The SEA Games are well under-way now, and the hype is high for everyone who’s interested to watch the games. Of course, we’re all rooting for our athletes to win! We also need new athletes to keep blooming and winning future Games, so if you want to do your bit in furthering the cause, here’s your chance – and best yet, you can do it while you’re couch potato-ing the SEA Games!
Who is PINTAR Foundation?
PINTAR Foundation is a non-profit organisation dedicated to providing equitable access to quality education for rural and under-served schools in Malaysia. It hopes to get more private and government-linked companies to adopt under-served schools in the country, but it doesn’t just focus on the welfare of the school: it cares for the students, too, which is why it is partnering with the Ministry of Education to reward its Tokoh Sukan 2017 charges with a gift from Samsung.
How Can You Help?
Samsung Malaysia Electronics “gives hope with every Ringgit spent” on Lazada in purchase of any electronics via its official Lazada store. Simple spend more than RM500 in a single purchase through the official store, and this will trigger Samsung to donate a Samsung Tab A tablet to 50 deserving Tokoh Sukan 2017 winners organised and selected by the Ministry of Education.
But that’s not all! To further sweeten the deal, Lazada will also donate sports equipment while the official SEA Games merchandise store will give away SEA Games closing ceremony tickets, to complement the Samsung tablets. The deserving budding athletes will be able to further hone and enjoy their sport as well as use the tablet to further their education.
What Will You Get?
As a thank-you for helping reward outstanding children, Lazada will reward you with RM50 off your next purchase, as long as you’re one of the first 300 to participate in this charity purchase. This basically means you’re kind of rewarding yourself with what amounts to 10% of your kind deed, if you’ve donated RM500 to the cause. It’s nice to know that your inevitable purchase of Samsung products will end up benefiting others as well, isn’t it?
When Can You Help?
This charity will only run till 24th August 2017, so you’ll have to move fast in order to reward and motivate a sportsperson-to-be! But don’t worry, if you want to do more than a specific, one-time donation, you can connect with PINTAR Foundation and see how you can help our children of tomorrow.
Who Else is Helping?
Samsung’s partnership with Lazada for this give-away is part of Lazada’s Mega Sports Day Expo, an event launched in conjunction with the 29th SEA Games, held in Malaysia this year. And of course, the PINTAR Foundation is in as well, waiting to gift beneficiaries of this event presents that will be sure to brighten their days.
