholders to do good. Donations will play a part in supporting the provision of school meals as an essential form of nourishment for children’s wellbeing. Additionally, cardholders can also make charitable contributions via the Mastercard Donations Platform, a digital platform which lets people donate conveniently and safely.”
The Shell Raya Charity Campaign focuses on capacity building for underprivileged children since its inception in 2015. Thanks to the generosity and support of Malaysian motorists, donations have allowed charitable organisations to fund educational programmes, renovate facilities, and upgrade office equipment.
This year, the funds will be donated to seven selected charitable organisations across the country; The Kalsom Movement (Nationwide), Yayasan Chow Kit (Klang Valley), Majlis Kebajikan Kanak-Kanak Malaysia (East Coast, North, South), Project T.R.Y (Transforming Rural Youth, Sabah), Pertubuhan Ibu Bapa Kanak-Kanak Keperluan Istimewa Sarawak, Montfort Youth Training Centre (Sabah), and HAUS (Sarawak).
Every contribution matters, and Motorists are invited to take part in this initiative beginning Saturday, 19 May 2018 by simply fuelling up at any Shell station nationwide. Be sure to mark the remaining dates – 26 May, 2 June and 9 until 14 June 2018 – in your calendar.
