As the festive season unfolds and goes into full swing, Maxis has once again turned their attention to the less fortunate. In the spirit of giving, 70 guests from three charity homes in Sarawak were treated to a special Christmas party at CityONE Megamall in Kuching today.

Residents from the homes comprised infants, children, young adults and their respective caregivers. At the event, Maxis presented a total of RM30,000 to the homes namely The Salvation Army, Sarawak Children Cancer Society and Persatuan Bagi Kebajikan Kanak Kanak Terencat Akal, who were also presented with Christmas gifts through the much anticipated ‘Christmas Train’.

Maxis’ Head of Sarawak Region, Alexius Bong, led the Maxis team in distributing Christmas gifts to the guests, and also presented the contribution to representatives of the homes.

Meanwhile at the same venue, Maxis’ prepaid brand, Hotlink will also be organizing a special initiative in conjunction with Christmas called Youth4aCause, a singing competition in which all proceeds from the votes will be donated to charity. The competition, which will take place on 20 and 21 December here, is open to the public aged 12 to 30 years old, where they get to unleash their singing talent for a chance to win the Grand Prize of RM2,000.

The qualifying round of the Youth4aCause competition will be on 20 December, where the Top 10 participants will be selected and move on to perform in the final round on 21 December.
