Bless A Child Today With Your Old Books And Toys!

All kids need is a little help, a little hope and somebody who believes in them. The ‘Happy Library in a Box' program aims to help underprivileged children in Malaysia receive the education and love they deserve at a young age.

So if you have any old books and toys that are unused, don't throw them away! Donate it to our Happy Library instead and you have now given hope to our seeds of today, who will one day grow to be the flowers of tomorrow.


Happy Library in a Box (1st)

A program created to collect used children books & toys for under privileged children, mainly "Orang Asli" in 66 villages across Malaysia. The aim is to bring joy and provide literacy & education to the children, empowering them to break the cycle of poverty.

Do you know that ‘One in every two Orang Asli under poverty line'. Nearly half of the 30,000 Orang Asli households (or 150,000 people) were living below the poverty line. Of these, about 5,700 households (19%) were considered to be hardcore poor. They are mainly located in Sabah & Sarawak.


At the same time, drop your name card and get a free PeopleGiving's postcard. You can write a personal encouragement message and the postcard will be delivered together with the books and toys to the children. You will also automatically be PeopleGiving's member. 


HappyLibrary is created and operated by PeopleGiving in partnership with Living Hope Malaysia. PeopleGiving is a registered non-profit organisation started by a group of volunteers. The whole program is managed through the spirit of volunteerism. This program is funded by PeopleGiving and our generous sponsors. We acknowledge all sponsors by featuring them separately in our 6 different "tree house" boxes. Not forgetting all the volunteers that have contributed unselfishly to the whole program. PeopleGiving is also collaborating with The Star – Do Good Volunteers, calling for more volunteers to make this program a success.


HappyLibrary program is a one year project whereby 6 locations have been identified to host this program in alternate month, starting from Jan 2013. The duration for collection is one month per location. The box is uniquely designed to a symbolic "tree house" and built with mainly recycled material. There will be 6 different designs, unique to each location. After the completion of one month of collection in each location, the "tree house" will be donated to orphanage as a play house for the children.


  • Help us to gather the used children books and toys from family and friends, and drop it into our box.
  • Join our team as a volunteer. PeopleGiving has more upcoming charity program that you can contribute. Contact us at volunteers@peoplegiving.org
