“Shine A Light” – MakeYourAsia’s
first-ever charity campaign

This holiday season marked an important milestone for the MakeYourAsia team as we launched our first-ever charity campaign. We were fortunate to have the opportunity to collaborate with 3 organizations – TGM Research, W Business Center, along with HMC Professional Laundry and Cleaning – to make this event happen.

As we always put corporate social responsibility at the heart of our business practice, our company operations and services are selected carefully to adapt with the community as well as environmental standards. Therefore, we are extremely grateful and delighted to kick off this “Shine A Light” campaign initiative during this Christmas season. Aside from spending quality time with our beloved families, this is also the time to lend a helping hand and give back to the local community where we operate. With the motto ‘Give back, spread love’, we launched the campaign on December 5th and collected pre-loved clothes, toys, and stationery to donate to the SOS Children Village Go Vap.

With the support of W Business Center, we were able to set up three different addresses to collect the donations in Ho Chi Minh city center. After around a week, we collected a great amount of donations from various supporters at all three locations. All of the items were sorted and HMC Laundry assisted with disinfecting, washing, and making sure every piece of pre-loved objects is in the best condition.

On December 17th, representatives from the four organizations brought the donations to the children of the SOS Village in Go Vap district. Here, we got to visit all 17 houses within the village, met with the moms, and shared the gifts with the children. It was a bittersweet experience for us all as we got to know all the amazing families at the village; however, at the same time, some situations were heartbreaking to see. This meaningful event has undoubtedly put a reminder in every one of us to be thankful and appreciative for our taken-for-granted privileges.

We would like to send our most sincere gratitude to the amazing partners and supporters for making this campaign possible. Furthermore, we couldn’t have done this without all of the donors’ effort and generosity. Your kindness has contributed to a meaningful cause and helped the children at the SOS Children Village Go Vap have a somewhat warmer Christmas season. May this “Shine A Light” event be the start of many more charitable event that MakeYourAsia gets to join in the future!
