Digi has launched a fundraising initiative called Yellow Heart COVID-19 Aid to help Ministry of Health (MoH) and its frontliners via the GLC/GLIC Disaster Relief Network (GDRN). Originally established in 2013, the GDRN was previously involved in various relief and reconstruction efforts over the years, with a bulk of them were during major floods at several states throughout the country between 2013 and 2016.
With the objective to raise at least RM 50,000 within the next 29 days, the Yellow Heart COVID-19 Aid fundraiser is aimed solely at Digi customers. All the contributions from this fundraiser will be used by GDRN to help MoH obtain medical supplies as well as personal protective equipment (PPE) and ventilators in their fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
Starting immediately, Digi customers can donate to the cause directly through MyDigi app by purchasing the Yellow Heart COVID-19 Aid passes that are located inside the Rewards section of the app. The passes are available in several nominations including RM 2, RM 5, RM 10, and RM 20.
Interesting enough, Digi users are only able to purchase each pass once which means that the telco is only accepting maximum donation of RM 37 from each of its customers. The donation amount will be deducted directly from customers’ credit if they are Digi Prepaid users while Digi Postpaid customers would able to see it inside their next bill.
Members of the public can keep track of the fundraiser’s progress through the Yellow Heart COVID-19 Aid section of Digi’s official website right there. If you are looking for more ways to donate, do check out our list of COVID-19 relief efforts right as well.
For the meantime, don’t forget to wash you hands and please stay at home as much as possible. Together, we’ll have a better chance to stop the spread of COVID-19 infections.
