If you’re heading out for dinner soon or just got back from your evening stroll, take a moment to think about what can RM10 do for you?
We ask you this because according to UNICEF, RM10 can buy 20 exercise books and 20 ballpoint pens for school, a bottle of Permethrin shampoo for treatment of scabies (a skin disease), or four 400 gram cartons of high energy biscuits for malnourished children.
So, if you would like to start the new year on a high note and just happen to have RM10 to spare, then Groupon’s joint project with UNICEF called “Groupon for Children” might be just the way to kick it off. With a presence in more than 190 countries and territories, UNICEF has been helping children around the world by providing vaccines , health and nutritional support, and basic necessities like water and sanitation.
Available from 3 January 2012 to 12 January 2012, the “Groupon for Children” is a way to allow Malaysians to contribute towards the gift of hope in saving and improving children’s lives both in and outside Malaysia. 100% of the proceeds of each Groupon will go to UNICEF Malaysia.
