The best things in life are mostly free. Like hugs, smiles, friends, family, love, laughter, sleep and good memories. While some of us are lucky to experience this, there are also some who yearns to feel these things; especially if they are at the lowest point in their life.
The story of Juan Mann (pronounced One Man) is no stranger when it comes to free hugs campaigns. In fact, he was the one who started this movement in Australia over 10 years ago. His intention was to provide support, comfort and sense of encouragement in the form of a hug.
Here in PeopleGiving and Manulife, we strive to make a difference in someone’s life by doing something meaningful. As we always believe, every little counts. In this month of April, we are geared up to give out more than 2,000 hugs and to raise RM 20,000 for charity. The proceeds from the fund will be channeled to Rumah Safiyyah, Shah Alam, Selangor and Pusat Jagaan Kasih Sayang Jing Yuan, Cheras, Kuala Lumpur as our recipients for this campaign.
Rumah Safiyyah currently provides shelter and care for 75 children, between the age of 4 and 16 years old. Most of these orphans are referred to by other organizations. While, Pusat Jagaan Kasih Sayang Jing Yuan provides hospice care services to end stage patients whose families are facing financial hardship or patients who have no relatives to care for them. The hospice is currently able to accommodate 16 patients in the center.
To commemorate this campaign, our fund-raising team will be giving out free hugs in return for your kind contribution nearing the end of the fund-raising period, on Saturday, 30 April 2016 at OneUtama Shopping Complex from 2pm to 4pm.
Please help us to make a difference for the kids and the cancer patients at Rumah Saffiyah and Pusat Jagaan Kasih Sayang Jing Yuan respectively! The best part is of course, you’ll get a hug from us!
Donate now and we hope to see you on 30 April!
Date: 30th April 2016, Saturday
