"We were inspired by something we read on social media, when a chairman of a university in Malaysia personally donated equipment to a hospital treating Covid19 patients. We wanted to do something too and, like him, to inspire others to take action and spread kindness. That’s why we set up a crowdfunding campaign for our Frontliners, with our NGO partner IMARET. Our initial target was RM300,000 (USD70,000), but the response was overwhelming. We were completely taken by surprise, and it truly revealed to us the love and kindness among Malaysians. We were so proud and excited about this. We raised our target, and also started another campaign with our partner (MODA) to purchase materials and sew PPE suits. In the end we managed to raise RM1.78m (USD414,000). Everyone contributed what they could and we had over 30,000 donors! The frontliners' sacrifice is something our nation can never forget and we should never again take them for granted. Not just healthcare workers, but police, essential service industry, food delivery guys, supermarket workers, all of them. We hope that the kindness we have seen carries on. This covid19 episode is making us see life differently. When we come out of this, we won’t be taking a lot of things for granted anymore like hugging our parents or having a meal with our colleagues or smiling at someone you see on the streets." - Vivy and Fadza https://www.simplygiving.com/fv-covid19-support-fund FashionValet.com
“A few years ago, I used the SimplyGiving platform to raise funds in conjunction with a marathon I was running. I can personally vouch for the great experience at SimplyGiving. By using their platform, they made it so easy for the people in my network to contribute to my charity of choice, Make-A-Wish Malaysia. My fundraising project was initiated and completed in a timely and secure manner. SimplyGiving has really simplified the concept of giving for people who want to make a difference to the lives of those in need. So, why wait? Go ahead and start your own fundraising campaign through SimplyGiving today!” - Tengku Zafrul Aziz
"As the great Whitney Houston once said, “I believe the children are our future, teach them well and let them lead the way.” Every parent wants the best for their child. As a father of a 2-year-old autistic child, there are additional challenges, but I am no different. My family treats my son with unwavering love for which I would be eternally grateful. However, with over 300,000 people in Malaysia on the autism spectrum, I often wonder how their families are coping. I wanted to give them a voice, hope and a reason to believe in. SimplyGiving's online fundraising platform provided me that opportunity. As an avid runner, I channelled my passion for the sport whilst raising awareness for autism. I believe this to be my life purpose. To date, I have completed several runs including my first full marathon in 2017 where I raised RM40,000 through SimplyGiving for the National Autism Society of Malaysia (NASOM). I remember crossing the finish line in tears as it marked a personal running milestone fuelled by a passionate cause. In September this year, I will continue my life's mission by completing 100KM at Janda Baik Ultra 2019. Everyone can make a difference. You just need to make the first step." - Mohd Dzulkaedah
"Missed opportunities and the story of my life. Growing up, I took my education for granted as I dedicated much of my time and effort into other adverse avenues. Unfortunately for me, these poor decisions led to severe repercussions later in life as my career plateaued early and I grew envious of my peers’ success stories and lifestyles. There were many regrets and questions of “what-ifs” but I was never going to turn back time. It was then that I decided to give back to the community. As a fitness enthusiast, I wanted to synergize my passion for running with my mission of ensuring all underprivileged children had access to proper education. SimplyGiving enabled me to do just that. Since 2017, I have used SimplyGiving to raise funds for Rumah Aman Children's Home and UNICEF Malaysia via my races. Although most of my races are both physically and emotionally demanding, my undying passion to serve these charities often powered me across the finish line. It has been a real journey and I still get excited over a new donation notification. It is what keeps me going. Wait no longer, come join me!" - Wooi Keat
"You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream - C.S Lewis. "For many people, turning fifty is usually a massive milestone. Afterall, it indicates that you have lived for half a century whilst bearing witness to fifty years of history! Now, that’s a HUGE deal for many people. Thus, it is unsurprising to see people crossing this “Great Divide” with a sense of apprehension. I on the other hand chose to see it differently. I was raring to take on the second half of my life with full gusto. Many goals were set but none would compare to scaling Mount Kinabalu. A personal quest dating many years ago, I was dead set on making it a reality despite two failed attempts. To make my pursuit more purposeful, I engaged with Simply Giving prior to my next attempt. As a firm believer for children’s education, I pledged my support to Kebajikan Pergerakan Adil (PKPA). The third attempt was filled with obstacles, constantly begging my body to stop. However, I soldiered on. My commitment to the children of PKPA was the extra motivation I needed to succeed in addition to raising RM12,000 towards a worthy cause. If a fifty-year-old “aunty” can do it, what’s stopping you?" - Natasha Lee Abdullah
“Refugees are mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, children, with the same hopes and ambitions as us—except that a twist of fate has bound their lives to a global refugee crisis on an unprecedented scale.” – Khaled Hosseini . At Ideas Academy, we strongly believe that education is an empowering force and it is our mission to embody this belief. Having engaged with students from all walks of life, we see the same burning desire to succeed in all of them. Although there is a degree of fear and apprehension amongst those who have experienced loss of loved ones, we take it in our stride to encourage them whilst instilling lots of positivity. Afterall, the only thing more powerful than fear is hope. A hope for something better, that is well within their grasp. . As a passionate educator, I am eternally grateful to Simply Giving for enabling me to devote my full attention to our students and not needing to worry about the organization’s financial position. Together, we will strive to ensure that no child is left behind. Education is a basic human right. Let’s keep it that way.
